Executive Summary

WEST ARCADIA DRIP POINT RISK MANAGEMENT PLAN: EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

ACCIDENTAL RELEASE PREVENTION AND EMERGENCY RESPONSE POLICIES

St Mary Land & Exploration Company (St Mary) 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. St Mary?s policy is to implement reasonable controls to prevent forseeable releases of substances.

DESCRIPTION OF THE STATIONARY SOURCE AND REGULATED SUBSTANCES

St Mary operates the West Arcadia Drip Point located in Bienville Parish, Louisiana. This facility is a natural gas processing plant that produces liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) by Joule-Thompson separation with water removal by glycol dehydration. Liquids removed from the gas stream are stored in a 10,000-gallon bullet tank. These liquids are transported from the site via tanker trucks. As evidenced in the ensuing text and based on criteria outlined in the Accidental Release Prevention Program (ARP), the West Arcadia Drip Point is a Program 1 process.

West Arcadia Drip Point was evaluated to determine if any regulated flammable or toxic substances were present in the process and if they exceeded the 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 quantities of a regulated flammable or toxic substance would subject a process to threshold determination for offsite consequence analysis.

St Mary identified one flammable liquid mixture and zero regulated toxic substances. The identification of a flammable mixture which exceeds threshold quantity indicates that the West Arcadia Drip Point is a covered process with a regulated substance subject to
offsite consequence analysis.

FIVE-YEAR ACCIDENT HISTORY

The West Arcadia Drip Point has not had any accidental releases in the past five years that meet the criteria for an accidental release as discussed in 40 CFR 68.42.

LOCAL EMERGENCY RESPONSE COORDINATION

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