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.

This course went above my expectations from the moment I walked in the door. The instructor led us through two days packed with useful compliance information.
The instructor did an excellent job presenting a very dry subject; keeping everyone interested and making it enjoyable.

Lion was very extensive. There was a lot of things that were covered that were actually pertaining to what I do and work with. Great Job. I will be coming back in three years!
