The article analyzes the testing and diagnostic work in the tank farms of the Republic of Komi. These studies show a technical condition that operated in the Republic of Komi tanks have numerous defects and damage, among which the most dangerous are the crack-like defects of welds and differential settlement bases substantially reduce the carrying capacity of the tanks at low temperatures. At low temperatures the most probable operating limit state reservoirs defect is brittle fracture. Typical areas of destruction tanks are TESDA compound wall to the bottom, space technology and installation of patches holes in the wall, then there are areas where there is a concentration of stresses, and the welds to contain defects, capable of initiating brittle cracks Kieu.
