OPIS, PortStorage Group team up on tank storage database
Jan 31, 2012 10:04 AM
Oil Price Information Service (OPIS), a leader in petroleum spot, wholesale and retail news and pricing data, has partnered with PortStorage Group, an international provider of independent and commercial petroleum tank storage facility information, to create what they say is the world’s largest tank storage database.
PortStorage Group, through its on-line product www.TankTerminals.com, delivers up-to-date international terminal information for those looking for storage and transhipment of crude oil, petroleum products, liquid chemicals, and more, and for those firms that service tank terminaling companies.
“Combining the OPIS/STALSBY North American bulk liquid terminal database with TankTerminals.com now offers a truly worldwide picture of the petroleum storage landscape--giving industry professionals access to approximately 3,500 terminals,” says OPIS President, Brian Crotty.
“Because the combined OPIS/STALSBY and PortStorage Group database is now made available at one single location, www.tankterminals.com and that the entire database is maintained on-line 24/7, this platform offers an easily accessible and constantly available reference guide for, amongst others, factual tank terminal information, an up-to-date news section, and a professional Knowledgebank,” says PortStorage Group Managing Director Rob Luijendijk.
The fully searchable TankTerminals.com provides the name/location of the facility, contact details for key personnel, tank storage capacity, tank range, tank types, and the types of cargo that can be stored. Details for waterfront terminals are also included and can reveal whether a facility may handle other modes of transport such as barge, road, rail, and pipeline. Virtually any terminal listed in the database has been furnished with its geographical coordinates. With Google Maps integrated in this website, any of these terminals can actually be seen from an elevated position in a map and satellite view.
