Crude Oil Specifications
Continental Refining Company will not accept crude oil containing halogenated, chlorinated or oxygenated organic compounds (such as but not limited to Carbon Tetrachloride, 1, 1 Dichloroethane, Trichloroethane or Tetrachloroethane, Isopropyl Alcohol, Ethyl Alcohol, Methanol, Glycol, Acetone). These and like compounds may cause severe equipment damage in the refinery.
Contamination usually occurs when a producer uses one of these chemicals in treating wells, flow lines and lease tankage to remove paraffin buildup. A small volume of crude contaminated with oxygenated or halogenated compounds can render large volumes of crude almost valueless. Any seller delivering crude oil to Continental Refining Company containing such contaminant will be held liable for all damages resulting from that delivery.
