§ 2541. Definitions.
Unless the context otherwise requires, the following definitions shall govern the construction of this article:
(g) “Indirect operations” means involvement in on-site activities, such as new construction, in a capacity that indirectly involves the risk of an oil spill to waters of the state due to potential impacts to nearby oil-handling operations (e.g., operating digging equipment next to an active oil transfer pipeline).
(j) “Marine terminal” means a facility other than a vessel, located on or adjacent to marine waters in California, used for transferring oil to or from tank vessels or barges. The term references all parts of the facility including, but not limited to, structures, equipment and appurtenances thereto used or capable of being used to transfer oil to or from tank vessels or barges. For the purpose of these regulations, a marine terminal includes all piping not integrally connected to a tank facility.
(k) “Maximum extent practicable” means the highest level of effectiveness that can be achieved through the use of terminal personnel and best achievable technology. In determining what is the maximum extent practicable, the Division shall consider, at a minimum, the effectiveness, engineering feasibility, commercial availability, safety, and the cost of the measures.
(m) “Oil” means any kind of petroleum, liquid hydrocarbons, or petroleum products or any fraction or residues therefrom, including, but not limited to, crude oil, bunker fuel, gasoline, diesel fuel, aviation fuel, oil sludge, oil refuse, oil mixed with waste, and liquid distillates from unprocessed natural gas.
(p) “Operations” means direct involvement in the transfer, storage, handling, or monitoring of oil at a terminal in a capacity that involves the risk of an oil spill to waters of the state. This functional group includes but is not limited to the Terminal person in charge, storage tank operators, pipeline operators, and oil transfer monitors.
(q) “Operator” when used in connection with vessels, marine terminals, pipelines, or facilities, means any person or entity which owns, has an ownership interest in, charters, leases, rents, operates, participates in the operation of or uses that vessel, terminal, pipeline, or facility. “Operator” does not include any entity which owns the land underlying the terminal or the terminal itself, where the entity is not involved in the operations of the terminal.
(u) “Tank facility” means any one or combination of above ground storage tanks, including any piping which is integral to the tank, which contains crude oil or its fractions and which is used by a single business entity at a single location or site. A pipe is integrally related to an above ground storage tank if the pipe is connected to the tank and meets any of the following:
