They are also known as double skinned tanks due to the extra layer of steel preventing the liquid escaping. These oil storage tanks or fuel storage tanks ensure that there are no spillages as this can be harmful to the environment, 2 litres of oil can be spilled in a normal sized swimming pool of fresh water and this can make the water undrinkable. The oil must be disposed of correctly this is where bunded oil tanks come into play.
