Executive Summary

The emergency action procedures are contained with this manual and these procedures will be implemented in the event of an accidental release or the threat of such a release. To assist with ongoing compliance, a "Chemical Accident Prevention Compliance Manual" has been prepared. Concerning the emergency response policy at the facility, the owner has made the decision that employees will not respond to accidental releases of regulated substances and will instead evacuate.



This facility processes natural gas, natural gas liquids (NGL) and oil from various wells. High pressure gas from the wells are sent to a high pressure separator and subsequently routed to the gas plant. The gas plant strips out NGL liquids which are stored in a single 15,000 gallon pressurized bullet tank operating at approximately 200 psig. The NGL is removed from the facility by transfers to tank trucks. Liquids separated from wellheads are routed to six (6) 400 BBL atmospheric stock tanks. The facility is subject to the RMP requirements because it exceeds threshold quantities of regulated flammable substances.



The NGL and condensate are a mixture of hydrocarbons consisting of methane, ethane, butane, isobutane, propane, pentane, and isopentane. 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 facilities "Chemical Accident Prevention Compliance Program" document) and accidental release prevention is a policy adopted by the operator.



The facility has not experienced a release as defined in the regulation within the past five years.



Since this facility is a Program 1, a written Emergency Response Plan is not required. However, an Emergency Action Plan has been developed, it is mantained by faci
lity personnel, 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
