Soil and Groundwater Remediation Guidelines for Methanol
Methanol is an industrial chemical with a wide range of uses as a chemical feedstock, solvent and fuel. It is also used in the upstream oil and gas industry for hydrate inhibition in natural gas
production and transport, removal of acid gasses, as a dehydration agent, in the recovery of heavy hydrocarbons, and in the pressure testing of pipelines and pressure vessels in cold
temperatures. This document develops proposed soil and groundwater remediation guidelines consistent with
the Alberta Environment Tier I Soil and Groundwater (AENV, 2009a) framework.
