In addition to pipeline solutions, Arseal’s team also engineers storage facility layouts and designs systems for transporting products between pipeline and storage and other methods of transport including truck, rail, and marine. Product received from pipeline must be metered and stored properly before being sent via an alternate transport method to the end user or consumer. In addition, many pipelines require intermediate pumping stations to keep it moving long distances or have delivery facilities which distribute this product to smaller “shippers.” These type facilities do not always have on-site storage, but will still have custody transfer meters and systems to ensure the proper product batch is delivered to the appropriate customer.
