"This guide is intended for facilities that transfer oil products to or from tanker trucks, marine vessels, railcars, and pipelines. All facilities that refine, store and distribute oil conduct transfer operations. Some transfer products in high frequencies and volumes, such as pipeline transfer/terminal facilities, marine terminals, refinery marketing facilities, railyards, home heating oil and lubricating oil distributors, and others involved in the distribution of refined product. This guide discusses the equipment and operating practices needed to meet the requirements of the Oil Pollution Prevention Regulation in Title 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 112, which includes the Spill Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) Plan requirements and the Facility Response Plan (FRP) requirements. The SPCC requirements are the focus of this guide; other guides are available for facility response planning requirements (40 CFR 112.20 and 112.21) and general information on the Oil Pollution Prevention Regulation."--Overview.
