Recovery & Radar Gauging

Recovery

After oil is pumped, our maximum-efficiency stripping system returns all oil in the lines to either tank or vessel. This complete retrieval is accomplished through six-inch gravity-fed lines located below the main lines. These capture and drain the small amount of oil remaining in the main lines.

Radar Gauging

Because we are committed to continually upgrading our facility with the best in new technology, we installed the Saab Radar Gauging System in all our tanks. This internationally proven system yields instantaneous oil quantities in each tank every minute throughout the year. With an accuracy equivalent to manual gauges, the Saab system makes it possible to make product movement decisions on the spot, with no wasted time.
