Tottal was founded by two partners, Daniel Valdizan and Ruben Lopez with the idea of providing the best, most accurate and reliable tank testing and inspection services to the Peruvian market. Valdizan and Lopez bring to Tottal years of experience in the oil industry, including roles in upstream, downstream, and regulatory segments.
According to Ignacio Allende, Tanknology’s Vice President of International Operations, “The timing for this partnership is fantastic. The country of Peru has nearly 4,000 gas stations, and while environmental regulations have been in place for some time, enforcement efforts have just begun this year. The Peruvian market is starting to demand excellent compliance services, which Tottal and Tanknology can offer together.”
Allende noted that Tottal will offer Tanknology’s patented VacuTect tank test, as well as line and leak detection test methods available exclusively from Tanknology and its international licensees. “The addition of Tanknology’s VacuTect tank testing method will provide a significant competitive advantage for Tottal,” Allende said, “eliminating the need for unnecessary or extra fuel deliveries will save tank operators considerable time and money.”
