July 25, 2012 - PRLog -- The stiff competition that exists within the oil and gas industry has paved the way for an increase in the number of terminals being built and more stringent regulations being put into play over the years. With global demand, fluctuating oil prices and economic uncertainties, terminal operators are facing increased pressure in optimising their tank and piping operational efficiency and integrity.

Marcus Evans, one of the world’s largest conference organiser, has announced that the 4th BLS: Tank Integrity, Maintenance and Safety conference that is geared towards achieving excellence within the bulk liquid storage arena will be held on 10-12 September 2012 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The main theme of this conference is maximising storage tank integrity and safety through proactive inspection, maintenance and safety systems to optimise bulk liquid storage operations.

“The tank overfill event that led to the catastrophic fires and explosions at Buncefield in England has had a lasting significant effect on how companies manage their above-ground storage tank systems and has increased awareness of managing risks and preventing similar incidents.  The current international economic situation also has an effect on company operations, and the BLS event will provide an excellent opportunity for attendees to help their companies manage environmental and fire safety risks and still be competitive in the marketplace,” said Marshall Mott-Smith, Vice President, Board of Directors of National Institute for Storage Tank Management, USA, who will be chairing the 3-day conference.

The conference also features an extensive panel of speakers including Philip E. Myers, Former Codes and Standards Specialist from Chevron, USA and Director of PEMY Consulting, USA; Ben F.
