OPA 90 Facility Response Plans

Certain facilities require an FRP in accordance with requirements of 33 CFR Part 154 Subpart F and 40 CFR 112 in general accordance with the Oil Pollution Act of 1990. RLA will develop the FRP from final construction drawings, anticipated material handling procedures, developed cargo transfer procedures, emergency contact procedures and contact information, information regarding mutual support arrangements for spill response and emergency medical care, and existing company response procedures. The FRP will be drafted by RLA for review and approval, and a detailed FRP will be submitted to the U.S. Coast Guard and EPA.

Facility Dock Operations Manuals

RLA will work closely with facility personnel to review and update a U.S. Coast Guard Operations Manual for the facility’s shop/barge dock operation in accordance with 33 CFR 154. RLA will conduct a site visit to prepare an operations manual and collect necessary information to include: transfer and storage product characteristics (MSDS, etc.); tank capacity and construction; docks and transfer site diagrams; vessel descriptions, including size and operating capacity; description of emergency response equipment; updates to site personnel training programs; current emergency call lists; general diagram of pneumatic or other operating transfer systems and components; and other pertinent dock security upgrades.

Facility Dock and Transfer operations

RLA consultants will work with Facility Service Operators to develop and design an Operational Plan for facility dock and transfer operations. RLA will conduct pre-inspections and provide recommendations before USCG annual compliance inspections.
