Over the last few years, oil prices have increased, which has impacted the oil storage market positively. Due to the increasing demand for oil in countries in southeast Asia, the oil storage market is benefitted. In some countries in the region, such as China, where there is inadequate storage infrastructure for commodities such as oils, gases, and chemicals, the need for an adequate storage facility is propelling the oil storage market. The added benefit of securing future oil needs is also propelling the oil storage market in the region.

Oil storage units are subject to regulations that are in the interest of environment protection. During the cleaning process of oil storage tanks, the sludge that is released as a residue has to undergo cleaning under certain regulations, such as the Solid Waste Disposal Act, prior to release into the environment. Oil storage tanks have the potential to cause soil contamination at the operation site and the storage sections of the refinery through underground storage tanks and pipelines, which are subject to environment protection mandates as well.
