OPIS Partners with PortStorage Group to Create World’s Largest Tank Storage Database
Rotterdam, The Netherlands / Gaithersburg, MD, USA, Jan 25, 2012 -- Oil Price Information Service (OPIS), a global leader in petroleum spot, wholesale and retail news and pricing data, and PortStorage Group, an international provider of independent and commercial petroleum tank storage facility information, are pleased to announce the creation of the world’s largest tank storage database.
PortStorage Group, through its on-line product, TankTerminals.com, delivers up-to-date international terminal information for those looking for storage and transhipment of crude, petroleum products, liquid chemicals, etc. and for those for whom tank terminals are the clients for their products and services. This database has now been merged with the OPIS/STALSBY database.
“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 around 3,500 terminals” said 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” said 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.
