Facility Grounding & Bonding

Oil and Gas Grounding and Bonding

To minimize the risk of static discharge from the isolated metal bodies, before any of the static mitigation and lightning dissipation devices are installed, it is important that all the metal infrastructure including isolated metal assets are electrically bonded to a common grounded backbone.

Fiberglass Tank Static Drain (Static Lasso®)

fiberglass tank lightning and static protection installed by Petro Guardian to prevent fires.

The Static Lasso® is a system that deploys grounded non-corrosive material with a multitude of small points that remain in direct contact with the fluid and vapors inside a tank. In contrast to chains, rods, and plates, which are not effective since they present a flat surface, the Static Lasso® features a frayed carbon fiber assembly which contains a multitude of microscopic points.

Fiberglass Tank Static Protection

Steel Tank Lightning Protection Grounding Bonding Lightning Arresters

Fiberglass tanks at production and disposal sites are generally installed as part of a tank battery in combination with steel tanks. The risk of a lightning strike to an individual tank with a tank battery is almost impossible to evaluate, and a protection system is generally designed to protect the whole tank battery from a direct lightning strike. The protection system, however, must be designed in a manner that isolated metal bodies on the tank battery and on each individual fiberglass tank are bonded to the lightning protection system. A lightning rod based lightning protection system is installed directly over the tank vent piping infrastructure and bonding of isolated metal bodies is a core design component.
