Oil Tank Installation

Below are some of the most frequently asked questions about our oil tank replacement service.

Bunded Oil Tanks

A bunded heating oil tank has two layers: an inner tank for holding the oil and an outer tank that protects the inner tank and reduces the risk of leaks or spills.

Single Skin Tanks

In simple terms, a single skin tank has one skin that the oil is held within. They are generally the cheaper option and easier to install.

Please note: We only install bunded heating oil tanks inline with OFTEC regulations.

To minimise the risk of fire when locating oil tanks, the following guidelines apply in relation to buildings and boundaries:

  • A minimum of 760mm should be maintained between the tank and a non-fire rated boundary, such as a wooden fence.
  • A minimum distance of 600mm should be maintained between the tank and a boundary hedge or shrubbery.
  • The tank should be positioned at least 1800mm (1.8m) away from doors and windows of a garage or house.
  • The tank should also be situated at least 1800mm (1.8m) away from the eaves of a building or garden sheds.

Furthermore, it is important to note that domestic tanks with a maximum holding capacity of 3500 litres or more must have a secondary holding tank known as a bunded oil tank. This provides an additional layer of protection and containment in case of any leaks or spills.

Decommissioned oil tanks are removed following the guidelines specified by the Northern Ireland Environmental Agency (NIEA). A consignment number is assigned to each oil tank removal, which is then included on a prenotification form submitted to the NIEA. This form serves to notify the NIEA about the planned date for the oil tank removal.
