ILTA president lauds EPA for final rule on in-service tank inspections

Kathryn Clay, president of the International Liquid Terminals Association, has commended the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for taking final action to allow added flexibility to terminal operators while ensuring high-quality liquid tank inspection.

Clay said: “ILTA appreciates EPA’s efforts to finalise this rule that allows the use of modern tank inspections methods to find and correct air pollution leaks at large liquid storage tanks. This final action is a win-win for both the environment and the industry.

“The EPA rule […] is a common-sense solution that will lower emissions, ensure safety and provide operators with increased regulatory flexibility. By allowing greater use of a well-established, safe and effective inspection method, this new policy is a meaningful contribution to our shared goal of environmentally responsible facility management.

“ILTA and its members applaud EPA’s willingness to address an issue that became especially challenging over the past year due to the pandemic-related imbalances in petroleum and fuels markets that constrained the storage sector.”
