Control valves created excessive back pressure on the compressors at PCLA, which resulted in the compressor pressure control valve opening to the flare syste
Corrected controls for the pressure control valves for the first part of the flaring event and closed a block valve for the second part of the flaring event; report stated that the release was preventable, but eplained that the flaring from 10:17am to 1:49pm was not preventable because a level instrument was reading incorrectly, which allowed the gas to the flare system.
