Does it actually have to pumped off? the fact the tank is sealed by water like an upside down heavy bucket, maybe you could simply take it straight off the top of the tank so to speak.
You'd also want to be very confident that there is no chance of ending up with a combustible mixture inside the gasometer. Gasometers at the old gas works didn't blow up, since in normal circumstances they didn't have enough oxygen inside to form a combustible mixture. Suffice to say that you need to be careful to avoid this circumstance, otherwise you've just built yourself a nice little bomb just waiting for static electricity or something else to set it off.
I'm not saying it's a dud idea, just thought I should point out some potential safety concerns that you need to address.
