Executive Summary

This facility is subject to the EPA's SPCC regulation (40 CFR 112.7) and the release prevention procedures are discussed in more detail in the facility SPCC plan.

The emergency response procedures are contained at the front of the Risk Management Plan and these procedures will be implemented in the event of an accidental release or the threat of such a release. This facility processes natural gas, natural gas liquids (NGL), and oil from a producing well. High pressure gas from the well is sent to a high pressure separator and subsequently routed to the inlet of the gas plant. The gas plant strips out NGL liquids which are stored in a single 30,000 gallon pressurized bullet tank operating at approximately 170 psig. The NGL is removed from the facility by transfers to tank trucks. Liquids from the high pressure separator are routed to lower pressure separation vessels and the oil product is stored in three bulk atmospheric storage tanks (400 barrels each) and removed from the site via transfers to tank trucks.

The facility is subject to the RMP requirements since it is a natural gas processing plant producing NGL and contains threshold quantities of regulated substances. The facility has approximately 156,000 pounds of NGL and 277,200 pounds of condensate on site. The NGL and oil products are a mixture of hydrocarbons consisting of methane, ethane, butane, isobutane, isopentane and pentane. For purposes of determining the largest weight on site, the highest density substance was used (butane for NGL and pentane for condensate).

Since this facility is a Program 1, a documented prevention program is not required. The operator is aware of the General Duty Clause in the Louisiana regulations (see Section 1.4 of the "Chemical Accident Prevention Compliance Program" document) and accidental release prevention is a policy adopted by the operator.

As documented in Section 4.0 of the Risk Management Plan, the facility has not experienced a release as defined in t
he regulation within the past five years.

Since this facility is a Program 1, a written Emergency Response Plan is not required. Emergency response procedures have been developed and are contained at the front of this plan and these procedures will be implemented in the event of an accidental release or the threat of such a release.

At present time, there are no planned changes to improve safety.
