Fees and Costs

Your ERAP participation fees are based on your company's volume of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) sales and volume of flammable liquids transported by rail, and geographic area of business. These fees are prorated to the overall costs of our annual operations.

If your company is involved in an incident and your emergency response plan is implemented, you must also pay your share of all ERAC costs upon being invoiced. Typically, these costs include our fees for personnel and equipment as well as their personal expenses.
