Operator will have an MLVT Design Package, certified and sealed by a licensed professional engineer, which is on file in their office and available upon request. The site shall be prepared in accordance with the specifications of the design package prior to tank installation; including ensuring that proper compaction requirements have been met. The MLVT will be at least 75 feet from a wellhead, fired vessel, heater-treater, or a compressor with a rating of 200 horsepower or more. It will be placed at least 50 feet from a separator, well test unit, or other non-fired equipment. All liner seams will be welded and tested in accordance with applicable ASTM international standards. Operator will be present during initial filling of the MLVT and the contractor will supervise and inspect the MLVT for leaks during filling. Operator will comply with the testing and re-inspection requirements and associated written standard operating procedures (SOP) listed on the design package. Signs will be posted on the MLVT indicating that the contents are freshwater. The MLVT will be operated with a minimum of 1 foot of freeboard at all times. Access to the MLVT will be limited to operational personnel and authorized regulatory agency personnel. Operator or contractor will conduct daily visual inspections of the exterior wall and surrounding area for integrity deficiencies. Operator will have a contingency plan/emergency response plan associated with the MLVT and it is on file at their office. A fabric reinforced liner will be utilized. In the event that a tank breach were to occur, the fabric reinforced liner will prevent a “zippering” failure from occurring. The liner will meet the specifications per the design package. Operator acknowledges and will comply with the Colorado Oil & Gas Conservation Commission Policy on the Use of Modular Large Volume Tanks in Colorado dated June 13, 2014.
