Over time, petroleum sludge settles out of heating oil and coats the interior of the oil storage tanks.

A tank cannot be considered properly abandoned until the tank top is cut open and all of the sludge is washed out. Once washed the liquified sludge and all of the wash water must be pumped so that the tank is left completely empty (i.e. dry).

This pumped material is "hazardous" and must be properly disposed of with a disposal manifest to a licensed treatment facility.

Let Practical Environmental Solutions help you properly abandon your oil tank. It's the only way to end your liability!

Wow! This oil tank buried in 1960 had a lot of large holes. At the time of removal, it was still holding fuel meaning that it was leaking more fuel everyday. All of these old oil tanks have been in the ground too long!

PES can be very discreet in conducting Tank Evaluations. You would never even know that we were there.

At this site, a sun room had been built over the abandoned tank. Our metal detector and soil boring confirmed the location of the tank and that it had leaked.

Paperwork with the State of North Carolina achieved a “No Further Action” letter. This helped to sell the property.

Under-house evidence of an oil tank: Most oil furnaces have 2 3/8ths inch copper tubing supply lines. These lines are often left in the crawlspace after the underground oil tank is abandoned.

Any house built before 1975 is likely to have an underground oil tank. Over 90% of these old oil tanks have leaked.

PES conducts: metal detector tank searches, Oil Tank Evaluations and pipe inspections.
