Frequent Questions

The batch report requires reporting the volume percent for six oxygenates -methanol, MTBE, ethanol, ETBE, TAME and t-butanol. If a refiner or oxygenate blender uses MTBE or ethanol as an oxygenate, and does not include in its calculation of oxygen weight

Trace amounts of oxygenates that may be present in MTBE or ethanol do not have to be reported. However, where a refiner reports total oxygen weight percent that includes MTBE or ethanol plus other oxygenates in larger than trace amounts, the volume percent of each of the other oxygenate should be included on the batch report.
