Executive Summary

TOWNSEND NO. 1 PRODUCTION FACILITY RISK MANAGEMENT PLAN: EXECUTIVE SUMMARY



ACCIDENTAL RELEASE PREVENTION AND EMERGENCY RESPONSE POLICIES



Samson Contour Energy E&P, LLC (Samson) has a long-standing commitment to workers and public safety. This commitment is demonstrated by the resources invested in accident prevention such as training personnel and considering safety in the design, installation, operation, and maintenance of the facility's processes. The Samson policy is to implement reasonable controls to prevent foreseeable releases of substances.



DESCRIPTION OF THE STATIONARY SOURCE AND REGULATED SUBSTANCES



Samson operates the Townsend No. 1 Production Facility in Jackson Parish, Louisiana. This facility is a natural gas processing plant which removes liquids from a gas stream. Mixed liquids removed from the gas stream are stored in a pressurized bullet tank prior to being shipped off site in tanker trucks. As evidenced in the ensuing text and based on criteria outlined in the Accidental Release Prevention (ARP) Program, the Townsend No. 1 Production Facility is a Program 1 process.



The Townsend No. 1 Production Facility was evaluated to determine if any regulated flammable or toxic substances were present in the process and if they exceeded threshold quantity. All equipment and vessels are considered to be connected and/or co-located; consequently, for the purposes of the ARP Program, all equipment and vessels are part of a single process. The identification of even a single vessel exceeding threshold quantity of a regulated flammable or toxic substance would subject a process to threshold determination for offsite consequence analysis.



Samson identified one flammable liquid mixture and zero regulated toxic substances. The identification of this exceedance indicates that the Townsend No. 1 Production Facility is a covered process with a regulated substance subject to offisite consequence analysis.



FIVE-YEAR ACCIDENT HISTORY



The Tow
nsend No. 1 Production Facility has not had any accidental releases that meet the criteria for an accidental release as discussed in 40 CFR 68.42.



LOCAL EMERGENCY RESPONSE COORDINATION



Since the facility is unmanned, Samson will not implement a site-specific emergency response plan. Emergency response activities are coordinated with the LEPC who will contact the local fire department as required in 40 CFR 68.12(b)(3).
