Title

Strategic Petroleum Reserve Modernization Act of 2009

Official Title

A bill to amend the Energy Policy and Conservation Act to create a petroleum product reserve, and for other purposes.

Summary

Strategic Petroleum Reserve Modernization Act of 2009 - Amends the Energy Policy and Conservation Act to require that the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) contain at least 30 million barrels of refined petroleum products. Directs the Secretary of Energy to submit to the President and, if the President approves, to Congress, a plan for inclusion of such products in the SPR. Prohibits drawdown and sale of SPR petroleum products unless the Secretary determines that: (1) the drawdown and sale are required by a severe energy market supply interruption or U.S. obligations under the international energy program; or (2) a sale of refined petroleum products will mitigate the impacts of weather-related or other natural events that have resulted in a severe energy market disruption.
