Natural hazards in Petroleum industry

Petroleum refining is one of the largest industries in the United States and a vital part of the national economy. However, potential environmental hazards associated with refineries have caused increased concern for communities in close proximity to them.

Refineries are generally considered a major source of pollutants in areas where they are located and are regulated by a number of environmental laws related to air, land and water. Some of the regulations that affect the refining industry include the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Safe Drinking Water Act, CERCLA (i.e. Superfund: Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act), Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know (EPCRA), OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration), TSCA (Toxic Substances Control Act), Oil Pollution Act and Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure Plans.
