Addressing API Standard 2350 forOverfill ProtectionA Varec, Inc. White Paper

AddressingAPI Standard 2350for Overfill Protection and PreventionIn the coming months and years, owners and operators of US-based petroleum storagefacilities will be required to meet the American Petroleum Institute’s Standard 2350 for overfillprotection. This white paper explains in layman’s terms some of the concepts behind thestandard while also providing.1. What to look for in a control room system when performing a risk assessment.2. Examples of how to apply the right Varec solution to your chosen API 2350 tankcategorization.3. A dynamic API 2350 Tank Worksheet.2Varec, Inc.

API Standard 2350 provides conceptual overviewsto assist in the definition of a facility specificOverfill Prevention Process.Overfill Prevention ProcessThe updated API Standard 2350 is intended toencompass bulk storage tanks over 1,320 U.S.gallons (5000 liters) that contain Class I or Class IIpetroleum liquids and to ensure successful shutdown of a receipt or transfer operation in the eventof a possible tank overfill. Standard 2350 providesstructured guidance for a facility to identify thesteps required to achieve compliance. In summary,API Standard 2350 recommends that facilitiesshould perform the following tasks to define anddocument an Overfill Prevention Process (OPP).API Standard 2350 recognizes facility-specificrequirements and places ultimate responsibilityfor compliance with the owner or operator. Forsome, performing and documenting these steps inan unbiased manner can be difficult, especially inareas where the Standard is not specific. Therefore,it the wise operator will consult with an externalcompany—one with a wide range of experiencein the areas of controls automation, systemsintegration, tank gauging, and environmentalcompliance. Perform a risk assessment and gap analysis ofcurrent equipment and operations. Re-categorize tanks—identify and define levels ofconcern and response times for each tank basedon the analysis. Define the required actions to ensure adequateresponse to an event. Document the entire overfill prevention process. Train facility personnel on the new process andmanage the process.3Varec, Inc. Overfill Prevention Process

Operational assessments conducted by aobjective third-party can uncover situations ofrisk that your facility personnel would not see.Risk AssessmentWhen performing and documenting a riskassessment, an operator should focus on theprobable loss of containment that could occurunder normal and abnormal conditions. Historicaloperational data—fill times, flow rates, alarm limits,operator awareness, operator communications,responsibilities, ESD actions, logic—should all beavailable for analysis. If data is not available, thendata should be collected over a period of timeto estimate future performance. For an optimalanalysis, both the recipient’s and transporter’soperations should be investigated.4Varec, Inc. Risk AssessmentRisk assessment is an area where a third-party canprovide an unbiased view. A third-party companywill ask the questions and help define answers forsituations and processes that facility personnel takefor granted, situations that they feel everybodyon site is aware of and knows how and when toreact. A third party can often easily identify theseundefined and dangerous situations.

Independent measurement systems on category 3 tanksrequire uninterrupted power supplies and separatecommunications wiring (from the primary ATGS) to thepoint of alarm or AOPS activation.Alarms and AlertsStandard 2350 does not go so far as to defineor recommend methods or equipment thatwould fulfill the requirements for redundancy orelectronic signal communications for triggeringalarms or activating an overfill prevention system.It simply refers to the use of logic-solving systemsthat output to specific alarms or alert indicatorsbased on the categorization of a tank. Anunderstanding of controls automation and systemintegration will help align operations and systemswithin API’s tank category structure.Generally speaking, for category 1 and 2 tanks,alarm outputs from an ATG system could eithertrigger an alarm directly, or be wired to a PLCor control-room system that in turn activatesalarms or alerts. In the case of category 3 tanks,communications to a PLC (or DCS) system wouldbe most likely. The PLC system could then activatethe alarm or Automatic Overfill Prevention System(AOPS) and share data from the instrument to theinventory control system or the transporter whilestill maintaining independence.5Varec, Inc. Alarms and Alerts

Tank gauging and alarm systems are utilized at thediscretion of the facility owner and operator whentanks are fully attended during receipt.Categorizing TanksLevels of Concern (LOC)The revised API standard provides guidance onhow to categorize a petroleum tank based on thelocation of facility personnel and their ability tooversee receipt operations. This guidance helps toidentify the levels within a tank that would be ofconcern during filling operations and the requiredresponse times needed to terminate the receipt.Within this context, API Standard 2350recommends that the on-tank measurementsystems provide a minimum level of protection.At a minimum, three LOC are established (CH, HH,MW) to drive alarms and alerts. Two additionallevels are deemed optional depending on the tankcategory. Each LOC is established by understandingthe response time that is appropriate for the rate ofvolume change in the tank and the reaction timeneeded by personnel or a system to shut downthe receipt. Depending on the tank category, APIrecommends specific actions be undertaken, andalarms, alerts, or notifications be triggered when anLOC is reached.* Please refer to the published API Standard 2350 forspecific attendance recommendationsCritical High level (CH) requires an emergency managementresponse and a notification is recommended.Automatic Overfill Prevention System (AOPS) on category 3 tanksis activated between HH and CH levels with an optional alarm.High-High level (HH) requires an alarmand receipt termination response.Maximum Working level (MW)with optional alertWorking CapacityDefinition of a minimum workinglevel and alert is optional.Fig. 1 - Levels of Concern per API Standard 23506Varec, Inc. Categorizing Tanks

Unattended tanks should be monitoredremotely to ensure product level is maintainedwithin normal operating conditionsTank CategoryCategory 1: Fully Attended Tanks (Diagrams 1& 2) – Local operations personnel must monitorlevels before and during the receipt and they mustbe able to manually shut down receipt and filloperations to the tank. The facility personnel mustbe in communication with the transporter, who isalso able to terminate receipt.Although the standard does not requireinstrumentation or alarms, Varec recommends alocal tank gauge that provides a tank-side displayand can also trigger a high-high alarm, such as abeacon and siren at the tank side. Alternatively,an independent alarm switch could be used tomonitor the high-high level.Category 2: Semi-Attended Tanks (Diagrams 3to 8)– An automatic tank gauging system (ATGS)must be used that transmits level and high-highalarm information to a control room. The controlroom personnel must be capable of shutting downreceipt and fill operations remotely. In addition,the facility personnel must communicate withthe transporter, who must also monitor the highhigh alarm and be capable of terminating receiptremotely.Category 3: Unattended Tanks (Diagrams 9,10, & 11) – A primary ATGS must be used thattransmits level (inventory) information to a controlroom system. An independent ATG monitorsthe product level for a high-high condition andtriggers an alarm, also in the control room. Theprimary inventory measurement device and themeasurement device that triggers high-high levelalarms are recommended to operate in real-timeand to use a different continuous measurementprinciple.An automatic overfill prevention system (AOPS)shall be employed that is triggered by either ahigh-high condition or failure of the primary ATGS.The transporter must also the monitor level andthe high-high alarm, and must be capable ofremotely terminating receipt.Most ATGSs provide alarm outputs via built-insoftware, mechanical limit switches or electronicrelays. These can be used to trigger alarms atthe tank side, in the control room, or at thetransporter’s control room.7Varec, Inc. Categorizing Tanks

Consideration for floating roof tanksIt should also be noted that additionalconsideration must be given to the selection ofan instrument when gauging product in tanksthat use a floating roof, especially for high-highsensors. API recommends that a gauge should beable to detect the actual liquid level in the event ofa floating roof partially sinks, fully sinks, or sticks inposition. In some instances a gauge platform is notavailable on a floating roof tank. When this is thecase, an operator is forced to measure the floatingroof position and use an offset (the thickness of thefloating roof) to indirectly measure the liquid level.When this is the case, the management plan shouldaccount for this offset by increasing response timesand/or reducing the working capacity of the tank.8Varec, Inc. Categorizing Tanks

Historic data from a control room system, such asFuelsManager can assist in the definition of tankcategories, assess response times and estimate risk.Control Room SystemsThe API Standard overlooks the benefits aninventory management system, such as Varec’sFuelsManager software, can provide a facilityoperator. Such a system can provide valuabledata for the risk assessment and fulfill directrequirements for the API-recommendedmanagement system. For example, historic datacan be analyzed and used to define levels ofconcern (LOCs), assess alarm response times, andassist in process improvement.When Planning for ReceiptInventory reports and estimating features (such asFuelsManager’s Tank Calculator) can function asplanning tools to ensure adequate safety marginsand tank space (ullage) before, during, and afterreceipt, and to estimating fill times. StandardMicrosoft role-based security can assist in thedefinition of duties, chain of command responses,and the assignment of control activities todesignated personnel. If a system is also capable ofcombining custom graphics with outputs from fielddevices, specific displays could assist an operatorin validating the correct valve lineup to ensureproduct is delivered to the correct tank.During ReceiptA suitable inventory management system shouldprovide real-time monitoring and alert operators toabnormal conditions, such as deviations betweenexpected product levels and those recorded by theATGS. A movement-tracking system should be ableto track, quantify, and document product transfers,also in real-time. It should do this for all tanks, notjust those scheduled to receive product.After ReceiptOf course, the system should provide detailedreports that help record and report inventories,track movements, and identify discrepancies.9Varec, Inc.

The decision an operator has before them whenaddressing API Standard 2350 is how to meetthe measurement, alarm, redundancy and failsafe requirements through device I/O, systemscapabilities and communications.SummaryAPI Standard 2350 does not force an owner or operator to re-investcapital in expensive instrumentation and systems. To address theneeds of inventory measurement and overfill protection with tankgauging systems (as defined by API Standard 2350), operatorsmust clarify their operational and overfill response procedures fortheir facility and agree to these with their transporter. They mustalso identify the tank category based on their unique operations—which LOCs demand automation for alarms and, if required, howthey will meet the measurement, alarm, redundancy, and fail saferequirements through existing measurement technologies, deviceI/O, systems software, and logic solver capabilities.14Varec, Inc.
