Storage tank cut-off walls: What is at stake?

Cut-off walls act as containment structures: they can be installed as part of a storage tank, like a Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) storage project, or a silo to isolate an area and prevent any migration of material, generally in liquid form, into or out of the surrounding ground.

Operations at large industrial or energy facilities can contaminate the ground on which they are built. Cut-off walls prevent soil contamination by trapping liquid pollutants. They can even stop the spread of contamination when the soil is already polluted, by creating a watertight belt.
