Hull developed an initial Site Remediation – Maximum Achievable Control Technology (SR-MACT) Soil Sampling and Analysis Plan for an active Oil Refinery.
The Sampling and Analysis Plan (SAP) described sampling and analytical protocols to be followed in the refinery while sampling Petroleum Contaminated Soils (PCS) in-situ, or excavated soils that were stored in soil piles or in roll off boxes. The Refinery intended to use the initial SR-MACT Soil SAP to gather data for soils contaminated with a variety of materials. Most crude oils, intermediates, and finished fuels contain HAPs to some extent.
The data collected would help the Refinery gain an understanding of the HAP content in remediation materials contaminated with those raw materials, intermediates, and fuels. With this knowledge, the Refinery could ultimately develop rules of thumb for HAP estimation standard operation procedures (SOP) for use throughout the refinery.
