Cause: A follow up report was submitted March 12, 2013. This report has the same accident number, and is filed under 1286550 in this database to separate the two incidents in their appropriate years. This report serves as written notification to comply with 40 CFR 302.8, which requires the owner or operator of facility to submit written follow up information for the verbal reporting of a continuous release(CRR). On October 10, 2010 Exxon Mobil Corporation's Baton Rouge Refinery made an initial notification to the NRC, the LA State Police Hazardous Materials Unit, the East Baton Rouge Parish Fire Department, and the LDEQ of the Refinery's continuous releases of hydrogen sulfide. Per continuous release reporting requirements, a one-time follow up report will be filed within thirty days of the anniversary of the source change. Thereafter, annual reassessments will be issued if there is a Statically Significant Increase or a change in the source of release. Report states that hydrogen sulfide is being released continuously due to "burning natural gas as furnace and incinerator fuel".

135706-141385

2011-12-02
Fluid Catalytic Cracking
Cause: Hydrogen Cyanide is being released from the Fluid Catalytic Cracking, but no information was given on the cause of the release (based on first written notification). (There was an initial followup on 8/17/2012 and a final follow up on 1/8/2013 - the following information is from follow up report 8/17/2012): The refinery is reporting a statistically significant increase above the upper bound of the initial reported quantity for hydrogen cyanide (HCN). The increase is based on stack testing on the Fluid Catalytic Cracking Unit Wet Gas Scrubber.

Followup: Yes

Notes: This is a continuous without interruption release of Hydrogen Cyanide from a 250 foot Fluid Catalytic Cracking unit. ExxonMobil reported the initial release based on a change in methodology as a result of the EPA Information Collection Request and subsequent test data becoming publicly available to other facilities. In the Section II Source Information it states that the normal range for HCN has a lower bound of 44.63 lbs/day and an upper bound of 444.3 lbs/day. Per year, the lower bound would result in 16289.95 lbs/year and the upper bound would result in 162169.5 lbs/year of HCN. If ExxonMobil reported the median of these bounds, the reported amount would be 244.47 lbs/day, or 89229.73 lbs/year. The total quantity released over the year reported by ExxonMobil was 22,000 lbs/year. Breaking this down, they are saying that 60.27 lbs/day of HCN was being released, which much closer to their lower bound limit (44.63 lbs/day). In the written notification they state that they have now found that they are releasing a statistically significant increase above their upper bound (444.3 lbs/day), meaning there is a discrepancy between their reported release amounts. In the initial written notification, Exxon reported a release of 82 lbs/day in the upper bound and 25.6 lbs/day in the lower bound. The reportable quantity for a continuous release of Hydrogen Cyanide is 10 lbs/day.
Hydrogen Cyanide: 22,000.0 pounds

Crude Tanks
Furnaces, Incinerators
Cause: This is an update on a continuous release notification submitted by ExxonMobil on 1/18/2011. The 2011 report has the same incident number, and is filed in this database under 128655 (SERNO # 4813), without a following zero, to keep the two reports in their respective years. This report serves as written notification to comply with 40 CFR 302.8, which requires the owner or operator of facility to submit written follow up information for the verbal reporting of a continuous release(CRR). On October 10, 2010 Exxon Mobil Corporation's Baton Rouge Refinery made an initial notification to the NRC, the LA State Police Hazardous Materials Unit, the East Baton Rouge Parish Fire Department, and the LDEQ of the Refinery's continuous releases of hydrogen sulfide. Per continuous release reporting requirements, a one-time follow up report will be filed within thirty days of the anniversary of the source change. Thereafter, annual reassessments will be issued if there is a Statically Significant Increase or a change in the source of release.

Followup: No

Notes: On March 12, 2013, a first anniversary follow-up letter to initial notifications made in February 2012 of a change in sources of the continuous releases of hydrogen sulfide with updates on these sources and amount release. In addition to continuous release from furnaces and incinerators, ExxonMobil identified the potential for hydrogen sulfide to be present in selected crude and process oil streams. Exxon Mobil has submitted a permit renewal to the LDEQ to incorporate hydrogen sulfide emissions in crude tanks. For 2012-2013, estimates for the rate of release of hydrogen sulfide ranged from 5 lb/day to 14 lb/day from furnaces and incinerators. This corresponds to annual emissions of 1825 lbs for the lower bound and 5110 lbs for the upper bound. LABB researchers have averaged these two estimates for the release amount here. ExxonMobil's total estimate of hydrogen sulfide releases from crude tanks was 54 lb for the year, which is slightly below the lower bound rate of 0.15 lb/day. The lower bound for daily emissions is .15 lbs/day and the upper bound is .58 lb/s day. This corresponds to annual emissions of 54.75 lbs for the lower bound and 211.7 lbs for the upper bound. LABB researchers have averaged these two estimates for the release amount included here.

Combined cooling tower return line
Cause:

Followup: No

Notes: Initial El Paso sampling of the combined cooling tower return line indicated a leak rate of 16 lbs/day of hydrogen sulfide and 7 lbs/day of benzene. Additional sampling was performed on the individual cooling tower return lines that combine to become the main line that was initially tested. Results from this additional sampling of the three individual lines showed no active leak. With this additional information, it was determined that there were issues with the original sampling of the combined return line. Therefore, no reportable quantities were exceeded as a result of this event.
