The PEI Tank Closure Committee developed Recommended Practices for the Closure of Underground Storage Tank and Shop-Fabricated Aboveground Storage Tank Systems (PEI/RP1700-18).

The Petroleum Equipment Institute (PEI) produced the document as an industry service in response to requests for a single authoritative source of information from underground storage tank (UST) and aboveground storage tank (AST) system owners/operators, tank and pump contractors, consultants, engineers, the safety industry, regulators and other individuals.

The purpose of the document is to provide consistent recommended practices for the safe closure of UST and shop-fabricated AST systems used to store petroleum products. It provides a summary of general guidelines for the decommissioning, removal, closure in place, storage, transportation and off-site disposal of USTs and shop-fabricated ASTs that have contained petroleum products.

View the RP1700 table of contents.

The recommended practices apply to facilities that are equipped with regulated or nonregulated USTs and shop-fabricated ASTs, associated piping, diking and spill containment, and equipment intended to operate a system that contains petroleum products.

Single-copy price is $75 for PEI members; $295 for nonmembers.
