Bulk Storage Database Search

The Bulk Storage Program Database maintains the registrations of over 60,000 active and inactive bulk storage sites statewide*. The Bulk Storage Program includes three types of facilities; Petroleum Bulk Storage (PBS), Major Oil Storage Facilities(MOSF) and Chemical Bulk Storage (CBS).

All search results will return basic facility information including Site Number, Status, Expiration Date, Site Type, Site Name, Address, and County. For many facilities, information regarding storage tanks is also provided including location, status, installation or closure date, capacity, product stored, and tank/piping equipment specifications.

For some facilities only basic facility information is provided because the Department has determined that releasing additional information could endanger the life or safety of persons or the security of critical infrastructure (Public Officers Law Sections 86.5, 87.2(f), 89.5(a)(1)(1-a)).


There are two ways to search the database: by Bulk Storage Program or by other search criteria.   Entering a Site Number will provide the full record for one Facility.   Entering other search criteria will provide a list of BSP Facilities that meet the criteria,  with partial information about each with links to additional information for each facility.

Search method #1: Enter a Site Number & Program Type:


Search method #2:  Enter as many search criteria as are known (County must be specified).   Leave the site name, city, or street blank to obtain search results for all site names, cities, or streets.   On the search results screen, click on a site number to access the full record for a given site.

Once a facility becomes unregulated, the Department no longer updates facility information  (e.g., facility (property) owner). For facilities that are not active, the search results for  the facility represent the information presented in the last registration/license application.
