Executive Summary

LBC Baton Rouge, Sunshine Terminal, Sunshine, Louisiana

ACCIDENTAL RELEASE PREVENTION AND EMERGENCY RESPONSE POLICIES

At LBC Baton Rouge we are committed to operating and maintaining our terminal in a safe and responsible manner. We use a combination of accidental release prevention programs and emergency response planning programs to help ensure the safety of our employees, our neighbors, and protection of the environment.
This document provides a brief overview of the comprehensive risk management activities at LBC Baton Rouge,up to and including:
* A description of our facility and the storage and transfer of chemicals;
* Accidental release prevention program;
* Five year accidental release of regulated chemicals;
* Emergency Response Program; and
* Planned and implemented improvements to help prevent accidental releases of hazardous chemicals.

STATIONARY SOURCE

LBC Baton Rouge is a public bulk liquid storage and transfer facility. We are not a manufacturing or processing plant. Chemicals, oils, and petroleum products are stored and transferred via tank trucks, rail cars, barges, pipelines and ships. There is a number of regulated toxic and flammable chemicals which we are permitted (facility air permit based on health effects) to store but do not presently have on site. A majority of the regulated flammable chemicals are covered by OSHA's Process Safety Management regulations.

GENERAL ACCIDENTAL RELEASE PREVENTION PROGRAM

Our accidental release prevention program is a systematic, proactive approach to preventing accidental releases of hazardous chemicals. Our management system addresses each of the key features of successful
prevention programs, including:
* Process safety information.
* Process hazard analysis.
* Pre-startup review.
* Employee participation.
* Mechanical integrity.
* Operating procedures.
* Training.
* Hot work permit.
* Compliance audits.
* Incident investigation.
* Contractors.

Our company and our employees are committed to the standar
d that these management systems set for the way we do business and those accountabilities that ensure we are meeting our own high standards for accident prevention.

FIVE YEAR ACCIDENT HISTORY FOR REGULATED SUBSTANCES

Based on the RMP rule, we have not experienced a regulated chemical release in the past five years.

EMERGENCY RESPONSE PROGRAM

The LBC Baton Rouge Emergency Response Plan addresses various federal, state and local regulatory requirements for emergency response planning. Our program provides the essential planning and training for effectively protecting employees, the public, and the environment during emergency situations. We coordinate our plan with the Iberville Parish LEPC community response plan.

PLANNED AND IMPLEMENTED CHANGES TO IMPROVE SAFETY

The following is a list of planned and implemented improvements to minimize accidental releases, thus improving safety:
* Maintain current standard operating procedures;
* Set minimum standards for equipment used in the storage and transfer of chemicals.
* Maintain tank truck and rail car pre-load and post-load inspection criteria.
* Improved training programs.
