Current codes and standards do not address many of the structures found in the petrochemical industry. A task committee was established because of a significant interest in the petrochemical industry in dealing with environmental issues and in interpreting and complying with government environmental standards. The purpose of this task committee report is to help provide some uniformity to the current mix of internal and published criteria, and provide guidance in design of secondary containments. Though the makeup of the committee and the writing of this document are directed at petrochemical facilities, these guidelines are applicable to similar design structures in other industries.
