You have posed some interesting questions concerning pipelines and the mish-mash of regulating authority. However, as of May 1, this year the particular instance of a petrochemical/processing industry using fuel storage tanks has a new regulator in Colorado i.e.  The Colorado Department of Labor.
An interesting sideline is now the apparent conflict of authority between Health and Labor as both can now claim jurisdiction over spills resulting and clean-up control.
In the link attached document, you can see in preliminary definitions and scope, pipelines to and from tanks are included.

Labor also has jurisdiction over pressure vessels and in-plant boilers and the pressure vessels include tanks over 120 gallons capacity and pressures over 15 psi.
