Our safety approach starts with quality control and assurance. All our sites have a testing lab on site. We test the oil for hydrogen sulphide (H2S), flash point and basic sediment and water (BSW).
Every truck load that comes into our terminal is tested for H2S. If the load exceeds our customer’s specifications for H2S, the load is rejected. Our Field Service Delivery teams ensures these rules and specifications are strictly followed.
We also check the incoming oil and regularly test our tanks for flash point. This is important as many destination terminals are not equipped to handle low flash point oil. In addition, understanding the flash point of the oil is a regulatory requirement for properly classify the oil before it is shipped on rail.
Although it is not dangerous to have water in the oil, we test the BS&W of the incoming oil to ensure it meets our customer’s specifications.
Our Field Service Delivery Team ensures the oil meets your quality specifications and it is safe to move through the entire system and supply chain.
