ETV Company Performance Safety Engineering Inspection At The Biggest Underground Godown In Southeast Asia

For the first time, the most extensive underground storage of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) in Southeast Asia was built and is about to operate in Ba Ria – Vung Tau. The work is below the depth from more than 100m to nearly 200m above sea level, with a massive capacity of 240,000 tons.


The inspectors of the ETV company performed a partial safety technical inspection of equipment and pipeline systems at Hyosung vina company. For the first time, we went down to the underground LPG storage tunnel nearly 200 meters deep below the surface seawater to inspect the LPG import and export pipeline system.
