Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure Plans (SPCC) - Kingsport, Sep 27

  1. 1. Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure Plans (SPCC) jeff.haynes@tennessee.edu source: www.epa.gov
  2. 2. What is an SPCC Plan? A plan designed to prevent oil discharges from reaching the navigable waters of the U.S. and adjoining shorelines required by 40 CFR 112, Oil Pollution Prevention. source: www.epa.gov
  3. 3. Before a facility is subject to the SPCC rule, it must meet three criteria: • it must be non-transportation-related; • it must have an aggregate aboveground storage capacity greater than 1,320 gallons or a completely buried storage capacity greater than 42,000 gallons; and • there must be a reasonable expectation of a discharge into or upon navigable waters of the United States or adjoining shorelines. source: www.epa.gov
  4. 4. What is a Non-transportation-related Facility? • Fixed onshore and offshore oil well drilling facilities; • Mobile onshore and offshore oil well drilling platforms, barges, trucks or other mobile facilities; • Fixed onshore and offshore oil production structures, platforms, derricks and rigs; • Mobile onshore and offshore oil production facilities; • Oil refining or storage facilities; • Industrial, commercial, agricultural, or public facilities that use, store, drill for, produce, gather, process, refine or consume oil or oil products; • Certain waste treatment facilities; • Loading areas/racks, transfer hoses, loading arms and other equipment that are appurtenant to a non-transportation related facility; • Highway vehicles and railroad cars used to transport oil exclusively within the confines of a non-transportation related facility; and • Pipeline systems used to transport oil exclusively within the confines of a non-transportation related facility. source: www.epa.gov
  5. 5. What is a Non-transportation-related Facility? • Fixed onshore and offshore oil well drilling facilities; • Mobile onshore and offshore oil well drilling platforms, barges, trucks or other mobile facilities; • Fixed onshore and offshore oil production structures, platforms, derricks and rigs; • Mobile onshore and offshore oil production facilities; • Oil refining or storage facilities; • Industrial, commercial, agricultural, or public facilities that use, store, drill for, produce, gather, process, refine or consume oil or oil products; • Certain waste treatment facilities; • Loading areas/racks, transfer hoses, loading arms and other equipment that are appurtenant to a non-transportation related facility; • Highway vehicles and railroad cars used to transport oil exclusively within the confines of a non-transportation related facility; and • Pipeline systems used to transport oil exclusively within the confines of a non- transportation related facility. source: www.epa.gov
  6. 6. What is Considered “Oil Storage Capacity”? • Oil storage includes all containers storing oil at a facility which are equal to or greater than 55 gallons. The capacity of the containers (maximum or shell capacity) must be considered and not the actual amount of product stored in the container. Oil storage containers include, but are not limited to, – tanks, – containers, – drums, – transformers, – oil-filled electrical equipment (e.g., hydraulic systems, lubricating systems, machining cooling systems, circuit breakers) – mobile or portable totes. source: www.epa.gov
  7. 7. 719 gallons of oil
  8. 8. How do I determine if my facility could reasonably discharge oil into or upon navigable waters or adjoining shorelines? This determination is based upon a consideration of the geographical and locational aspects of the facility. The location of the facility must be considered in relation to streams, ponds and ditches (perennial or intermittent), storm or sanitary sewers, wetlands, mudflats, sandflats or farm tile drains. The distance to navigable waters, volume of material stored, worst case weather conditions, drainage patters, land contours, soil conditions, etc., must also be taken into account. Further, according to the regulation, this determination shall not include consideration of man-made features such as dikes, equipment or other structures (like levees) that may serve to restrain, hinder, contain or prevent an oil discharge. source: www.epa.gov
  9. 9. What is an “Oil”? Under the SPCC regulations, oil is defined as: – "oil of any kind or in any form including, but not limited to, petroleum, fuel oil, sludge, oil refuse and oil mixed with wastes other than dredged spoil and oily mixtures." – This also includes non-petroleum oils, synthetic oils, animal fats, oils and greases, and vegetable oils. – Fuels (gasoline and diesel) are included. source: www.epa.gov
  10. 10. What are the impacts for not having an SPCC Plan? • Non-Compliance Fines – $27,500 per violation per day • Example: – It was determined that a facility needed an SPCC. It was determined that facility met the SPCC requirements a year ago. – (30.4 day/mn)($27,500/day)= $836,000/mn – ($836,000/mn)(12 mn) = $10,032,000 source: www.epa.gov
