Above-Ground Storage (AST)

Reduce your footprint on location with above-ground storage tanks engineered for strength and quick assembly.

Rockwater is the leading above-ground storage tank provider in North America. Tanks are available in a variety of sizes ranging from 41,000 barrels (6,500 m3) to 4,500 barrels (735 m3). Our 41,000 barrel tank replaces 80 frac tanks, reducing the costs associated with transport, set up and removal. Each tank features high performance liners, fill and discharge tubes, and optional real-time data monitoring, heating, lids and netting. Best in class engineering allows each tank to live up to the high standards required in the industry. Rockwater tanks are designed and manufactured to operate in extreme conditions and will exceed even the most demanding expectations.

Nested Tanks

Rockwater’s custom nested tank helps reduce the risk of spill and associated clean up and soil testing expenses by combining the structural integrity and reliability of two Rockwater tanks. These can be erected within 24 hours on average and are available in every tank size up to 41,000 bbls.


Data on every Rockwater tank you have leased can be accessed on a computer or on our Rockwater app. Hydrometrix™ digital monitoring can report on water level, temperature, water quality and flow rates all in near real-time (30 minute intervals). Alerts can be sent when certain thresholds are reached either to your email, iPhone or via the Rockwater portal. Advanced contour depth mapping capabilities allow Hydrometrix to be used for in-ground impoundments as well.


Each tank can be delivered by just three trucks and erected in seven hours. We recommend a .25% grade at the setup location to allow maximum draining of the AST. Rockwater operators have experience with tank set-up in extreme heat and freezing weather conditions.


Unlike other heating methods, Rockwater’s unique Volcano heaters circulate heating fluid through piping and radiators placed inside the AST to heat from the center outward. This results in even heating to eliminate cold pockets, less energy consumption, 70% better thermal efficiency and can provide a 30-40 overall cost reduction in heating.


Our polyethylene and polypropylene liners are recognized for their superior performance when exposed to chemicals and UV rays and they undergo strict quality control measures and tests to ensure integrity. Each tank liner is available in multiple thickness levels, and installed over a geotextile underlayment to prevent any ground extrusions from damaging the liner. Lastly, Rockwater liners can be recycled.
