Does NFPA 68 Apply to Storage Area

New to NFPA 68.  Have a project that is assumed to require venting per NFPA 68:

10,000 sqft warehouse

Bulk storage (55 gallon drums) containing miscellaneous flammables. (acetone, Methyl alcohol, others)

 

Since the liquids are contained, does the facility in fact need the venting?  To me it's unclear since so much of NFPA 68 seems to be concerned with the container itself, not the building that the container sits in.  The required venting area seems large/difficult to accomplish.

 

I'd appreciate any feedback - please cite any reference if possible.

 

Thanks
