Directive 055: Storage Requirements for the Upstream Petroleum Industry
Release Date: September 01, 2022
Effective date: September 1, 2022
Replaces previous edition issued March 28, 2022
See section 1.3 of the directive for what’s new.
Purpose of this Directive
This directive identifies requirements for the storage of materials produced, generated (including wastes), or used by the upstream petroleum and geothermal resource development industries that, if released into the environment, may cause an adverse effect. The purpose is to prevent soil, groundwater, and surface water contamination. The implementation of appropriate storage practices should reduce the long-term costs associated with decontamination activities and make it easier for upstream petroleum and geothermal resource development sites to be reclaimed to conditions suitable for the next intended land use.
