Leaderin Welded Steel Liquid Storage

Skinner Tank Company (STC) focuses on building new, welded steel, above-ground, liquid storage tanks per the requirements of the American Petroleum Institute's Standard 650 {API 650}. API 650 establishes minimum requirements for material, design, fabrication, erection, and testing of vertical, cylindrical, above-ground, closed-top, open-top, and floating-top, welded carbon steel, and welded stainless steel storage tanks.

STC also has the expertise to build AWWA D100 potable water tanks as well as NFPA 22 firewater tanks. While the petroleum industry is vital to our existence, we are also heavily involved with industries such as liquid fertilizer, liquid asphalt, liquid feed products, various food products, drinking water {for human and livestock consumption}, fire water, waste water, process water, alternative fuels {such as, Ethanol and biodiesels}, and a wide variety of other specialized chemicals.

While STC can build almost any size of tank, we are most competitive building tanks between 1,000 and 250,000 barrels in the petroleum industry, 200 to 50,000 tons for agricultural products, and between 50,000 and 12,500,000 gallons for most other industries.

A Longstanding Historyof Quality

Our company began building welded steel storage tanks under the business name Skinner Construction Company in 1972. Skinner Tank Company (STC) became an Oklahoma corporation in 1982. It was the vision of our founders, Larry Skinner and his father, Lester Skinner Sr., that helped propel the Skinner name, making this family owned company - now in its third generation of ownership and leadership - synonymous with quality tanks.

With origins in both the East Coast grain industry and the Midwest oil industry, STC has now literally provided billions of gallons of liquid storage capacity worldwide since the company's inception nearly five decades ago.
