Testing Services

Tank and Line Tightness Testing: Including volumetric and non-volumetric testing of USTs, ASTs, and product piping. Electronic/Mechanical Leak Detector Testing ensures the equipment is functioning properly and meets the testing requirement for automatic line leak detectors. CGRS performs calibrated-leak simulations to verify positive shut down or flow restriction.

Cathodic Protection (CP) System Testing: Our NACE certified Corrosion Testers inspect both impressed current and galvanic systems. They ensure these systems provide adequate corrosion protection to all metal portions of the fueling system which come in contact with the ground and that routinely contain product.

Secondary Containment Tank Testing: Tank testing is currently required in California to meet SB 989 requirements which includes testing of UST annular space, secondary containment piping, under-dispenser containment, turbine sumps and over-spill buckets.

Fuel Maintenance Program: This is effective on fuel stored for long periods of time as with backup generator systems. This service includes fuel sampling, analysis and possible implementation of an additive program to prevent repolymerization.

Electronic/Mechanical Leak Detector Testing: CGRS performs calibrated leak simulations to verify positive shut down or flow restrictions to ensure equipment is  functioning properly and to meet testing requirements for automatic line leak detectors.

NESHAP: National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (subpart CCCCCC) establishes national emission limitations and management practices for hazardous air pollutants (HAP) emitted from the loading of gasoline storage tanks at gasoline-dispensing facilities. This subpart also establishes requirements to demonstrate compliance with the emission limitations and management practices.

Inspection Services:

AST and UST Tank Inspection Services: Our inspectors are certified by the American Petroleum Institute. This service includes ultrasonic testing and an internal/external tank inspection.

Equipment Survey and Facility Inspections: The purpose of this service is to document the current facility conditions, equipment, and compliance status. It is useful in property transactions or as a facility management tool.

STI SP001 Tank Inspections: State and federal requirements mandate periodic testing and/or inspection of above-ground storage tanks. STI SP001 Inspection requirements and frequency depend on a number of factors including tank size, tank age and the tank construction standard. Your Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) plan may also indicate an inspection frequency.

CGRS has Steel Tank Institute (STI) certified inspectors on staff to inspect your shop fabricated aboveground storage tanks to the SP001 Standard. We can also perform tightness testing on aboveground tanks using Tracer Tight® or other manufacturer approved methods. Some states require testing after installation and prior to putting the AST into service. CGRS can provide these services as well.

Our staff will help you manage your aboveground storage tank systems—SPCC plans, testing and inspection, removal, installation and repairs. And if you’re just not sure what you need at this point, give us a call. We’ll help sort it out.

Fuel Quality Services

CGRS has teamed with Universal Fuel Services to provide complete tank cleaning and fuel polishing services for all fuel types including gasoline products and diesel.

Water, particulate and biological contamination are removed from the fuel.
Biocide and fuel conditioners are added as necessary.

Problems with water and degraded fuel in underground tanks can be a costly nightmare for fuel retailers and commercial fuel users.

We provide a comprehensive solution for removing water from fuel reserves, as well as a complete tank cleaning and fuel restoration service to ensure premium fuel quality at all times.

Flowline Testing and Leak Detection

Flowline Pressure Testing and Integrity Management Program: In Colorado and surrounding Rocky Mountain States flowlines are required to be pressure tested before initial operation, after a repair, and on an annual basis. With over 25 years of flowline testing experience, CGRS is able to provide you with a flowline integrity management program that will keep your facilities safe and current  with applicable regulations.

Flowline Helium Leak Locate: Difficult decisions need to be made when a flowline test indicates a leak. In addition to handling regulatory implications, CGRS is able to offer a cost-effective solution that provides an alternative to excavating long stretches of flowline in order to find and repair the leak. CGRS is able to utilize our patented helium leak locate technology to pinpoint the leak and avoid spending the time, money, and effort with conventional methods or deciding to shut in the well indefinitely. As one of your operations partners, CGRS can pinpoint the leak to get the well and flowline back into operation.

Operator Training

CGRS is offering small classroom settings for owner/operators to receive their Class A/B Operator Certification.
