ENB Region 8 Completed Applications 11/25/2009

Livingston County

Applicant:

Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company
1001 Louisiana St
PO Box 2511
Houston, TX 77002

Facility:

TGP Compressor Station 233
2251 Dow Rd
Piffard, NY 14533

Application ID:

8-2452-00008/00007

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

York, Livingston County


Project Description:

Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co has submitted an application for renewal of its Title V Facility Permit for Compressor Station 233, located at 2251 Dow Road, which compresses natural gas for transport through transmission pipelines. The single facility Emission Unit consists of two 4500 horsepower natural gas fired turbine compressor engines. In addition, the facility has several small emission sources including a 1.3 million BTU per hour natural gas fired boiler, a 0.15 million BTU per hour natural gas fired furnace, and a 145 horsepower natural gas fired emergency generator.

The Title V Facility Permit, originally issued November 23, 1999, was renewed April 15, 2005. The renewed permit was modified effective February 8, 2007. That modification was to include provisions of 40CFR 60.334(h)(3), which removed the requirement for fuel sulfur content monitoring when the fuel is natural gas, and allows for occasional short term emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) in excess of the Part 227-2 Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) 50 part per million standard, when the temperature is below zero degrees Fahrenheit, due to increased fuel requirements for below zero operations. No change in facility operations or equipment is proposed in this application for Title V Permit renewal.

The facility remains subject to the requirements of 6NYCRR Part 201-6 (Title V) for Major Stationary Sources due to potential emissions of carbon monoxide (CO) in excess of 100 tons per year, and to the Part 227-2 Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) 50 part per million standard for Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) emissions for NOx RACT technology installed in 1995.

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to renew the current Permit.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(b)(9) and 201-6.4(c), the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has the authority to bar issuance of any Title V Facility Permit if it is determined not to be in compliance with applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act or 6NYCRR Part 201.
