Orignal Description:On 12/22/2021, the reporting party was notified of a potential release of crude oil emanating from pipeline #0919. The transfer pipeline extends from Platform Eva to the Fort Apache Onshore Separation Facility. As a precaution, the pipeline was shut in and an Oil Spill Response Organization (OSRO) notified. Since that time, a unified command was assembled consisting of OSRO, California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE), U.S. Coast Guard (USCG), California State Lands Commission (SLC), and the California Department of Fish & Wildlife's (CDFW) Office of Spill Prevention and Response (OSPR). Earlier this morning, a coordinated effort to locate the source of the release was put into operation. The plan included pushing seawater through the line to evacuate the remaining oil in the line. Safety measures were put in place prior to commencement of the operation to include aerial observation and on-site vessels (booms and skimmers). During the operation, a helicopter crew observed a sheen on the surface of the ocean and the pumping was stopped. The sheen was immediately contained within a boom and a cleanup operation initiated. Further actions to identify the source are pending.
Update(s): 01/03/2022 12:02:35 PM - Per NRC #1325800, "The total amount released was twenty-five gallons." No other information was updated.
; 01/04/2022 08:41:48 AM - RP states they have spotted a new sheen that is 6 ft X 750 ft. Release is not stopped and not contained with waterways impacted (Pacific Ocean). Booms have been deployed and recovery will start today. Caller states this is possibly related to a pipeline incident.
