eNVIRONMENT & SAFETY

All Max Midstream facilities will meet or exceed all environmental, safety guidelines, American Petroleum Institute (API) recommendations, applicable regulatory standards, and accepted industry practices.

QUALITY ASSURANCE

To ensure quality control and offer segregated crude oil exports at its terminal in the Port, Max Midstream will be partnering with best in class organizations to assist in the design of its control rooms, conduct all testing and certification of the crude oil, and utilize proprietary methods for crude blends that domestic and international refiners require for their processes. Max Midstream will employ an inline testing methodology which will represent a first for Texas pipelines utilizing Topnir’ state-of-the-art technology. Max Midstream will be able to provide predictive assays in a very short timeframe while the product passes through the pipelines.
