regional news APSSCA news By Marcus Cormier As summer finally approaches the Alberta board has been working on preparations for our annual general meeting and our 16th annual golf tournament This year we also have the pleasure of hosting the Canadian Petroleum Contractors annual general meeting The annual meeting always gives us a great opportunity to catch up with members and discuss opportunities and challenges for our industry We hope to see as many of you there as possible This year we are offering two Petroleum Mechanic review and exam sessions the first taking place in Calgary from June 2 to 4 and the other in Edmonton from June 9 to 11 If at any point in the year you bring on new technicians that need to register for the CPCA Petroleum Mechanic Home Study Program you can always do so by contacting Michelle Rae toll free at 866 360 6722 I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our instructor Mr Darcy Teichroeb from Bar W Petroleum for all the time and effort he puts into the training sessions Lastly for the past three years one of our directors Mr Howard Heal has served as a member of the Petroleum Oriented Safety Training POST committee Because a good number of contractors in western Canada are performing work in both the upstream and downstream sectors we sometimes observe differences in safety needs processes and standards from one part of the country to the other Having a voice from western Canada on matters related to the POST program is valuable for our membership I encourage any other petroleum contractor boards from western Canada to reach out to Howard if you have any ideas concerns or problems that you would like to see him bring to the POST committee for discussion Changes coming to the SRPCA By Bob Turczyn When the SRPCA was formed in 1993 by the retail or downstream petroleum construction companies in the province it was done in response to the need to be able to work with customers and the provincial government in applying the relatively new environmental regulations The association saw the need to have proper training and certification of companies and their employees to be able to communicate with government bodies as one organization for the benefit of all parties and to work to improve the industry by being able to provide better solutions to the problems of the day Over the years the association has worked steadily toward achieving those goals At the same time the petroleum industry in the province has not stood still Petroleum storage and marketing standards equipment and suppliers have changed Underground tanks lines and related equipment have changed dramatically there are fewer but larger marketing and storage facilities including many secondary fuel storage terminals around the province many retail and cardlock facilities that incorporate the use of aboveground tanks with secondary containment changes and improvements to site cleanup and remediation techniques etc Most recently changes in how crude oil is extracted stored and shipped to refineries have started to blur the line between upstream and downstream The association has recognized the need to grow and adapt to those changes Starting this year and continuing on into the foreseeable future the SRPCA is looking to increase its membership and to become more inclusive of all parts of the industry This starts with changing the bylaws to allow that to happen The current bylaws call for two types of membership voting and non voting depending on certain aspects of the member s business Opening the association to more voting members will help to increase the sense of ownership and involvement of all segments of the industry in the province To this end Mike Seibel the current president of the association sent a letter and copy of the current bylaws to all members asking for their input in changing and improving them to achieve that goal This will be discussed further at the annual general meeting on June 3 where it is expected that a committee will be appointed to take on the work of making the necessary changes In the absence of a working website more about that in a future article any person or company interested in becoming a member of the SRPCA is asked to contact any one of the individuals listed below PRESIDENT Mike Seibel mseibel nee ca VICE PRESIDENT Terry Lightbody tlightbody kwpetro com TREASURER Darcy Campbell darcycampbell sasktel net JUNE 2014 CANADIAN PETROLEUM CONTRACTOR 5 CPCA_June14_FINAL indd 5 2014 06 17 10 57 AM

regional news MEMBER AT LARGE Kish Parmar kishparmar shaw ca or Bob Turczyn bob_turczyn shaw ca Background information on the history of the SRPCA was taken from an article written by Harold Bemis for the Winter 2006 issue of Canadian Petroleum Contractor Dead end in Quebec By Guy Rochon After 40 years of intense efforts we have to conclude that there is no political will to recognize our employees skills by putting in place a compulsory certification program We have been in a standby situation since 2007 We were told that subsidies were available for the translation of all CPCA training material and for a provincial certification program for our employees There is lot of reticence at the government level and they would go forward with a non compulsory system The AEPQ is not willing to spend about 400 000 to remain as it is now as this investment would represent over 10 000 for each of our members We are then giving up and forgetting our dream of having our employees competence recognized Once again Quebec is very special when the worker installing a toilet bowl needs a license while any Joe Blow can install a 50 000 litre gas tank Route sans issue au Qu bec Par Guy Rochon Apr s 40 ans d efforts nous arrivons la conclusion qu il n y a aucune volont politique pour la reconnaissance des comp tences de nos employ s pour l obtention d un programme de formation obligatoire Depuis 2007 on nous envoie divers ins tances gouvernementales qui nous laissent miroiter que des subventions sont disponibles pour permettre de traduire en fran ais le mat riel didactique du CPCA et pour mettre en place un programme qu b cois pour la certification de nos employ s Comme il y a norm ment de r ticences obtenir une reconnaissance de nos employ s nous sommes d avis de ne plus mettre d efforts cr er un tel programme de formation De plus nous estimons le co t total du programme environ 400 000 et ce sans subvention cela repr senterait un co t moyen de plus de 10 000 pour nos membres Nous mettons donc fin regret notre r ve de voir les comp tences de nos employ s reconnues Encore une fois nous r p tons que l installation d une toilette au Qu bec n cessite une licence pour le travailleur alors que n importe qui peut installer un r servoir de 50 000 litres pour produit p trolier 6 CANADIAN PETROLEUM CONTRACTOR JUNE 2014 CPCA_June14_FINAL indd 6 2014 06 17 10 57 AM

safety bulletin Heat stress How to work safely in hot weather by Michelle Rae Engaging in physical activity when it is hot puts stress on the body s cooling system the harder your body works the more heat it has to dissipate to maintain temperature equilibrium Environmental heat stress can place additional strain on your body that may lead to fatigue dehydration heat related illnesses and possibly even death In outdoor occupations like construction summer sunshine is the main source of heat which can potentially overwhelm the body s ability to deal with heat Most people feel comfortable when the air temperature is between 20 C and 27 C and when relative humidity ranges from 35 60 When air temperature or humidity is higher people feel uncomfortable Such situations do not cause harm as long as the body can adjust and cope with the additional heat Very hot environments can overwhelm the body s coping mechanisms leading to a variety of serious and possibly fatal conditions When the air temperature or humidity rises above the optimal ranges for comfort problems can arise The first effects are subjective in nature they relate to how you feel Exposure to more heat stress can cause physical problems such as heat cramps heat exhaustion and heat stroke all of which impair workers efficiency and may cause adverse health effects The following are some of the symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke If you or a co worker exhibit any of these symptoms seek immediate medical attention SYMPTOMS OF HEAT EXHAUSTION Heavy sweating Cool moist skin Strong thirst Quick pulse Rapid breathing Feeling of fatigue and possible fainting SYMPTOMS OF HEAT STROKE High body temperature 40 C Very hot red and dry skin Tiredness confusion Very rapid pulse May suffer convulsions WHAT TO DO STAY HYDRATED Drink plenty of water frequently equivalent of about one litre every hour in hot weather conditions whether you feel thirsty or not to replace the fluid loss Avoid consuming caffeine and alcohol which can cause dehydration For a complete list of all of the signs and symptoms of heat cramps heat exhaustion and heat stroke visit www POSTtraining ca to download the complete guide for dealing with heat stress JUNE 2014 CANADIAN PETROLEUM CONTRACTOR 7 CPCA_June14_FINAL indd 7 2014 06 17 10 57 AM

Setting a new standard Benefits of electronic line leak detection in the retail petroleum industry by K H Ken Jamieson P Eng M ASCE PM1 PM2 PM3 The detection of leaks in a double wall system has always depended on the secondary system for not only containing a leak but also transporting the leaking product to a sensor to set off an alarm whether by a float sensor in the bottom of a tank interstitial or a sump sensor But in doing so we put our faith in the secondary system being tight There is a major flaw in this assumption as the only way we know the system is tight is by doing the initial secondary testing and hydrostatic sump testing when the site is first built which was up to 22 years ago during the first year of double wall legislation 8 CANADIAN PETROLEUM CONTRACTOR JUNE 2014 CPCA_June14_FINAL indd 8 2014 06 17 10 57 AM

d T he only other time these systems are ever really tested is if the site has an incredibly high groundwater level that causes not only the tanks to become completely submerged but also the sumps electrical entry boots piping entry boots and piping so any leaks allow water to enter a sump and set off a sensor Sites with water tables like this do exist but they are a very small percentage of all the double wall sites out there So for the majority of facilities we don t even know if this secondary system is capable of not only containing the leaks but transporting the leaking product to a sensor to shut things down and set off alarms as is assumed they will the way things are legislated across Canada today If you ve been in the field you have seen entry boots that are cracked split ripped and dried out as well as non coaxial secondary containment piping leaking or bulk head fittings electrical entry boots or sumps cracked or caved in from ground pressure so badly you can t even see inside the sumps anymore And this just isn t at a few sites here and there many sites out there have these kinds of issues The problem we face is there is no easy way to ensure this secondary system is all intact Although jurisdictions require annual testing of the electronic monitoring system and sensors and visual inspection of the systems I don t know of any that enforce it That being said it s not likely a petroleum mechanic professional engineer or even the original equipment manufacturer if they re still in business would sign off that everything is fine and capable of doing what it is designed to do Entry boots are impossible enough to see all the way around to check for any rips let alone to see if the secondary containment layer of the pipe between sumps is okay The only way to be sure is to reinstall all of the test boots on the piping system and pressure test the secondary of the pipe as was done when it was installed Then fill all the sumps with water however because you cannot see the outside of the sumps boots as you could during the initial hydro test you have to leave it for at least 24 hours to see if the water level has dropped Now assume the water you pumped out is contaminated as testing would cost the same and dispose of accordingly Even if the test boots are all in good shape and fit to re test it requires the removal of all dispensers off the islands to access the sumps and test boots This typically costs 3 000 5 000 and requires a site shutdown for at least two days This problem is easily resolved for tanks by positive monitoring of the tank interstitial space either by putting a vacuum on it which is the method I have found most successful or by using a et s move to L legislate that all underground tank and piping pressure systems both new and existing be upgraded to include electronic line leak detection Steelcraft_1011_Waterloo Layout 1 10 25 11 6 15 AM Page 1 Storage Containment Solutions Since 1923 Looking for a superior storage containment solution STEELCRAFT Inc offers a full line of standard and custom liquid containment tanks and systems as well as pressure vessels including single and double walled tanks underground storage process vessels and field erected tanks Field proven after thousands of installations our products meet stringent code specifications and are the choice of engineers contractors and architects With our leading edge engineering custom manufacturing facilities and in house finishing capability you can trust us to deliver a quality product on time every time For lasting trouble free storage containment STEELCRAFT Inc Visit our website or contact us Waterloo ON 1 800 265 8840 Moncton NB 1 888 258 8166 Edmonton AB 1 888 661 8265 Innisfail AB 1 800 661 2851 www steelcraftinc com JUNE 2014 CANADIAN PETROLEUM CONTRACTOR 9 CPCA_June14_FINAL indd 9 2014 06 17 10 57 AM

liquid normally brine solution in the interstitial If the vacuum is lost or the liquid level changes in the interstice of the tank an alarm is activated and we aren t dependent on any ground or product level in the tank to tell us there is a breach in the primary or secondary of the tank Several legislators have already adopted this for new systems however it should be mandated that existing sites be updated to positive monitoring as well It is relatively inexpensive to install a vacuum system on an existing site with a dry float sensor as the wiring is the same it s just a matter of pulling out the old sensor and installing a ULC approved vacuum switch and gauge and pulling the vacuum on the interstitial So it s the piping entry boots and sumps that are the problem The chances of a tank becoming 100 submerged in groundwater are much higher than all the piping sumps and entry boots which are several feet above the top of the underground tanks true positive monitoring of tanks should be a lower priority as far as risk management goes but due to the ease of implementation and no additional cost involved for new facilities it has been easy to adopt Positively monitoring the secondary containment of the piping entry boots and sumps involves ripping everything out and installing doublewall sumps and double wall entry boots which involves huge upfront costs and very high operating and maintenance costs Some US jurisdictions with much better climates than we have in Canada have already adopted this and are apparently experiencing major issues So we are putting all of our trust in a system we know has many issues and this is a very bad situation to be in as we can t honestly say we are doing our due diligence Is there a better way to minimize the risk without spending huge amounts of money The answer is yes What if we could do a much better job of detecting small leaks in the primary of the pipe and then shut down the STP of the affected system to prevent any further leaking Then we only need to put our trust in the secondary system to contain a small amount of product instead of trusting it will contain everything that leaks until it leaks into a sump and sets off the alarm by activating the sensor This has been possible to do for many years but was not practical or reliable The good news is that it is now pressurized line leak detection is the answer It monitors the pressure in the primary product line every time an STP stops and if it drops and can t be accounted for by a temperature change or expansion of the pipe it sets off an alarm in the electronic monitoring system When these systems originally came out they caused a huge number of false alarms but the technology and software has improved drastically and the systems are now working extremely well I installed a system in 2006 at a facility located over a subway system and the system is still in operation today and has not caused a false alarm yet These systems in the right conditions can provide Level 1 or precision leak testing 0 38 litres per hour in as little as 45 minutes of downtime In the first 15 minutes 10 CANADIAN PETROLEUM CONTRACTOR JUNE 2014 CPCA_June14_FINAL indd 10 2014 06 17 1 02 PM
