By "most applicable" you mean exactly what...???

RE: Leak Detection in Aboveground Storage Tanks

Usually tight inventory control is the first head up.

Periodic double floor (if applicable) sampling/shell visual inspection.

Plus the usual 5 years external/10 years internal inspection by API accredited inspectors.
