DESIGN PRACTICES December 2004

1 INTRODUCTION

The purpose of the Offsites Design Practices Manual is to give the designer the benefit of extensive ExxonMobil experience and
know-how by presenting the selection criteria, design considerations, correlations and calculation procedures which have been
developed over a period of decades. These techniques are by no means exclusive, and are to be used as a guide, rather than as a
“cook book.”

1.1 USE OF THE DESIGN PRACTICES

Subsections of the Manual updated or added after 1994 have been reviewed to assure that they satisfy the expectations of the
Corporation’s Operations Integrity Management System (OIMS). DP subsections are defined to have OIMS impact, if an exception
could lead to an increase in the risk of a safety, health, or environmental incident.
S Assigned to portions of practices containing information whose primary purpose is avoidance of personnel and operational safety
incidents. Any deviation from such designated portions of practices requires formal review and approval according to local safety
policy.
Personnel Safety: Refers to the avoidance of recordable personnel injuries - e.g., burns, cuts, abrasions,
inhalation, or exposure to dangerous substances, etc., that can result in medical treatment,
restricted work, lost-time incidents, or fatalities.
Operational Safety: Refers to the prevention and control of process releases, fires, explosions, etc.

E Assigned to portions of practices containing information whose primary purpose is driven by environmental considerations.
Environmental considerations typically include designs intended to protect against emissions/leakage to the air, water, and/or soil.
Deviations from such portions of practices require formal review and approval according to local environmental policy.
OIMS impact of DP subsections is subject to the following qualifications:
A. DP subsections generally do not have OIMS impact unless they provide specific formula, nomographs, or detailed
circulation methods that are translated into equipment or facilities specifications or operating practices.
B. DP subsections do not have OIMS impact if detail design is governed by codes, standards, or Company practices
(International or Regional practices, for example).
C. DP subsections do not have OIMS impact if they are tutorial in nature.

S,E Portions of practices that have OIMS impact and satisfy the preceding qualifications are marked with an S or E letter code, and
a vertical stripe in the left-hand margin.

An S or E marking adjacent to the title of a table, figure, or subsection without the vertical stripe indicates that the entire portion
of the practice has OIMS impact.

These markings are provided to help affiliates in the application of the practices by identifying where special care is urged when
taking an exception or deviation. Users should consider implementing a process for justifying, approving, and recording deviations
from S or E designated practices, such as reviews by the local safe operating committee or environmental steward. Following is a
suggested basis for this procedure:
Justification - Describe the local operating, business, or other factors that support the deviation.
Approval - Formal approval is required on designs for approved/authorized projects. However, no formal approval is
required for screening studies.
Recording - All deviations shall be logged in the project or design file.

This information is considered CONFIDENTIAL and shall not be released to or discussed with any persons except (a) employees of ExxonMobil
Affiliates who have an appropriate research agreement with ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company (EMRE), and (b) consultants,
contractors, or employees of third parties with whom proper secrecy agreements have been executed with EMRE or such ExxonMobil Affiliates.

DESIGN PRACTICES December 2004

The design of safe, operable, and economical plant equipment is facilitated by the application of:
· Fundamental engineering principles and calculation procedures, such as those covered in college textbooks and in
the technical literature, or those learned through ExxonMobil’s engineering research and development.
· Knowhow, selection criteria, practical considerations, empirical factors, etc., gained from experience in the plants of
ExxonMobil affiliates. These factors can sometimes be controlling; for example, in cases where applicable
fundamental information is very limited or difficult to obtain.
· Business or owner preferences, which affect the economics of the project through such things as policy concerning
service factor vs. plant size, flexibility, preinvestment for later expansion, standardization of parts, preferred sources of
supply, and so on.
· Engineering judgment and an awareness of the influence of outside factors, for example, how the need for control of
noise or environmental emissions will affect the design.
References are made by the Offsites Design Practices to ExxonMobil Global Practices. Beginning with the 2001 practice updates,
the name International Practices (IPs) has been changed to the Global Practices (GPs). For reference purposes, these terms, as
well as identifiers such as IP and GP, shall be considered synonymous.

1.2 METRIC CONVERSION

The Offsites Design Practices include SI Metric units (referred to as Metric) together with U.S. Customary units (referred to as
Customary), presented to best suit the editorial format:
1. a. Customary units given first, followed by equivalent values in Metric units in parentheses,
2. b. Customary units / Metric units tabulated
3. c. Customary units tabulated, with appropriate conversion values to SI footnoted.
Exceptions to the above conventions, e.g., Metric first then (Customary), will be noted in the Scope section of the DP Section
involved.
Where metric values are shown as “Acceptable Metric Equivalents," the guidelines used in developing the converted (metric)
values were:
4. a. Metric values consistent with the implied or specified precision of the customary unit values.
5. b. Metric values consistent with numerical statements given in cross-referenced codes, standards, specifications -
which in themselves have converted dual-dimensioned values.
6. c. Recognition of manufacturing practices in those countries where the International System of Units (SI) is now, or
will become, the conventional system.

1.3 PRACTICE FEEDBACK

The Offsites Design Practices are continually being revised through the addition of new material from R&D work, or through the
correction of existing material where experience shows this to be necessary. Feedback from users of the manual is appreciated,
