|Process Unit: Catalytic Reformer Unit||Cause: line leak developed due to internal corrosion|
Notes: Motiva Pressure Equipment Integrity Group has been tasked with evaluating this line and making recommendations that will reduce the likelihood of a recurrence.
|Isolation valve||Cause: While working on the Alky splitter tower reflux pump, the technician loosened screws from a mounting plate connected to a pressure gauge. The tubing connection located upstream of the isolation valve failed and released hydrocarbon. The initial report from the facility stated that 178 pounds of propylene were released when a 1/2 inch tubing broke a reflux pump, but the release was later determined to be below reportable quantity.|
Notes: No information given about remedial actions taken. The refinery letter stated that the incident was not reportable, and no injuries, fatalities, or road closures were associated with this incident.
