Annual earthing inspection

As a hazardous environment, the tank farm area requires the continual monitoring of its tank safety and protection system. And the tank earthing is one of the most important components of the system. The inspection of the oil storage tank earthing is of highest priority at Black Sea Terminal. Inadequate earthing in tank farms can compromise the protection and safety system of tank farms and cause severe damage and injury to personnel due to catastrophic lightning strikes.


As part of a planned maintenance system, Black Sea Terminal has recently completed the inspection of the earthing system in its tank farms. During inspection, the integrity and performance of the earthing system was assessed.


The results of the inspection did not reveal any issues with the system. However, this positive finding will not affect the frequency of future earthing system inspections, as BST will continue to strive to ensure a safe and well-functioning work environment for all of its employees.
