Accident Classified As:
West Plant process pump adjacent to the coker was overflowing. Prior to the incident, approximately 3.30 inches of precipitation was received in the area on the day of 12/01/09.
Determination of whether or not it was preventable is still under investigation.
Vacuum trucks and oil booms were mobilized to clean up and contain the overflowing sump. Pumps upstream of the overflowing pump were shut-off to allow time to bring the process back under control. After the sump was pumped down to a normal operating level, and all visible oil was vacuumed off the soil and fill, operations closed the sump and barricaded off the area
