Engelhardt, J. et al. undant AST regulations require thorough monitoring by facility operator. Oil and Gas Journal, 3 June 2002, 100(22) pp.
New laws and regulations governing storage and transportation of liquid petroleum often result from incidents so dramatic they draw the attention of the general public. This has been especially true in the US; the Exxon Valdez oil spill in 1989 resulted in the 1990 Oil Pollution Act on the federal level and other more stringent laws and regulations in some individual states. The result, especially in the past 15 years, is a patchwork of federal and state regulations and oversight bodies. The regulatory scene for terminal operators is complex and intertwined with contradictions, overlaps, interpretations, and often confusion.
