Oil & Gas

Solution – Directive 055 AER – Storage Requirements for the Upstream Petroleum Industry

The Alberta Energy Regulator Directive 055 inspections of primary and secondary containment systems, originally introduced in 1995, provides guidance in relation to the construction and maintenance of above ground storage tanks for the upstream oil and gas industry. Directive 055 covers well sites, gas batteries, oil and bitumen batteries, treating plants, compressor stations, straddle plants, gas processing facilities, pump stations, tanks farms, oil loading and unloading facilities, and oilfield waste facilities.

With the recent focus on overfill prevention, operators are encouraged to search for cost effective solutions to satisfy their level measurement and monitoring needs. Read Directive 055 to learn about the latest requirements and regulations in the oil & gas industry.


Actionable Intelligence for Storage Compliance

DeviceLynk collects and stores data from all holding tank sensors points, transmitting and storing it safely and securely. This data is automatically turned into ‘Actionable Intelligence’ dashboards, displaying real-time and historical trends, and generating reports to satisfy internal and external auditors. Maintenance staff receives alerts and/or alarms by SMS or e-mail for equipment that requires their attention, and can quickly log on from any web-browser to check severity and plan their route. DeviceLynk also lets you create a maintenance note, tagged to a specific area or piece of equipment, and upload images from your mobile device when at site. With built-in data historization, DeviceLynk can help you maintain compliance in keeping records for a minimum of 5 years.

Use DeviceLynk’s Directive 055 Application to monitor all of your remote assets, reduce environmental impact, and quickly achieve your companies’ Directive 055 responsibilities.
