Request a Public Meeting with Murphy and LDEQ

Murphy Oil Meraux Refinery has applied for an expedited permit to replace
crude oil storage tanks in the tank farm at Judge Perez Drive. This proposed
General Initial Title V Permit will replace crude oil storage tanks with
both crude oil and middle distillates storage tanks.

According to Murphy Oil's LDEQ EDMS document 36418107 dated 11/15/2007,
"Results of extensive inspections performed by MOUSA showed that the
existing tanks...have settled and suffered damage over time, partially
attributed to Hurricane Katrina." Residents have specific concerns and
questions regarding this settlement of tanks and in particular this area of
the tank farms.
