Attention is drawn to problems resulting from main pipelines which are shut down and left in the ground. Consideration is given to the ecological effects of leaving the pipeline intact in the ground, or removing and scrapping it. The emission of hydrocarbon vapours from a floating-roof tank has also been investigated, a quantitative analysis was made of evaporation from tanks of equal capacity but equipped with various seals applied between the floating roof and the shell. The results are presented and discussed.
