Flexitanks For Crude Oil

Flexitanks For Crude Oil

Flexitanks are a cost effective solution to transporting and storing crude oil. They are the next step in delivering bulk liquids to oil production facilities and refineries, by using 20ft shipping containers as a carrier for liquid bulk materials. Flexitanks assist in reducing costs of cargo shipping and give operators more time to focus on operating their facilities instead of loading and unloading vessels. They offer a cost effective solution for moving oils from point A to point B.

Flexitanks—also referred to as flexibags, collapsible tanks, or bladders—are safe for storing hazardous materials like crude oil. This is especially important in today’s volatile oil market, when producers are scrambling for any space available to store their crude.
