The Oil Control Program (OCP) requires that certain facilities with aboveground storage tanks (ASTs) are in compliance with State and federal regulations. Facilities storing oil in ASTs with aggregate capacities of 1,000 gallons of used oil or 10,000 gallons or more of virgin oil are required to have an oil operations permit (OOP) issued by the OCP. All regulated ASTs are required to have secondary containment, such as dikes. Other requirements for regulated ASTs can be found in COMAR 26.10.01. Caltha is available to assist in preparing plans. OOPs are also required for various types of transportation of oil into and within Maryland by truck.
Caltha LLP provides technical support to facilities in Maryland that are subject to AST rules and require an oil operations permit.
