ADGAS EMERGENCY RESPONSE PROCEDURES Date: 15.05.08

1. INTRODUCTION

Prompt and effective emergency response reduces accidental losses and the consequences of
natural and man-made disasters. During an emergency there is not enough time to decide who
is in charge, what outside help is required and who needs to do what to control the emergency
situation. These issues must be addressed prior to the emergency.
An effective emergency plan assigns responsibilities to specific individuals, establishes
evacuation procedures, provides for notification to external agencies, establishes means of
communications and provides guidelines for critical specific emergency situations.

2. OBJECTIVE

The following are the main objectives of the ADGAS Emergency Response Procedures
Manual (ERPM)
To define the Emergency Organisation and the individuals functional role within the
organisation.
To provide clear and concise instructions to all Staff in the event of an emergency.
To consider some specific emergencies and outline individual guidelines for response.

3. SCOPE

This ERPM primarily applies to all Divisions/ Departments in ADGAS Das Island personnel
who have an assigned responsibility for handling an emergency within ADGAS area of
operation.
This ERPM gives a broad outline of individual’s responsibility during an emergency and
procedures for dealing with some specific emergencies.
This ERPM by no means covers all eventualities and SHOULD be considered only as a guide
and general source of information.
For emergency involving Crisis Management Team, refer to Crisis Management Plan.
For emergency involving ADMA-OPCO refer to the Facility Response Plan & ADMA-OPCO-
ERPM

4. DEFINITIONS

The following terms have been used in this manual to define a condition or course of action:

SHALL
The word 'SHALL' expresses a mandatory requirement for a condition or course of
action.

SHOULD
The word 'SHOULD' expresses a strongly recommended or preferred condition or
course of action.

MAY
The word 'MAY' suggests a possible course of action or condition where other options
are available.
WARNING
A warning is used where failure to follow an instruction could result in serious injury or
major incident.

YELLOW ALERT
This is an emergency which involves considerable hazard to personnel and/or plant
with the potential for escalation to a serious emergency situation.
The Plant or New Tank Farm siren may be actuated.
An ADGAS Group Alert is given in these circumstances and ADMA-OPCO is
informed.
For any emergency situation if the ADGAS Group Alert is activated, the alert status is
automatically considered to be “Yellow Alert”
RED ALERT
This is a serious emergency situation requiring the possible evacuation of all but
essential personnel from Das Island.
The Island sirens shall be actuated in these circumstances and an ADGAS Group Alert
given.
In the case of a red alert status, ADMA-OPCO Incident Controller becomes overall in
charge.
MINOR LEAK
A hydrocarbon leak which is within the resources of the Operations Shift
Superintendent (SS) to bring under control without calling for outside assistance, and
without danger of escalation.

course for all new employees and employees being relocated to Das Island. For ICS
training refer to binder “A” FRP

6.3 DRILLS

6.3.1 Introduction
In order to test ADGAS employees understanding and adherence to the
ERPM, and also to prove the actual procedures themselves with a practical
demonstration of their efficiency or need for reappraisal, three types of
Emergency Drills are performed on a regular basis on the LNG Plant.
These are the Mini Exercise, the Major Exercise, and the Crew Award
Exercise.
6.3.2 Mini- Exercise
The Mini Exercise is designed to involve only Shift Operations Personnel, is
planned on a regular basis, and numbers around 20 exercises per year to give
all senior and junior crews equal participation. The Mini Exercise focuses on
a small scale emergency which is within the capability of the duty shift crew
to control, and does not require external assistance.

6.3.3 Major Exercise


The Major Exercise is designed to involve Shift Operations Personnel, all
ADGAS Group Alert Personnel, plus Das Island Fire Service (DIFS). It is

Network Loc. : Directory Name HSEERP-0 Page No : 13


HEALTH, SAFETY, ENVIRONMENT DEPARTMENT Rev. No. 0

ADGAS EMERGENCY RESPONSE PROCEDURES Date: 15.05.08

planned on an irregular basis in order to inject the element of surprise, and


numbers at least three exercises per year, selecting a different senior crew and
a different scenario for each exercise.
6.3.4 Crew Award
The Crew Award Exercise is held once per year for each senior and junior
shift operations crew. It is designed to test individual and group knowledge of
Emergency Plans and Procedures, and practical first aid response to
emergency situations with regard to fire fighting, gas containment, Breathing
Apparatus (BA), rescue and resuscitation. The Crew Award Exercise is
intended to stimulate operator interest and participation in the on-going
practical training from HSED and DIFS.
6.3.5 Follow Up
Both mini and major exercises have a follow-up debriefing session, where
positive (and negative) actions are discussed, and positive recommendations to
improve procedures, equipment, response, or to identify areas for training are
made.
Important Note: It is required to give 24 hours notice to Critical National
Infrastructure Authority (CNIA), through ADGAS PO(R) for
all emergency exercises.
6.4 CONTRACTORS
Contractors involved in work activities on Das Island SHALL also be given a briefing
on the contents of the ERPM and SHALL, prior to starting work, be able to
demonstrate competency in understanding the relevant aspects of the contents and its
correct application.

7.1.8 Communication of Incidents to Local Authorities


The requirement for reporting of any incident to local authorities is covered in
detail in ADGAS HSE Manual Chapter 10 and this is generally within 24
hours to the various authorities. However, there is an exception regarding
fires of any magnitude e.g. full fire, a single flame, smouldering, or burning,
these must be reported immediately to the Critical National Infrastructure
Authority (CNIA). The mechanism for this reporting is through Head of Shift
Operations (HSO) to duty OSE who will inform the Personnel Officer
(Relations) who in turn will inform the CNIA of the event.
In the event of any fire, including late fire calls the Head of Shift Operations
(HSO) must call the duty OSE who will initiate the necessary reporting
through PO(R).

7.1.9 Accident & Incident Investigation


All accidents & incidents including fires, injuries, and environmental damage or
asset damage will be investigated by ADGAS through the Accident & Incident
reporting procedure to allow lessons to be learned and improvements to be
made. Only cases of suspected criminal damage will be handed to the police for
investigation. The Police and State Security will be kept informed of the
outcome of any ADGAS investigation into Reportable Accidents (see Chapter
10, Section 8).
