1 SUNCOR ENERGY PRODUCTS DISTRIBUTION TERMINAL OPERATING MANUAL STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE SAFEWORK PRACTICES EQUIVALENCY PROCEDURE FOR ACCESSING FLOATING ROOF TANKS ON STORAGE TANKS IN SERVICE Date Issued: November 2012 Revision Date: November 2012 Review Date: November 2015 Revision # Initial Issue 1.0 PURPOSE Descent onto an in-service floating roof is considered a confined space entry and as such all requirements of Cat A-1 SOP #01, Confined Space Entry must be adhered to. However since the tank is still in service and not fully purged and isolated, an equivalent means of protection for the workers must be created. This procedure establishes guidelines and identifies equivalent levels of protection for individuals performing Cold Work involving descent onto floating roofs of storage tanks while in service within Distribution. 2.0 SCOPE This Standard Operating Procedure shall apply to all employees and contractors at Suncor Energy Distribution Terminals who are required to descend onto an in service floating roof. References in this document to Suncor Personnel include directors, officers, employees, contract workers, consultants and agents of Suncor. The scope of this document is to define and communicate the precautions and requirements that involve descent onto internal floating roofs of in service petroleum tanks by Suncor Personnel and applicable Contractors working within Distribution Page 1 of 14

9 7.0 DEFINITIONS Acceptable Atmospheric Levels; means that, (a) the atmospheric does not have a concentration of any explosive or flammable gas or vapour at above 1% of the LEL (b) the oxygen content of the atmosphere is at least 19.5 per cent but not more than 23 per cent by volume, normal atmospheric oxygen levels are 20.9%, and (c) the exposure to atmospheric contaminants does not exceed any applicable level set out in a regulations made under the OHSA or it s regulations (d) Test results that that are outside these parameters will require specially trained and certified personnel, and a detailed work plan to be available before entry in permitted Atmospheric Hazards; means, (a) the accumulation of flammable, combustible or explosive agents detected at above 1% of the LEL (b) an oxygen content in the atmosphere that is less than 19.5 per cent or more than 23 percent by volume, or (c) the accumulation of atmospheric contaminants, including gases, vapours, fumes, dusts or mists, that could: (i) result in acute health effects that pose an immediate threat to life, or (ii) interfere with a person s ability to escape unaided from a confined space, or (iii) exceed any applicable level set out in a regulations made under the OHSA or it s Regulations. Reference ACIGH tables for atmospheric contaminant exposure levels to cover those not listed in the updated 2012 OH&S table. Confined Space; According to the definition, there are five critical conditions that must be satisfied for a work space to qualify as a confined space: 1. Be enclosed or partially enclosed 2. Not be designed nor intended for continuous human occupancy 3. Have limited or restricted means for access / egress that may complicate the provision of first aid, evacuation, rescue or other emergency response. 4. Be large enough and so configured that a worker could enter to perform assigned work. 5. Where the potential for a hazardous atmosphere may exist. Floating roof tank; Any vertical open-top or covered cylindrical atmospheric vessel that is equipped with a floating roof. Initial Issue Page 9 of 14

10 In Service Tank; A tank containing an inventory of liquid that is either static or in the process of receiving / discharging liquid or mixing / circulating it s contents. High Roof Position; External Floating Roof Tank the position of the floating roof when the top of the pontoon is within 4 feet of the tank shell. Internal Floating Roof Tank The established operating maximum fill level of the tank. Low Roof Position; The position of the floating roof when it is 8 feet or less above it s minimum design elevation. Lower Explosive Limit; The lowest concentration of gas or vapour that will burn or explode if an ignition source is present at ambient temperature. Terminal Management; highest level of authority on site, may be manager, supervisor or a delegated responsibility Cold Work; means work that is not capable of producing a source of ignition. Hot Work; is generally categorized as any work in which heat is used or generated of such intensity that it is possible to ignite flammable liquids, vapours, gases or combustibles. Static Condition; A condition when the tank is not receiving / discharging liquid or mixing / circulating it s contents. Tank Isolation; The condition that exists when all tank valves are isolated as necessary to preclude the movement of material in or out of the tank, and all electrical devices are deenergized. Initial Issue Page 10 of 14

11 8.0 PROCEDURAL REQUIREMENTS 1. High Roof Position Work must be scheduled for a period when the floating roof is in the High Roof Position. Once the tank has reached the high level, a minimum of hours must be allowed for dissipation of vapours before entry onto the roof will be allowed. 2. Management of Change Entry onto the roof at a lower level other than specified in (1) will only be allowed after a Management of Change has been completed and approved. 3. Tools Only non-sparking, air powered or hand tools will be used. 4. Ventilation Continuous forced-air mechanical ventilation may be required to maintain a safe atmosphere above the internal floating roof. 5. Fall Potential The potential for falling through a roof and or floors of pontoons shall be evaluated during the planning stage of each job. Past inspection records must be consulted to satisfy this concern. Special precautions must be implemented to prevent falling through the roof any time a tank roof is suspected to be weak. 6. Tank Isolation; Tank valves that would allow movement of product in or out of the tank must be chained closed and tagged. Motorized valves must be de-energized and the hand-wheel chained closed and tagged. No product movement into or out of the tank during the confined space entry. 7. Piping; Any piping connected to the shell above the level of the floating roof must be blanked, except any sample taps and any overflow piping. Initial Issue Page 11 of 14

12 8. Electrical Equipment; All electrical equipment such as mixers, motorized valves, circulating pumps, must be deenergized. 9. Atmospheric Testing; Atmospheric testing of the roof area shall be performed prior to descent onto the floating roof. If work is to be performed near roof seals or other openings, additional tests must be performed to identify any potential hazards and assure that the atmosphere in the work area is not in the flammable range. Appropriate PPE shall be utilized while evaluating the atmosphere of the work area. The person conducting the atmospheric test must be protected as if performing work, I.e. SCBA, SABA, harness, life line, and utilize a back-up person Refer to Distribution SOP, Cat A-2, SOP #1, Atmospheric Testing. Continuous atmospheric testing must be worn by the entrants. No entry is to be allowed if the LEL level is greater than 10%. 10. Tank Level; Tank level must be held static for a minimum one hour prior to the gas testing. 11. Stand-By Person; Must be stationed immediately outside the work area to monitor activities on the floating roof. The Stand-By Person shall be equipped with; A radio capable of activating emergency response An air horn to alert personnel on the roof An approved safety vest for clear identification 12. Rescue Equipment; Must be staged at the entry point, available and ready for use prior to entry. 13. Electrical Equipment; All electrical equipment to be used on the floating roof must be rated for use in Class I, Div II atmospheres. Initial Issue Page 12 of 14

13 14. Adverse Weather; Adverse weather conditions will affect work being done on tank roofs. If lightning is observed in the vicinity, all elevated work shall be suspended and all Personnel moved to a safe area at ground level. Work may resume after 30 minutes or more have elapsed since the last strike. 15. Weight Distribution Weight distribution should be considered at all times and excessive weight concentrations should be avoided. Consideration should be given to placement of planks or plywood to improve weight distribution. 16. Cold Work Only cold work will be authorized on the roofs of floating roof tanks in hydrocarbon service. Tasks may include but not limited to; Adjustment of roof legs. Adjustment of vacuum breaker Adjustment / repair of level gauge Inspection of floating roof, pontoons, seals and fire protection system Unplugging of water drains Removing liquid or debris Adjustment / repair of anti rotation guides UT Thickness of roof and pontoons Mechanical repair of roof components Initial Issue Page 13 of 14
