In general, any change in the surroundings will affect the gas tank. For example, if you wish to erect a wooden structure (shed, etc.), the safety rules governing minimum distances from the tank will apply, i.e. the wooden structure must be at least ten metres from the tank.
Before embarking on any works that will alter the tank’s immediate surroundings, please contact the SOCAR area manager, who will visit the site and offer advice on potential additional protective measures as well as helping you with applications to the authorities for any planning permission you will require.
