The information is invaluable in documenting the movement of petroleum products out of Valdez, Alaska. Without the information furnished on the ENG Form 3926 at least 50,000,000 tons of petroleum products would got unreported each year. This situation exists because there are many vessel operating companies moving crude petroleum from Valdez to points south.Start Signature
