New association aids oil handlers

Companies involved in the storage and handling of oil have a new business association: the Alaska Fuel Storage and Handling Alliance, according to Petroleum News. Jim Beckham, president and a founder, said that the association will provide small, regulated companies with the capability to mount education and advocacy programs. Small businesses, including many in rural Alaska, do not have the individual capacity to operate these types of programs, Beckham said:

"Together they will be able to study issues, form positions and effectively present them to the Legislature, Congress or regulatory bodies. They will be able to speak with one voice that will have a greater impact on decision-makers." For more information, contact Beckham at 1-907-224-3190, or Bill Schoephoester at 1-907-351-3097 or e-mail .
