Oil and Gas

The oil and gas industry supplies more than 60% of the nation’s energy, from fueling cars to heating homes and igniting stovetops. While our society relies heavily on oil and gas for day-to-day conveniences, the industry faces struggles when it comes to mitigating the potential for hazardous spills and enacting the appropriate stormwater management protocol. Refineries, retailers and other oil and gas facilities have to tackle these concerns. If they don’t, they’ll have to deal with consequences for non-compliance to SPCC, EPA and state regulations. Allow us to help you deal with these difficulties. Industrial facilities are targets for inspection by local, state, and federal governing agencies making your facility to be held to a higher level of scrutiny. CF-S’s highly experienced team is here to help you face these difficulties with certainty and 100% compliance.

If your facility has an Oil Water Separator (OWS), we can show you how you can cut the costly servicing of this critical tool in half and bring about much needed awareness to your facility operations. Not many Safety products can lay claim to reducing annual maintenance cost, CF-S products can and will free up operations around your facility to utilize more of your operations than ever before.

Hazardous Chemicals in the Oil and Gas Industry

Although petroleum is used in everyday life, the product itself is toxic and can be detrimental if released into our precious water systems. From development and production to transportation and retail, the oil and gas industry handles hazardous substances that pose many environmental risks in the event of a spill. In fact, it can take just one gallon of oil to contaminate one million gallons of water. Some of these environmentally hazardous wastes include:

  • Ethylbenzene
  • Xylenes
  • Polycyclic aromic hydrocarbons
  • Volatil organic compounds
  • Heavy metals
  • Petroleum by-products

The above chemicals and other materials found in the oil and gas industry can quickly deter environmental safety and bring about hefty fines related to non-compliance. So it’s of the utmost importance to contain spills and hazardous stormwater to ensure your operation’s compliance. That’s where Containment & Filtration Solutions can help.
