g. DESCRIPTION: Earlier today, personnel essential to the listed refinery were informed by on-site staff about an alert regarding a butane release from a single tank railcar (#302820) into the atmosphere. The tank railcar was estimated to be carrying approximately 740 barrels of the material at the time of the release. Despite the unknown quantity of the release, on-site personnel deemed it to be of a "small" magnitude. The facility dispatched its emergency response team to address the situation, and technicians stopped the release without any further incidents. The released material to the atmosphere was unrecoverable. The refinery remains operational, and there have been no reported impacts on the facility's staff or the public. An Incident Command Center has been established, and a plan of action is currently being developed. The initial investigation identified an equipment failure, specifically a loose threaded connection on the railcar, as the cause of the incident. Ongoing investigations are being conducted to further understand the circumstances.
