Resumo


Fuels, when improperly stored or misused, may cause grave environmental and physical risks and as the fuels stations present characteristics of potentially polluting enterprises and environmental accidents generators, this work presents a diagnosis of the situation of the fuels stations of Belém, Pará State, by sample, related to the system of installation and storage of petroleum derivatives and other fuels, their main failing which cause impacts over the environment due to leakage, safety devices, equipment that avoid and/or restrain the main impacts like superficial and subterranean waters contamination, soil contamination and other risks: fire or explosion in accordance with the legislation and Brazilian specific rules.   The objective is to determine the main failures of the system of storage at fuels stations and the main impacts caused to environment due to leakage. The work was developed by using data collection and in loco observation of fifteen fuels stations in the Metropolitan Region of Belém, by choosing five fuels stations from each class, according to the NBR 13786, excluding the class 0. All the fuels stations which were observed were nonstandard, excepting one of the III class and other of the class 1. The present field work found that there are some stations that still do not meet the current norms; it is believed that this scenery may be modified sooner due to owners’ and companies efforts in conducting their parks modernization, as also as a more rigorous supervision by authorized bodies.
