Executive Summary

This facility is aware of the requirements in the areas of Safety, Hazard Reviews, written Operating Procedures, Training, Maintenance, Compliance Audits, and Incident Investigations. To assist with ongoing compliance, a "Chemical Accident Prevention Compliance Manual" has been prepared and implemented. 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 and make the proper notifications as required by the facility emergency action plan.



The NGL and oil products 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).



The RMP is discussed in the "Chemical Accident Prevention Compliance Manual" prepared for the facility. The RMP does discuss both NGL and condensate. This facility has not experienced a release as defined in the regulation within the past five years. Further more, the emergency response procedures have been developed and are maintained by the facility. The facility has no current plans to improve safety.
