Protection of the environment is central to Petrolink’s method of operations. We are constantly vigillant and work to an Environmental Protection Plan that uses methods, materials and equipment proven to be environmentally sound.
Petrolink’s Environmental Division offers a comprehensive service to owner/operators of petrochemical storage systems including Environmental Protection Planning, Site investigation, Remediation Action and Validation, Ground Water Monitor Well installation and ongoing monitoring. A complete cradle to grave service.
We work in an industry that can be responsible for extremely damaging pollution that poses a threat to humans and the natural environment. Petrolink takes a proactive approach by working with clients to avoid pollution in the first instance by recommending and using environmentally safe equipment and procedures.
Recent Legislation requires the installation and monitoring of Ground Water Wells wherever underground storage systems are in use. Petrolink’s Environmental Division offers design, licencing, installation and ongoing monitoring of GWMW’s.
Our Environmental Obligations
A matrix of regulations and hazards are considered in Petrolink’s environmental services. Businesses and individuals are held accountable for polluting the environment and significant penalties can be incurred.
Petrochemical sites in Australia all need to adhere to:
- Codes of Practice
- Australian Standards
- Industry Best Practices
- Local council SREPs
Environmental responsibilities were often ignored in the past. Now, many stakeholder groups monitor your business’ environmental and safety obligations.
The following stakeholders have a vested interest in your environmental operations.
- Department of Environment Climate Change and Water
- (DECCW, formerly the Environmental Protection Agency and now the OEH)
- Comcare, WorkCover (NSW), WorkSafe (VIC) and all State work-safety agencies
- Local councils
Further government agencies and community groups are included ad hoc.
Every site is different.
Years of specific experience place Petrolink in a unique position to handle your complex needs.
