Register now for PIOGA storage tank and silica trainingPosted: July 1, 2017 2:21 pm
PIOGA’s Environmental Committee is pleased to host training in conjunction with Laurel Oil & Gas Corporation (a GZA GeoEnvironmental, Inc. owned company) on Aboveground Storage Tanks (ASTs), Secondary Containment for ASTs, Silica – Monitoring, Safety, the Regulations and You. It will take place July 27 at The Chadwick in Wexford.
Storage of oil, condensate and produced water in above ground storage tanks is common worldwide in our industry and an accepted practice. However, here in the Northeast, where we have to deal with “exceptional quality” or “high quality” waters, they can pose a huge liability if not inspected, repaired and contained within state-approved secondary containment.
Similarly, silica (frac sand) poses health hazards during loading and unloading at the terminal, “sand-silo storage” at your completion company’s yard and on your location during completion operations. Silicosis can be prevented by monitoring the areas of loading and unloading of silica and using proper PPE based on the monitoring results.
Attend this PIOGATech seminar to hear from industry experts on both of these very important subjects. Learn the regulations governing ASTs and the secondary containment necessary to satisfy state requirements. Also learn about monitoring the silica dust at your facility or well site and the protection necessary to keep your people safe.
