Flowline Contingency Plans
The Flowline Contingency Plan is is the latest requirement added to the typcial SPCC Plan (Spill Plan) requirements by the EPA. If you are an oil company it is imperative to understand that when you're audited by the EPA, the Inspector will ask for many things. If you do not have these documents they will fill out their paperwork and most likely fine you for "deficiencies" and "infractions." They will walk around your facility and make many notes about what is correct and what is not correct.
Here at Spill Plan Reports, Inc. we have helped dozens of clients get through this audit with no problems. We make sure you have the forms and documents to be compliant no matter how complicated your battery is. Essentially, the flowline plan is a document that shows what the operator plans to do when the flowlines rupture and cause spills outside of the tank battery. You might have a spill from the wellhead to the battery or from the battery to an injection well. No matter the situation, the Flowline Plan covers your regulatory requirements for this.
Call one of our staff members today and get compliant ASAP before you're audited. The fines for not having the SPCC Plan or Flowline Plan could be $1000 per day until you're in compliance. The maximum published daily fine by the EPA is $27,500 per day. One thing to keep in mind is that not only do you have to pay the daily fine that they choose, but you still have to pay to get into compliance. Then, if you're fined you have to deal with the backlash of being published in public journals and websites telling everyone about your non-compliance.
It's better to be compliant from the start. Call us today and let's get you set up with everything you need. Compliance is not just the law, it's good business practice.
