  • 'Bakken oil tank batteries typically operate without a purge gas sweep in the headspace above the oil. Instead, the tanks are maintained under a slight positive pressure from gas flashed from the oil while filling, but the tanks develop a vacuum when they are emptied. To limit negative pressure, air ...'
