Location and Layout of the Base
The Structure of the Crude Oil Tank
The tanks used to store crude oil have a floating-roof configuration so that the deterioration of their contents as well as evaporation of petroleum components are kept to a minimum. In preparation for the winter months, the roof features a double-construction (or gdouble-deckh) structure, with steam plumbing arranged on top and sprinkler plumbing laid on the sidewall to melt snow accumulating on the rooftop. Further, the tanks are equipped with a foam firefighting system that permits remote control from the instrument room in the event of a fire.
The tanks are thoroughly designed to contain accidents, supported by the presence of an oil embankment running a total length of 14 km and serving also as an on-base road, as well as bulkhead embankments and peripheral protective embankments.
