Oudalle

Oudalle

Oudalle is the TOTAL Group’s special fluids production site in Europe. The plant is in Seine-Maritime (76), near Le Havre, in France.

  • The Oudalle plant is a “specialities refinery”: it produces a wide range of high value-added hydrocarbon products implementing state-of-the-art technologies;
  • The facility is classified under the Seveso II Directive (high threshold). It operates non-stop (24 hours/day) on the basis of six-year cycles. It is subject to the same requirements and regulations as a traditional refinery.

The Oudalle Plant: From procurement to shipping

This facility mainly produces petroleum cuts and bases using products supplied by TOTAL refineries and other companies.

Raw materials are supplied to the site by pipelines, sea carriage (barges and ships) and road (tankers).

The transformed products are then dispatched to our customers’ sites:

  • by road, from the two truck loading bays inside the plant;
  • by sea (the plant has a docking facility for barges and ships);
  • by sea (the plant has a docking facility for barges and ships);
  • by rail.

The Oudalle Plant:120 products resulting from the transformation of hydrocarbons

Some products are packed in barrels and 1,000-litre containers at the plant.

The Oudalle plant’s commitment to safety, quality and the environment

Safety: Safety of operations and health are priority focuses for the TOTAL group. The health and safety aspects of products are given consideration from the design and development of our products. At its Oudalle site, TOTAL SPECIAL FLUIDS began implementing a Safety Management System (SIES, MP 170) in January 1999. This management tool is used to monitor losses relative to people, equipment, materials and the environment.
The Safety Management System MP/170 has been level-3 certified since 2003.

Inspection: in 1998, the Inspection department was recognized by the regional directorate for industry, research and the environment (now the DREAL).

Quality: TOTAL Special Fluids has had a formal quality procedure since 1990 and the plant obtained ISO 9001 version 2000 certification in 2003.

Environment: TOTAL SPECIAL FLUIDS implements an environmental management policy to reduce the impact of operations in terms of:

  • atmospheric emissions,
  • waste water,
  • soil and groundwater quality,
  • generated waste,
  • sound and odour nuisance, visual integration of the site into the surroundings, and energy consumption.

Regard is had for the environmental aspect of products and potential risks right from the design stages.
The environmental aspects of the plant’s operations are identified. Any significant impacts on the environment are defined and measured to determine those that can be controlled.
Regulatory provisions and legal or other requirements are identified and managed. Compliance with such requirements by the Oudalle plant is checked on a regular basis.
This policy led to ISO 14001 certification obtained in 1997, which has been regularly renewed ever since.
