|GO-1 Process Unit ; West Ops Ground Flare (EPN 9-84)|
West Ops Ground Flare (EPN 9-84)
|Cause: Shell Chemical's GO-1 Process Unit experienced a small pipe leak on a line at the base of a process vessel. The leak developed during an online abrasive blasting job. In order to relieve pressure on this line, operations had to reduce rates at the GO-1 process unit. The reduction of rates caused flaring at Motiva's West Operations Ground Flare (EPN 9-84).|
Notes: Shell Chemical installed a clamp to stop the leak then returned operations to normal conditions.
