|LDEQ Accident Number
|Point Source(s): |
Relief valve on pipeline
Pollutant(s):Hydrogen - BRQ
|Cause of Problem: Equipment Failure|
The compressor recyclers did not respond quickly enough, so increased pressure in the pipeline caused the relief valve to pop, releasing hydrogen to the air.
|The release was reported as being secured immediately, and 2.19 lbs. of hydrogen were released, which is below reportable quantity. The State Police Report indicates that a 7-day report was promised.|
