An imagery interpretation key of the petroleum industry was developed for use with an aerial surveillance spill prevention system. Aerial baseline and stereogram photographs as well as aerial multiband, aerial oblique, and ground photographs of oil refineries were obtained for inclusion in the key. Processing systems to convert crude oil to fuel and LPG, gasoline, heavy fuel oils, lubricating oils and asphalt were identified with the help of military oil refinery interpretation keys. Three petrochemical facilities within the refinery were also located and identified. The identification of potential spill sources as related to processing systems, product storage and disposition of by-products and waste was performed.
