Are you thinking of it seriously?
If yes, I would recommend you to look for a consultant or a consulting company, specialized in the area related to oil product tank farms / business.
A rough estimation may actually turn out to be a fake friend:
-The estimation can be or much too high or much too low, therefore leading to a wrong strategical decision.
--> Therefore, in order to maximise your chances of succes, you can hire a consultant / company specialized in the field.
Maybe a good tip would be to make friends / connections that are working or related to this area, if it is not already the case, in order to get informed before to take action.

I found 3 cases of tank oil farms, with same area (20,000 sqm)
I couldn't find in the desert, but these are in Africa (Nigeria).
"Farm tank is for sale in Calabar. Area covered is 20,000 sq m, 6 tanks in all with capacity of 5,000,000 liters each total 30,000,000 liters. Asking price 4 Billion naira"
"Land size approx = 20,000 square meters 6 tanks of various capacities, pump house, loading arm, gantry, gen. 6 loading arms.(...)
All tanks Equal 30,910,000 litres. "
"The tank farm has 6nos tanks of 5000MT each with a storage of 28,000,000 liters capacity and has administrative block, loading gantry, pump house, fire hydrant etc
(...) The land size is 20,000sq meters."
--> for these 3 examples, the total capacity range between 28,000,000 to 30,910,000 litres.--> They have all 6 tanks with same or various capacities.
So you have now a rough approximation of your maximal capacity: 30,000,000 litres.
If you want to estimate for a specific design, then just pick a design and consider you can have 6 tanks. Then you can calculate the maximal capacity: (6 time capacity-of-one-tank).
