and/or pipeline transmission systems. A tank gauging system is a very cost effective and accurate solution compared to flow metering systems, especially when high flow rates are present and large quantities are transferred. When flow measuring systems are used, however, the tank gauging system offers a perfect verification tool.

Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S ) Safety Procedures
zone concentrations to below 10 ppm averaged over 8 hours, or 20 ppm for a maximum of 15 minutes, individuals shall be required to wear appropriate respiratory protection. A good rule of thumb to follow would be to automatically mask up for gauging those tanks that have H. 2. S levels in excess of 20 ppm.
43 CFR § 3174.6 Oil measurement by tank gauging
(a) The procedures for oil measurement by tank gauging must comply with the requirements outlined in this section. (b) The operator must follow the procedures identified in API 18.1 or API 18.2 (both incorporated by reference, see § 3174.3 ) as further specified in this paragraph to determine the quality and quantity of oil measured under field conditions at an FMP .

Automatic Tank Gauging. One of the solutions in the tank zone is automatic tank gauging. While API has a standard (MPMS Ch. ) for automatic tank gauging for custody transfer measurements, this standard was designed for large storage tanks, and its requirements are uneconomical for small lease tanks. API Ch. 18.2 addresses the unique requirements of small lease tanks in many onshore

vapors. This study found that most workers gauging tanks (15 of 17; 88.2%) had benzene exposures exceeding the NIOSH recommended exposure limit (REL) of 0.1 parts per million (ppm) as a time weighted average (TWA) for a full shift. Some exposures also exceeded the NIOSH short term exposure limit of 1 ppm as a 15 minute average for benzene.
