Accident Classified As: Reportable Quantity
ON December 5, 2013, operations personnel in Logistics discovered a line leaking #6 Oil in the containment area near tank F-492. Immediately after discovery, remediation and maintenance efforts began.
Report states that release was not preventable, as it was an unexpected leak due to corrosion under insulation.
Liquids were recovered using a vacuum truck. Contaminated soils were excavated and properly disposed. Material that evaporated during the release and recovery operation was released to the atmosphere and dispersed naturally. Operations worked to identify the exact leak source on this insulated line. Insulators were dispatched to remove insulation which identified a hole in the top side of the pipe which was caused by corrosion, and the line was isolated. All impacted soils were excavated and properly disposed. Motiva has no current knowledge of pollution migration as material was remediated and recovered in the containment area.
