Forecourt expectations

The recently updated Blue Book produced by the Association for Petroleum and Explosives Administration (APEA) and Service Station Panel of The Energy Institute (EI), states that it will be a fundamental expectation of any forecourt operator with single-skin pipes or tanks to implement wetstock management going forward reports Suresite.

Anticipating the new regulations Suresite, which works alongside partners Leighton O’Brien, has introduced a practical system which provides effective monitoring and peace of mind for operators to help manage alarms, fuel levels and compliance.

“In a very positive sense, the standard of wetstock management is being pushed up like never before,” said Dan Gibson, Suresite’s wetstock manager.

“If you are an oil company or a fuel retailer and not monitoring smart alarms underpinned by true, accurate data, how do you really know if your gauges are reading correctly, or your pump flow has slowed and you’re giving away fuel?
“Forecourt operators should be mindful that expectations on them are increasing and the implications of non-conformance are potentially catastrophic.

Suresite will be on hand at UNITI Expo, the European trade show for the fuel retailing sector which takes place on May 15th-17th in Stuttgart.
