RE: Cost Estimate for Liquid Ethylene storage

OK .... At around $5-7.5 gallon for this type of vessel, coatings and insulation (and foundations) I would guess ----- $2 to $3 million US dollars.

You haven't mentioned anything about land, fire protection systems, etc..etc

Please respect us and share with us any formal estimates that you get ....
