Chapter 4 Physical Properties of Hydrocarbons Petroleum, or crude oil, is a naturally occurring oily, bituminous liquid composed of various organic chemicals. It is found in large quantities below the surface of the earth and is used as a fuel and as a raw material in the chemical industry. Modern industrial societies use it primarily to achieve a degree of mobility as a fuel for internal combustion and jet engines.

Surface drainage and safe removal of spilled or accumulated liquids is adequately provided. ) Liquid spills are immediately removed from the area through surface runoff, drains, area catch basins, sumps, sewers, dikes, curbing or remote impounding that does not expose other facilities to the hazard. ) High flash point, noncombustible or inert liquids and gases are utilized whenever possible. ). ) Common vulnerable leakage points are minimized, glass level gages, hose transfer systems, etc. ) Piping carrying hazardous materials is minimized where practical and where exposed, is afforded protection considered necessary.
