GTT recently organised its first Seminar on GST® Membrane Full Integrity Systems at its Head Office in Saint-Rémy-Lès-Chevreuse, France.
From 14 - 16 April 2014, more than 40 delegates from EPCs, oil & gas majors, classification societies and engineering companies attended presentations and site visits to receive updates on the membrane full integrity technology dedicated to onshore storage.
Presentations throughout the first two days gave an insight into the latest design, procurement and construction features of the systems, as well as an interesting panel discussion with well known tank experts. A debated topic during this session was whether or not a membrane full integrity really requires a hydrostatic test during construction. Distinguished speakers offered their feedback on the subject: INEOS provided discussed the operation of the first membrane full integrity tank, which has been in service since 1972. Energy World Corp. also offered feedback on the tanks under construction in South East Asia.
Elengy organized a visit to the French LNG terminal of Montoir de Bretagne in Britany to close the seminar. A complete tour of the LNG terminal, including the surroundings of the LNG full integrity tanks (membrane and self supported) followed. Elengy also proved interesting feedback on the operation of the two membrane full integrity tanks.
