GCE Group’s Director for Science co-authored UNECE’s Safety Guidelines and Good Industry Practices For Oil Terminals

07.09.2015

A unique document – Safety Guidelines and Good Industry Practices for Oil Terminals will be published in October 2015 under editorship of the UNECE Convention on Transboundary Effects of Industrial Accidents.

March 2012: an international work group unifying top experts was formed under the UNECE Convention to develop safety guidelines for oil terminals. GCE’s Director for Science, Alexey Isakov became one of the aforesaid members and co-authors of the Guideline. UNECE also issued a gratitude letter to thank GCE Group President, Alexander Moskalenko for his contribution into the process.

The Guideline cumulates safe operational practices with regard to the lifecycle of oil terminals. The mentioned practices are emergency prevention and response measures that will help to reduce harmful effects for health and the environment in case of an industrial accident.

The Guideline was developed considering data provided by national agencies, operators of oil terminals, financial institutions and non-governmental companies. Safety practices included into the Guideline are based on experience and lessons learnt from large-scale accidents. Consequently, it promotes generally accepted and experience-based measures that comply with international standards.
