Perceptive Sensors (PST) has announced that Earl Crochet (AKA -The Tank Whisperer) has joined its Houston team as the director of strategic business development for the oil and gas group.

Crochet joins PST from Kinder Morgan where he was the director of engineering and started his career at Plantation Pipeline for a combined career that spans 30+ years under the KM umbrella.

As the former chairman of ILTA and a sitting member on several API committees, he will continue his efforts to improve operational efficiency and environmental stewardship.

In 2020, Crochet was the co-chair and a contributing author to API 2350’s latest edition on Overfill Prevention for Storage Tanks.

He was also the inspiration behind PTI’s Tank Level Alarm unit known as the “EC1000” which builds on API2350 and has already given a new level of safety to petrochemical facilities.

PST said he will “continue to innovate” with PST on new applications related to safety and operation issues using PST’s digital technology to produce real-time actionable information for the petroleum industry.
