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" section of this 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.



This facility processes natural gas and natural gas liquids (NGL). High pressure gas from field wells is sent to a gas plant whereby NGL liquids are extracted and stored in one 30,000 gallon pressurized bullet tank operating at approximately 200 psig. The NGL is removed from the facility by 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 NGL is a mixture of hydrocarbons consisting of methane, ethane, butane, isobutane, propane and pentane. For purposes of determining the largest weight on site, the highest density substance was used (butane).



Since this facility is a Program 2, a documented prevention program is required. This program is discussed in a "Chemical Accident Prevention Compliance" part of this manual as prepared for the facility. The prevention program does discuss NGL which is the specific chemical contained in an amount above the threshold quantity.



The facility has not experienced an accident as defined in the regulation within the past five years.



Because this facility is a Program 2 covered process, a written emergency response program is required. This program is contained in Section 5.0 of the "Chemical Accident Prevention Compliance Manual" prepared for the facility. Further, emergency response procedures have been developed and are contained at the front of this manual,
and these procedures will be implemented in the event of an accidental release or the threat of such a release. Basically, the instructions are to evacuate the facility and then notify the proper authorities.



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