Cold Weather Tank Coating Case

Cold weather, especially severe conditions, present problems on two fronts for the oil industry. Firstly, oil has to be kept at a working temperature for transportation and storage, and secondly, coating maintenance work needs ‘ideal’ conditions where conventional epoxies are concerned.

The problem for a major oil and gas exploration company, at a tank farm in Wyoming, was that cold weather makes it extremely difficult to apply conventional epoxy coatings in anything but ideal temperatures, typically at 55 degrees Fahrenheit due to lengthy curing times and the need for the coating liquid to be applied efficiently.
