|Pipe leak at a pump in Unit 10 Crude unit||Cause: On December 4 at approximately 8:00 hours, there was a pinhole leak in 2 inch insulated piping. Corrosion caused the pinhole.
Report states that none of the emitted pollutants are above reportable quantity levels. However, the RQ level for Flammable Liquids was exceeded during this event.|
Notes: The unit was shut down to repair the leak as the piping could not be isolated. This piping will be routinely inspected and an upstream block valve was added to enable the isolation of this line. The material released was crude oil. It was entirely contained within the unit and routed to the Oily Water Sewer system.
