The tanks (according to the original source article) are 200' in diameter and 20' high.
Thus, if filled to capacity, this would equate (roughly, truncating pi to 3.14) to 628,000 cubic feet of oil.
There are 0.133680556 cubic feet in a U.S. gallon.
This equates to 83951.39 gallons of oil.
As there are 42 gallons in a barrel of crude oil, this equates to just under 2,000 barrels of oil...

It just don't sit right with me. With every bit of info I read, I still keep on thinking something is missing or is this the true picture.
Probably been visiting ATS is the reason for my foil hat underneath my baseball cap as well.
Felling kind of Matrixy.
Originally posted by redhatYour math is off. There is actually about 4,697,766 gallons of oil in the tank if filled to the 20 ft mark... 4697766 gallons.
