KRQO Avgas Storage and Dispensing System
The two-tank system is based on industry-proven fuel systems developed by Argus Consulting.
Argus provided design and construction services for a 12,000-gallon AVGAS fuel storage tank and 12,000-gallon JET-A fuel storage tank with 30 gpm over-wing self-service combined product dispensing skid at the El Reno Regional Airport in El Reno, Oklahoma.
This project is in association with apron pavement removal along with removal of the existing underground fuel storage facility. The new two tank system allows the airport to continue to support local and regional air traffic and is based upon industry-proven fuel systems designed and installed across the country as developed by Argus Consulting.
Each tank is configured to allow the installation of the 30 gpm over-wing self-serve dispenser with a credit card reader. Fuel is delivered via transport truck.
A new Emergency Fuel Shutoff (EFSO) system ties into the pump start/stop relays that sound an audible alarm when activated. Overhead lighting is incorporated into the canopy on the dispensing skid as well as additional overhead lighting to provide sufficient lighting of the tank area, unloading, and dispensing operations. The project included the removal of the existing underground storage tanks.
