If petroleum storage and dispensing is critical to your company, it may be time to evaluate your existing fuel system.
Like most product markets, fuel systems have evolved over the years. Many storage tanks were installed 20 to 30 years ago, and longer. The installing contractor may or may not still be in business, and the system installation may or may not have been installed correctly. Due to extensive petroleum leaks in the industry, the regulatory community continues to revise regulations and implement new ones. How old is your system?
Full system replacements can be accomplished safely and successfully by reviewing throughput, site plan footprint, system desires, budget, and compliant required features. The life of a fuel system can be directly affected by the installation practices of the contractor. Make sure the installation contractor has current certifications and follows all industry standards and manufacturer’s installation guidelines. Cheap prices may look attractive initially, however, shortened product life and premature component failure exposes you to repetitive replacement costs, petroleum releases, and potential compliance violations.
An old deteriorating fuel system will leave you exposed to possible petroleum releases into the environment and potential compliance violations with state or federal regulatory agencies.
