Curtis Curtis Stewart, Manager Asset Integrity Management Group at JD King

In charge of the JD King group conducting inspections, cleaning and repairs on aboveground storage tanks. We conduct in-service inspections on all sized of tanks and internal inspections on tanks less than 60 feet in diameter. We can perform in-service repairs to secondary seals.
In addition to routine inspections and examinations, we can offer due diligence inspections on tanks and facilities that are being sold or purchased. When facilities are sold the tanks are required to be examined. This is not a thorough inspection but is to determine the suitability for continued service for the new owner.

For the small diameter tanks we can get them properly isolated, cleaned, inspected, repaired if needed, coated if needed, tested and de-isolated. This can save the tank owner or operator time and get the tank back in service. We can also install tank accessories and distribute and install the Jensen 401 tank mixer for tanks 1000 bbls or less.
