Executive Summary

EXXONMOBIL BATON ROUGE CHEMICAL PLANT

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY



286 LDEQ FACILITY ID NUMBER





1. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE PREVENTION AND EMERGENCY RESPONSE POLICIES



Exxon modified its safety programs in 1991 by adopting structured safety management systems entitled, "Operations Integrity Management Systems (OIMS)." The OIMS structure has remained intact and effective following the merger of Exxon Corporation and Mobil Corporation.



The ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant utilizes a formal program of operations integrity to assure proper design, operation, maintenance, inspection, work permits, change management, and emergency response in a proactive effort to minimize risk to the public, environment, and the plant.





2. DESCRIPTION OF THE STATIONARY SOURCE AND REGULATED SUBSTANCES



The ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant employs approximately 1,030 employees who live and work in the Baton Rouge, LA area. In business at the same location since 1940, the company is a quality producer of industrial chemicals such as ethylene, propylene, and isopropyl alcohol. Our products are used around the world to make a variety of consumer products such as tubeless tires for automobiles, paint for our homes, and disposable diapers for babies.



Twenty-three (23) RMP-covered processes have been identified during the March 2016 RMP Update per the criteria in 40 CFR Part 68. These processes contain RMP-regulated flammable and toxic substances and a variety of regulated flammable mixtures in quantities triggering compliance with the RMP regulation.



The Diels-Alder Rctr. (DARLA) process unit has been out of service for over ten years. DARLA process unit has been removed from the 2016 submission.





3. HAZARD ASSESSMENT RESULTS



Hazard assessments for the Worst Case Scenarios (WCS) and Alternate Release Scenarios (ARS) for toxic substances were completed using EPA freeware RMP*Comp. This software produces outcomes same as those that could be obtained if a u
ser utilized the reference tables and equations from the U.S. EPA Off-site Consequence Analysis guidance. Hazard assessments for the WCS and ARS for flammable substances and mixtures were completed using the equations from the OCA Guidance. The equations were used because, compared to RMP*Comp, the equations allow refined distance estimates by taking into account actual composition of flammable mixture components and evaluation of evaporation rates for flammable materials that are liquids at normal atmospheric conditions.



4. GENERAL ACCIDENTAL RELEASE PREVENTION PROGRAM STEPS



The following is a summary of the general Accident Prevention Program in place at the ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant. EPA's Program 3 prevention requirements were implemented because some processes at the plant meet Program 3 criteria and are also subject to the OSHA Process Safety Management (PSM) standard. In addition, Exxon Corporation has implemented Operations Integrity Management Systems (OIMS) at each of its operations worldwide that includes the aspects of EPA's prevention program. OIMS has been attested as equivalent to ISO 14001 as a valid management system to oversee the implementation of the risk management activities.



Additional details are included in the Data Element Section of this RM Plan. Due to the ongoing nature of our safety program, the dates associated with the various activities in our Accident Prevention Program are constantly changing. To minimize rework, we selected February 1, 2016 as the date to begin collecting this information. Consequently, most of the reviews/updates conducted after that date may not be reflected in the data element information.





5. EMPLOYEE PARTICIPATION



The ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant encourages employees to participate in all facets of process safety management and accident prevention. Examples of employee participation range from updating and compiling operating and maintenance procedures to pa
rticipating as a member of a Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) team. Employees have access to all information created as part of the plant Accident Prevention Program. Specific ways that employees can be involved in the Accident Prevention Program are documented in an Employee Participation Plan that is maintained at the site and addresses each Accident Prevention Program element. In addition, the plant has a number of initiatives underway that address process safety and employee safety issues.





6. PROCESS SAFETY INFORMATION



The ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant keeps a variety of technical documents that are used to help maintain safe operation of the processes. These documents address chemical properties and associated hazards, limits for key process parameters and specific chemical inventories, and equipment design basis/configuration information. Specific groups within the plant are assigned responsibility for maintaining up-to-date process safety information. A table summarizing the reference documents and their location is readily available as part of the OIMS documentation to help employees locate any necessary process safety information. Most of this information is available electronically via a Document Management System (VAULT).



Chemical-specific information, including exposure hazards and emergency response/exposure treatment considerations, is provided in Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS). This information is supplemented by documents that specifically address known corrosion concerns and any known hazards associated with the inadvertent mixing of chemicals. For specific process areas, the plant has identified operating envelopes, i.e., documented safety related limits for specific process parameters such as temperature, level, and compositions. The plant ensures that the process is maintained within these limits using computerized process controls and monitoring instruments, highly trained personnel, and protective instrument syst
ems (e.g., automated shutdown systems, alarm systems).



The plant also maintains numerous technical documents that provide information about the design and construction of process equipment. This information includes materials of construction, design pressure and temperature ratings, electrical rating of equipment, etc. This information, in combination with written procedures and trained personnel, provides a basis for establishing inspection and maintenance activities, as well as for evaluating proposed process and facility changes to ensure that safety features in the process are not compromised.





7. PROCESS HAZARD ANALYSIS



The ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant has a comprehensive program to help ensure that hazards associated with the various processes are identified and controlled. Within this program, each process is systematically examined to identify hazards and ensure that adequate controls are in place to manage these hazards.



The ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant primarily uses the Knowledge Based Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) study that is an adaptation by ExxonMobil Research and Engineering and ExxonMobil Chemical Company of widely used industry methodologies to perform these evaluations. HAZOP analysis is recognized as one of the most systematic and thorough hazard evaluation techniques. The analyses are conducted using a team of people who have operating experience and engineering expertise on the process to be evaluated. This PHA team identifies and evaluates hazards of the process as well as accident prevention and mitigation measures, and makes suggestions for additional prevention and/or mitigation measures when appropriate.



The PHA team findings are forwarded to local management for resolution. Implementation of mitigation options in response to PHA findings is based on a relative risk evaluation done by the PHA team. These evaluations helps ensure that potential accident scenarios assigned greater risk receive at
tention first. All approved mitigation options being implemented in response to PHA team findings are tracked until they are complete. The resolution of each finding is documented and retained.



To ensure that the process controls and/or process hazards do not deviate significantly from the original design safety features, the ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant periodically updates and revalidates the hazard analysis results. These periodic reviews are conducted at least every five years for the life of the process. The results and findings from these updates are documented and retained. The team findings are forwarded to management for consideration and resolution of the findings is documented and retained.





8. OPERATING PROCEDURES AND SAFE WORK PRACTICES



The ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant maintains written procedures that address various modes of process operations, such as (1) startup, (2) shutdown, (3) normal, (4) emergency operations, and (5) special procedures. These procedures can be used as a reference by experienced operators and provide a consistent basis for training of new operators. The procedures are maintained current and accurate by revising them as necessary to reflect changes made through the management of change process. These procedures are periodically reviewed and annually certified as current and accurate.



The plant has identified operating envelopes, i.e., documented safety related limits for specific process parameters such as temperature, level, and compositions. This information, along with written operating procedures, is readily available to operators in the process unit and for other personnel to use as necessary to safely perform their job tasks. Operating procedures are also available in VAULT.



The ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant has long-standing safe work practices in place to help ensure worker and process safety. Examples of these include (1) control of the entry/presence/exit of support
personnel; (2) a lockout/tagout procedure to ensure isolation of energy sources for equipment undergoing maintenance; (3) a procedure for safe removal of hazardous materials before process piping or equipment is opened; (4) a permit and procedure to control spark producing activities (i.e., hot work); and (5) a permit and procedure to ensure that adequate precautions are in place before entry into a confined space. These procedures (and others), along with training of affected personnel, form a system to ensure that operations and maintenance activities are performed safely.





9. TRAINING



To complement the written procedures for process operations, the ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant has implemented a comprehensive training program for all employees involved in operating a process. New employees receive basic training in plant operations. After successfully completing this training, a new operator is paired with an experienced operator to learn process specific duties and tasks. After employees demonstrate (e.g., through tests, skills demonstration) having adequate knowledge to perform the duties and tasks in a safe manner on their own, they can work independently. In addition, all operations personnel periodically receive refresher training on the operating procedures to ensure that their skills and knowledge are maintained at an acceptable level. This refresher training is conducted at least every three years. All of this training is documented for each operator, including the means used to verify that the operator understood the training.





10. CONTRACTORS



The ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant uses contractors to supplement its workforce during periods of increased maintenance or construction activities. Because some contractors work on or near process equipment, the plant has procedures in place to ensure that contractors (1) perform their work in a safe manner; (2) have the appropriate knowledge and skills; (3) are aware of th
e hazards in their workplace; (4) understand what they should do in the event of an emergency; (5) understand and follow site safety rules; and (6) inform plant personnel of any hazards that they find during their work. This is accomplished by providing contractors with (1) a safety orientation; (2) information about safety and health hazards; (3) emergency response plan requirements; and (4) safe work practices prior to their beginning work. In addition, the ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant evaluates contractor safety programs and performance during the selection of a contractor. Plant personnel periodically monitor contractor performance to ensure that contractors are fulfilling their safety obligations.





11. PRE-STARTUP SAFETY REVIEWS (PSSRs)



The ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant conducts a PSSR for any new facility or facility modification that requires a change in the process safety information and, therefore, is controlled by Management of Change (MOC). The purpose of the PSSR is to ensure that safety features, procedures, personnel, and the equipment are appropriately prepared for startup prior to placing the equipment into service. This review provides one additional check to make sure construction is in accordance with the design specifications and that all-supporting systems are operationally ready. The PSSR review team uses checklists to verify all aspects of readiness. A PSSR involves field verification of the construction and serves as a quality assurance function by requiring verification that accident prevention requirements are properly implemented.





12. MECHANICAL INTEGRITY



The ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant has well established practices and procedures to maintain pressure vessels, piping systems, relief and vent systems, controls, pumps and compressors, and emergency shutdown systems in a safe operating condition. The basic aspects of this program include: (1) conducting training; (2) developing written pr
ocedures; (3) performing inspections and tests; (4) correcting identified deficiencies; and (5) applying quality assurance measures. In combination, these activities form a system that maintains the mechanical integrity of the process equipment.



Maintenance personnel receive training on (1) an overview of the process; (2) safety and health hazards; (3) applicable maintenance procedures; (4) emergency response plans; and (5) applicable safe work practices to help ensure that they can perform their job in a safe manner. Written procedures help ensure that work is performed in a consistent manner and provide a basis for training. Inspections and tests are performed to help ensure that equipment functions as intended, and to verify that equipment is within acceptable limits (e.g., adequate wall thickness for pressure vessels). If a deficiency is identified, employees will correct the deficiency before placing the equipment back into service (if possible) or a MOC team will review the use of the equipment and determine what actions are necessary to ensure the safe operation of the equipment.



Another integral part of the Mechanical Integrity Program is quality assurance. The ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant incorporates quality assurance measures into equipment purchases and repairs. This helps ensure that new equipment is suitable for its intended use and that proper materials and spare parts are used when repairs are made.





13. HOT WORK



The ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant has a Work Permit System in place to protect personnel, site facilities, and the surrounding community. The purpose of the Work Permit System is to ensure that jobs are planned, equipment is prepared, personnel are informed of hazards and procedures, precautions are taken, and work is executed in a manner to protect safety, health, and the environment. The Work Permit System covers hot work and other categories of work such as opening equipment, excavation, lifting, an
d confined spaces.





14. MANAGEMENT OF CHANGE



The ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant has a comprehensive system to manage changes to processes. This system requires that changes to items such as process equipment, chemicals, technology (including process operating conditions), procedures, and other facility changes be properly reviewed and authorized before being implemented. Changes are reviewed to (1) ensure that adequate controls are in place to manage any new hazards and (2) verify that existing controls have not been compromised by the change. Affected chemical hazard information, process operating limits, and equipment information, as well as procedures are updated to incorporate these changes. In addition, operating and maintenance personnel are provided any necessary training before the change is implemented.





15. INCIDENT INVESTIGATION



The ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant promptly investigates all incidents that resulted in, or reasonably could have resulted in, a fire/explosion, toxic gas release, major property damage, environmental loss or personal injury. The goal of each investigation is to determine the facts and develop corrective actions to prevent a recurrence of the incident or a similar incident. The investigation team documents its findings, develops recommendations to prevent a recurrence, and forwards these results to plant management for resolution. Corrective actions are taken in response to the investigation team's findings and recommendations are tracked until they are complete. The resolution of each finding or recommendation is documented and the investigation results are reviewed with all employees (including contractors) who could be affected by the findings. Incident investigation reports are retained for at least five years so that the reports can be reviewed during future PHAs and PHA revalidations.





16. COMPLIANCE AUDITS



To help ensure that the Accident Prevention Program is functioning pr
operly, the ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant periodically conducts an audit to determine whether the procedures and practices required by the Accident Prevention Program are being implemented. Compliance audits are conducted at least every three years. The audit team develops findings that are forwarded to management for resolution. Corrective actions taken in response to the audit team's findings are tracked until they are complete. The resolution of each finding is documented, and the most recent audit reports are retained.





17. CHEMICAL SPECIFIC PREVENTION STEPS



The processes at the ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant have hazards that must be managed to ensure continued safe operation. The Accident Prevention Program summarized previously is applied to all covered processes at the plant. Collectively, these prevention program activities help prevent potential accident scenarios that could be caused by (1) equipment failures and (2) human errors.



In addition to the Accident Prevention Program activities, the plant has safety features on many units to help, (1) quickly detect a release, (2) contain/control a release, and (3) reduce the consequences of (mitigate) a release. The following types of safety features are used in various processes:



Release Detection:



1. Hydrocarbon detectors with alarms



2. Halogen detectors with alarms



3. TV surveillance cameras



Release Containment/Control:



1. Process relief valves that discharge to a flare to capture and incinerate episodic releases



2. Valves to permit isolation of the process (manual or automated)



3. Automated shutdown systems for specific process parameters (e.g., high level, high temperature)



4. Curbing or diking to contain liquid releases



5. Redundant equipment and instrumentation (e.g., uninterruptible power supply for process control system, backup firewater pump)



6. Atmospheric relief devices



Release Mitigation:



1. Fire suppression and ex
tinguishing systems



2. Deluge system for specific equipment



3. Trained emergency response personnel



4. Personal protective equipment (e.g., protective clothing, self-contained breathing apparatus)



5. Blast resistant buildings to help protect personnel and control systems





18. FIVE YEAR ACCIDENT HISTORY

19. EMERGENCY RESPONSE PROGRAM INFORMATION



The ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant maintains a written emergency response program, which is in place to protect worker and public safety as well as the environment. The program consists of procedures for responding to a release of a regulated substance, including the possibility of a fire or explosion if a flammable substance is accidentally released. The procedures address all aspects of emergency response, such as; proper first-aid and medical treatment for exposures, evacuation plans and accounting for personnel after an evacuation, notification of local emergency response agencies and the public if a release occurs, and post incident cleanup and decontamination requirements. In addition, the plant has procedures that address maintenance, inspection, and testing of emergency response equipment, as well as instructions that address the use of emergency response equipment. Employees receive training in these procedures to perform their specific emergency response duties. The emergency response program is updated based on modifications made to plant processes or facilities. The emergency response program changes are administered through the MOC process, which includes informing and/or training affected personnel in the changes.



The overall emergency response program for the ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant is coordinated with the East Baton Rouge Parish Loca
l Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC). This coordination includes periodic meetings of the committee, which includes local emergency response officials, local government officials, and industry representatives.



The plant has around-the-clock communications capability with appropriate LEPC officials and emergency response organizations (e.g., City of Baton Rouge Fire Department). This provides a means of notifying the public of an incident as well as facilitating quick response to an incident. In addition to periodic LEPC meetings, the plant conducts periodic emergency drills that involve the local response agencies.





20. PLANNED CHANGES TO IMPROVE SAFETY



Our Operations Integrity Management System forms the cornerstone for continuous improvement in our safety-related systems. These systems are evergreen and are in a continuous state of improvement. Some examples are the recommendations from our hazard reviews and any incident investigations. Other planned changes to improve safety are:



- Continue efforts to identify, inspect, and appropriately address equipment with the potential for corrosions under insulation.



- Continue efforts to reduce risk associated with permanent and temporary occupied buildings.
