Petroleum - Retail & Distribution

Buying, selling or redeveloping a gas station? We can help (we even have a free offer)!

ECS understands that running any business is difficult enough. The petroleum retail and distribution business, however, involves the complexities of a retail store coupled with the added burden of environmental regulations.

Petroleum retail and distribution managers juggle employee and payroll issues, fuel and merchandise inventory, and pricing. Environmental compliance is a necessity to protect assets, avoid Notices of Violation and fines, and reduce negative impacts to the bottom line. Environmental compliance is also an integral part of maintaining eligibility for tank insurance and state trust fund monies.

ECS acts as a trusted partner to take the weight of environmental compliance off of petroleum retail and distribution managers.   We view this process as asset protection that consists of valuation, loss prevention and value recovery. The services we provide under these three categories include:
