Abstract:

National policy has dictated that large reserves of petroleum be stored in order to diminish U.S. vulnerability to the effects of a severe petroleum supply interruption. To ensure that products being considered for storage would be of a quality immediately usable and to identify likely quality assurance procedures, an investigation program was undertaken. The first task under this program was to review and assess the state-of-the-art in petroleum crude and product storage. Through literature review, questionnaires, and personal contacts, considerable information was identified for use in programs relating to the effect of storage on the quality of finished petroleum products. As a result of this task, it has been determined that underground storage of refined distillate products can be accomplished with proper selection of products to be stored, through specification requirements, quality controlsurveillance, and judicious use of additives.
