Columbia Pacific Bio-Refinery Medium Discharge Drill Exercise Clatskanie, OR August 14 th, 2014
The Columbia Pacific Bio-Refinery (CPBR)/Global Partners owns and operates a fuel-grade ethanol production and bulk liquid commodity transloading facility at Port Westward, located near Clatskanie, Oregon. The Company has continuously executed a business strategy to transload unit trains of bulk liquid commodities, including ethanol and Bakken Crude Oil, to ocean-going barges from the Beaver Westward Dock since November 2012.
Columbia Pacific Facility Start-up in June 2008 Currently Employs 48 Full-Time Personnel Operations are continuous 24 hours 7 days a week It is a gated facility that follows all criteria of Homeland Security
Facility Response Plan Table top Exercise The purpose of this procedure is to describe the proper methods for preventing, responding to, reporting and investigating releases at CPBR. This procedure has been developed to improve facility spill management capabilities through table top exercises which support Federal and State reporting guidelines in the event of a reportable spill or release. It is a preplanned exercise cycle that covers the three different risk factors. 1.Most probable – 28.95 barrels 2.Medium risk – 1200 barrels 3.Worst case – 2895 barrels
The design of the exercise was a joint effort of various members of the Oregon response community, including representatives from the following organizations: Columbia Pacific Bio-Refinery United States Coast Guard (USCG) Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) Clean Rivers Cooperative (CRC) NJ Resources, Inc. (NJR) Washington Department of Ecology Environmental Protection Agency
The exercise was a one-day, Command Post style exercise intended to simulate the initial response to a medium-case discharge. The focus was on the planning process from the ICS-201 Incident Briefing through the Tactics Meeting.
