Cost of a new tank

Cost of a new tank

Cost of a new tank

Anybody has an idea on the appx. cost of a new 100,000 gal., field erected, API 650 tank be in the Northeast ?   

RE: Cost of a new tank

You've got to be kidding? Even if someone answered this question, this is the wrong place to request costs like this. contact one of you local storage tank suppliers. They will be glad to give you a budget price, but be prepared to supply additional information so they can supply a reliable budget price.

RE: Cost of a new tank


A lot will depend on your foundation requirements and your selection of coatings.

Without any other information, I would guess about $2.50 - $3.75 per gallon for a bare tank.

Add about $18.00/sq ft for coatings (inside and out).

Add to this cost of foundation, platforms, secondary containments...etc.

Please come back to the forum, Steve ....with your figures !!!

Go Steelers !!!



RE: Cost of a new tank

Thanks MJ Cronin, at least I have some idea on cost.
FTank, I was not trying to get a quote, just a ball park figure on the steel tank.  The reason is that the existing tank will need an entirely new floor.

RE: Cost of a new tank

For starters check out Eagle Tanks in Aumsville, Oregon for prices on tanks.

RE: Cost of a new tank

Check with The tank shop too .... thetankshop.ca
