Released with Bulletin 2021-24.

This directive identifies requirements for the storage of materials produced, generated (including wastes), or used by the upstream petroleum industry 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 sites to be reclaimed to conditions suitable for the next intended land use.
