Presentation on theme: "TABLE TOP EXERCISE ON CHEMICAL(INDUSTRIAL) DISASTER IN BELLARY DISTRICT On 27 TH May 2009."— Presentation transcript:


2 VULNERABILITY OF JSW 1. The following hazardous chemical are handled/used in JSW Steel Limited :- a) Corex Gas (Mainly CO and H 2 ). b) Blast Furnace (BF) gas (Mainly CO and H 2 ). c) LD gas (Mainly CO and H 2 ). d) Chlorine. e) LPG. f) Hydrogen h) Liquid Oxygen.

3 SITUATION 1 JSW-T is generating Corex gas during the steel making process and using it as fuel. Main component of this gas is carbon monoxide (CO) with maximum 43 % as basic composition. It has flammable & toxic characteristic. Various concentrations of other toxic gases in Corex gas are, CO2 – 28.5%, N2-3.5%, H2-20%, CH4-1%, H20-4% & H2S-0.0067%. JSW is holding 1,00,000 nmcub of Corex gas in one holder at single location. The IDLH value of CO is 1200 ppm; explosive levels of hydrogen are LEL = 4.1% by volume of air and UEL = 74.1% by volume of air. Explosive levels of CO are LEL =12.5% by volume of air and UEL = 74% by volume of air.

4 Scenario 1. Intelligence report indicate likely hood of anti national elements targeting some of the economic assets in Karnataka. Requirement 1 1.Additional precautionary measures which the Management of JSW would like to take? 2. Response of Bellary District Administration to this reliable intelligence input.

5 REQUIREMENT 1 1.Additional precautionary measures which the Management of JSW Steel Limited would like to take? 2.Response of the Bellary district administration to this intelligence inputs.

6 SCENARIO 2 Nearby the Corex gasholder there are two bullets of LPG Gas each with a capacity of 18 MT. At about 0330 hrs, on 27 th May 09, three persons wearing the JSW workers uniform, entered the complex scaling the wall between two gates. They walked upto the corex gas- holder area. When they were 50 yards away, two went towards the Corex gas holder area and one towards the LPG storage area. Taking out disposable rocket launchers from their bags, they fired three rockets, two in Corex gasholder direction and one towards the LPG storage area, killing one person on duty. Three blasts were heard almost one km away. Two breaches in the corex gasholder led to release of corex gas into the atmosphere. In LPG storage area there was gas leak initially leading to BLEVE subsequently.

7 Technical details Corex Gas 100,000 ncubm gas. Gas is inflammable and toxic due to mixture of various gases. Gas flow rate is 12000 ncubm/hr in the Gas holder. Gas flow is controlled by valves at limited places.

8 Technical Details LPG BLEVE IDLH 2100 ppm LEL 20,000 ppm, UEL 95000 ppm On BLEVE of 36 MT will have approximate damage distance of 0.6 Km Corex gas holder is coming in this BLEVE zone

9 REQUIREMENT 2 – For JSW Steel Limited 1.Your reaction as operational staff on duty at the sites. 2.Reaction of supervisory staff on duty. 3.Decision making by the Management of JSW Steel Limited looking at the diversified properties of LPG and Corex gas.

10 REQUIREMENT 2 (Contd) - For Bellary Distt Admn 3. On declaration of the ‘off site’ emergency, the sequential actions to be taken by Bellary District Administration, Fire & Emergency Services, Police, Medical Services, Municipal Corporation, Public Relation Officer, NGOs, NDRF & other Stakeholders.

11 Scenario 3 Corex gas is being transported through pipes of 2.5 m dia at various locations within the JSW Steel works area. These pipes are rested on steel structures. At about 10.30 hrs on 27 th May 09, Contractor’s truck carrying awkward load dashed against one of the pipes, leading to breakage of Corex gas pipe line with heavy leakage of Corex gas. Technical details are given below: Release of Corex gas duration = 15 minutes. Maximum Outlet Dia. = 2.5 m Flow rate = 12000 NM3/hr Total released quantity of CO within 15 minutes = 1410 MT For the purpose of calculation, 15 minutes have been taken as representative of time taken to control/manage effectively the release. Temperature = 40 deg C and Pressure = 0.1 bar The end point distance for toxic gas may go outside the boundary (5000-6000 mts)

12 REQUIREMENT 3 1.Reaction of JSW staff on duty who first noticed the accident at the site. 2.Reaction of Safety & Services Staff on duty. 3.On declaration of the ‘off site’ emergency, the sequential actions to be taken by Bellary District Administration, Fire & Emergency Services, Police, Medical Services, Municipal Corporation, Public Relation Officer, NGOs, NDRF & other Stakeholders.
