Estimated Daily Recovery Capacity (EDRC) • What is it? • Calculated capacity of oil

Estimated Daily Recovery Capacity (EDRC) • What is it? • Calculated capacity of oil recovery devices • Planning tool designed to identify amount & type of response equipment/capabilities needed to respond to AMPD, MMPD and WCD • Not intended for use in measuring actual recovery • Formulas at 33 CFR 154, App. C & 33 CFR 155, App B

EDRC for Regulated Facilities EDRC = Throughput rate (bbl/hr) x 24 hrs x 20%

EDRC for Regulated Facilities EDRC = Throughput rate (bbl/hr) x 24 hrs x 20% efficiency factor* (33 CFR 154, App. C 6. 2. 1) Throughput rate = Specific collection rate of an oil recovery device (e. g. skimmer), specific to type, capacity, oil thickness (CFR default is ¼ inch) * 20% is regulatory standard efficiency rate. Typically degraded by USCG to account for influencing factors: weathering, daylight, sea conditions, number and skill level of response personnel, encounter and containment rates, etc.

CFR / FRP Requirements 33 CFR 154. 1045(c) requires Group I-IV petroleum facilities to

CFR / FRP Requirements 33 CFR 154. 1045(c) requires Group I-IV petroleum facilities to have available for response to AMPD spill: 1, 000 ft containment boom deployed w/in 1 hr of spill OR Boom twice the length of longest vessel conducting transfers Oil recovery devices and recovered oil storage capacity on site w/in 2 hrs 33 CFR 154. 1045(d) and (e) require that facilities provide for response to MMPD and WCD spills: “Sufficient” boom, oil recovery devices and storage capacity for recovery, on site w/in 6 hrs, 12 hrs
