Role of Petroleum Storage

  • Petroleum storage plays a critical part in the Mobile area’s economic prosperity and in the growing trade at the Port of Mobile. It is a vital component of the energy logistics chain that feeds much of our manufacturing and transportation industries and is vital to employment and the overall health of our regional economy.
