Draft of PEI bulk storage plant installation recommended practices provided online
Mar 1, 2008 12:00 PM
The latest draft from the Petroleum Equipment Institute (PEI) is called Recommended Practices for Installation of Bulk Storage Plants. This recommended practices draft was produced by the PEI Bulk Plant Installation Committee and provides a basic reference that consolidates information concerning proper construction of new petroleum bulk storage systems. A printed copy of the draft has been mailed to all PEI members in the United States and Canada, along with a comment form. However, anyone interested in reviewing the draft can download a copy directly from PEI's web site at www.pei.org/rp800.
Information contained in the Installation of Bulk Storage Plants draft has been assembled from published and unpublished sources provided by equipment manufacturers, contractors, installers, bulk plant facility owners, and regulators. The intent is to describe recommended practices for the construction of new petroleum bulk storage systems that will maximize system efficiency, prevent surface and groundwater contamination, minimize environmental hazards, reduce safety hazards, and avoid practices that needlessly increase installation costs.
