Tank Storage

Where shore meets ocean

At Riverlake, we know about tank storage. We focus on supporting our clients by providing project development services throughout the entire development cycle of a tank terminal.

Riverlake is your partner and supports you in the realisation of your plan.


Framing the process

Riverlake’s experienced engineers typically frame the process in a project-style format, where the project milestones are precisely mapped out.

Riverlake has adopted its proprietary Project Development Methodology manual to explicitly address the development of liquid bulk storage and associated jetties.

Actually, Riverlake supports you as soon as the idea of building a tank terminal, a jetty, an SBM for example starts to emerge.

We have many years of experience in the development of jetties to accommodate tankers that load and discharge liquid bulk and gases in and out of tank terminals.

Different phases require different approaches since the target changes from one phase to the next. In a first phase, the emphasis is on operational and financial issues in order to determine the viability of the project. When these criteria give the go-ahead, Riverlake guides and controls the customer’s project through several stages of development and always with both hands on the wheel.


Project Development Methodology

The Project Development Methodology Manual gives a good overview of what is to come.

Actually, Riverlake supports you as soon as the idea of building a storage, a jetty, an SBM for example starts to emerge. We are there from the initial phase of the project through a feasibility study. Then the following phases take place; concept definition – financing and permits – tendering – construction – commissioning and finally be in operation.


This is a process that will take several years, a great deal of patience, setbacks, cautious optimism and eventually celebrating when the ribbon can be cut.

At Riverlake, we have experienced all these aspects over and over again. As a result, we are convinced that our customers stand to benefit from this experience when developing a terminal or when acquiring, refurbishing, searching for a new terminal site.
