PHMSA Extends Comment Period for Crude Oil Volatility Proposal
The public comment period for this ANPRM was set to end on March 20—but has now been extended for an additional 60 days, in part due to requests from major industry stakeholders including the American Petroleum Institute. Comments on this potential crude oil rulemaking are now due before May 19, 2017.
Read the announcement of the comment period extension in today’s Federal Register.
EPA’s initial ANPRM and request for comments on its crude oil volatility rulemaking lists a whopping 39 questions for industry to answer regarding the perceived safety benefits and difficulties of compliance with a vapor pressure limit.

I will never go anywhere, but to Lion Technology.
Lion's online training is more comprehensive, has better slides, and is a superior training experience than what I would get from other trainers.

The instructor created a great learning environment.

Lion courses are the standard to which all other workshops should strive for!

I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.
I can't say enough how pleased I was with this course! Everything finally makes sense.
These are the best classes I attend each year. I always take something away and implement improvements at my sites.
The instructor took a rather drab set of topics and brought them to life with realistic real-life examples.
I have attended other training providers, but Lion is best. Lion is king of the hazmat jungle!!!

More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
