|LDEQ Accident Number
|Point Source(s)||Notes||Amount of Release|
|roll-off bin||Cause: A roll-off bin containing containing stormwater separator sludge was being raised by rails for transport. Raising the bin caused 3.6 barrels of the contained material to escape from under the tarp covering the roll off bin and spill to soil.|
Notes: The spill occurred instantaneously requiring no direct action to stop further material from being released. Current procedures for handling roll of bins are being evaluated. Contaminated soil was disposed of properly. 3.6 of oil was released which exceeds the 1 barrel RQ.
|Oil (Separator Sludge): 151.0 gallons|
|No LDEQ Reported|
|locomotive||Cause: There was smoke caused by a fire in locomotive.|
Notes: No information given regarding remedial actions. There is no LDEQ and no SPOC report in the file.
|2795-V6, Refinery Tank Farm||Cause: ExxonMobil Refinery Plant reported several operating compliance matters and potential RQ exceedances resulting from upset conditions caused by Hurricane Isaac.
Tank 109: An external roof vent was discovered missing on tank 109. There was no damage to the floating roof of this tank and there are no additional emissions from the missing vent on the external roof of tank 109.
Tank Socks: Multiple tank socks were discovered missing.
Tank 785 Pontoon Covers: Four pontoon covers were discovered blown off tank 785.
External Storage: No flaring occurred as a result of the temporary shutdown/curtail of butane and isobutane to alternative despositions to eliminate potential flaring
Continuous Emissions Monitoring System (CEMS):
CEMS analyzers at the BRRF may have experienced less than 90% data availability.|
Notes: Tank 109: There were no additional emissions from the missing vent on the external roof of tank 109. Tank Socks: The missing socks will be replaced as soon as possible (or within 45 days). Tank 785 Pontoon Covers: Upon discovery, the pontoon covers were repositioned. There were no excess emissions. External Storage: No flaring occurred as a result of the temporary shutdown/curtail of butane and isobutane to alternative despositions to eliminate potential flaring Continuous Emissions Monitoring System (CEMS): ExxonMobil is working to determine the extent to which the CEMS analyzers may have malfunctioned. The findings will be included in the CEMS quarterly report. The report lists a summary of estimated pounds released until repairs. The report suggests that estimates are assuming it would take 45 days to make necessary repairs.
