A remediation manual for the petroleum industry details strategies and practices for managing contaminant releases to soil and groundwater from refineries, terminals, gas stations, and exploration and production facilities.
AECOM remediation experts have co-authored the manual, Good Practice Guide for Management and Remediation of Sites in the Petroleum Industry, for the International Petroleum Industry Environmental Conservation Association (IPIECA).
AECOM is an integrated infrastructure and support services firm with an environmental practice serving the oil and gas industry and other clients.
IPIECA is the London-based oil and gas industry association for environmental and social issues, with membership covering half of the world’s oil production, and principal communication channel with the United Nations.
AECOM senior remediation and environmental engineers Chris Carleo and Kelly Hansel, working closely with experts from major oil and gas companies, co-authored the guide, which summarizes cleanup principles and approaches, provides a globally applicable risk-based framework for identifying and managing impacts and corrective actions, and aligns innovative and proven risk management and site remediation technologies with industry standards.
In July AECOM acquired another leading environmental firm URS.
