Accident Classified As: Reportable Quantity
An abandoned gas oil line that runs from Tank 33 to the old FCC unit was leaking from an underground line near the sour water stripper area and discharged approximately 10 gallons to the ground surface prior to identifying the leak.
A vacuum truck was deployed to pick up the material discharging from the pipe to minimize the environmental impact until the line could be isolated. The leaking valve was immediately isolated when it was determined to be the source of the leak and the line was depressured and emptied. The line will be flushed and decommissioned.
