Risk management of fuel tank and oil pipeline leaks
Fuel tank and pipework leaks
Fuel tanks and oil pipelines – as utilised in oil depots, fuel retail stations, tank farms, home heating oil and in industry – have the potential to leak.
Pollution from these leaks can become widespread and pose a risk to the environment and human health. Reactive remediation to address these can be costly and disruptive.
Risk management: Pro-active, preventative treatment
PetroFix® can be applied during installation of fuel infrastructure e.g. following a previous leak and remediation project, or during scheduled replacement of pipelines and underground storage tanks.
This pre-application prevents contamination of clean backfill and reduces the risk and spread of future pollution events. Preventative treatment costs will be low and provide savings by avoiding/reducing the scale of any remedial works needed.
PetroFix is a liquid form of activated carbon and so can provide unequalled coverage and coating of bedding materials. It spreads easily, is non-toxic and safe to handle and apply.
PetroFix preventative treatment locations:
Excavations walls and bases
Underground storage tank (UST) bases and fill
Injection into wells
Direct push injection
Percolation into bedding
