Frequent Questions

Will pipelines have an exempt refiner defense if higher than standard sulfur is located in their systems?

The fuel sulfur level of a batch of fuel must conform to the way it is designated. If a pipeline has fuel that is designated as 500 ppm or 15 ppm sulfur, and it does not meet the designated level, then it is noncomplying. It is not a defense to claim the fuel should have been designated otherwise by an upstream party.
