Risk Management of Fuel Tank and Pipeline Leaks

Fuel tanks and pipelines – as utilized 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.

Fuel Tank and Pipework Leaks

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.

Remediation: Expanding Options

For older sites with residual contamination, PetroFix also can be a valuable remedial tool to target hard to reach residual contamination within tank basins and in infrastructure corridors.
