LAXFuel Corporation is a consortium composed of the airlines operating at LAX that provides jet fuel for the planes at the airport and leases land at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
The creation of LAXFUEL Corp. was a breakthrough in LAX history because it enabled the airlines to import jet fuel to the West Coast for the first time. It also let airlines take advantage of bonded fuel, which eliminated the import duty on international flights out of LAX.
Due to the expansion of LAX and the resulting increase in airport operations, LAXFuel is currently expanding its onsite fuel tanks by adding four new 60,000 barrels (bbl) nominal capacity tanks, which equates to approximately 217,000 bbl or 9,100,000 gallons of usable storage capacity for the entire facility.
Global ASR prepared the Environmental Sensitivity Analysis that helped Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) determine which level of California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) document is needed for additional tanks at the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) Fuel Storage Facility.
