ENB Region 8 Completed Applications 03/09/2016

Ontario County

Applicant:

Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company LLC
1001 Louisiana St Ste 1460C
Houston, TX 77002

Facility:

TGP Compressor Station 237
2001 Archer Rd
Clifton Springs, NY 14432 -9349

Application ID:

8-3234-00013/00011

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Hopewell, Ontario County

Project Description:

Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co has submitted an application for renewal of its Title V Facility Permit for Compressor Station 237, located at 2001 Archer Road in the Town of Hopewell, which compresses natural gas for transport through transmission pipelines. The main facility emission sources are a 4000 horsepower and two 2000 horsepower natural gas fired reciprocating compressor engines, along with a 715 horsepower natural gas emergency generator engine. In addition, the facility has other emission sources including a 1.7 million BTU per hour natural gas fired boiler, and sixteen 0.15 million BTU per hour natural gas fired space heaters.

The Title V Facility Permit was originally issued November 23, 1999 and was last renewed effective October 4, 2010. This application for renewal reflects minor changes to the facility's potential to emit due to the retirement of two 295 HP existing Ingersoll-Rand PJVG-8 engines that provided auxiliary power to the facility. With the facility now operating on fully purchased power, the 715 Hp generator was installed under NYCRR Chapter III, Subpart 201 - 6.4(f) Operational Flexibility, to provide emergency electrical power only when necessary. The application also reflects a change to the emission factor (assumed 5 grains/100 dscf instead of 0.205 grains/100 dscf) for sulfur dioxide emission estimation associated with the compressor engines.

The facility remains subject to the requirements of 6NYCRR Part 201-6 (Title V) for Major Stationary Sources due to potential emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and carbon monoxide (CO) in excess of 100 tons per year each, and potential emissions of formaldehyde, a hazardous air pollutant, in excess of 10 tons per year, and potential emissions of 25 tons or more of any combination of hazardous air pollutants.

The facility also remains subject to Part 227-2 Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) standards for NOx emissions, and must continue to meet the current Part 227-2.4(f)(1) NOx emission limit of 1.5 grams per brake horsepower-hour.

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

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(b)(9) and 201-6.3(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.

Persons wishing to inspect the subject Title V files, including the application with all relevant supporting materials, the draft permit, and all other materials available to the DEC (the "permitting authority") that are relevant to this permitting decision should contact the DEC representative listed below.

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Bath, Steuben County

Project Description:

An application has been received by the Department for the renewal of a Title V Air Facility permit for a landfill gas to energy facility adjacent to the New Bath Landfill on Turnpike Road in the Town of Bath. The facility will have three Caterpillar G3520 engines/generators that will be fueled by landfill gas. The renewal include the following considerations and modifications: - Currently two of the permitted three engines have been installed at the facility, producing 3.2 MW of electricity. - The applicable requirements have been updated to include 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart JJJJ and 40 CFR Part 63 Subpart ZZZZ for SI RICE. - The fuel use rate for the engines is being corrected from 431 standard cubic feet per minute (scfm) per engine to 531 scfm per engine. - The interior diameter of emission points 001, 002, 003 is being corrected from 20 inches to 15.5 inches. - A List of Exemption Activities (from NYCRR Part 201) to address an onsite diesel powered standby generator rated for 75 kW. Pursuant to NESHAP 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart IIII, it is subject to recordkeeping requirements.

Emissions from the facility include oxides of nitrogen, sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, particulate matter, non-methane organic carbons, volatile organic carbons and hazardous air pollutants. The permit continues to include federally enforceable conditions which will limit or cap emissions of carbon monoxide below 250 tons per year (Prevention of Significant Deterioration threshold under 6 NYCRR 231-8) and emissions of oxides of nitrogen below 100 tons per year (New Source Review threshold under 6 NYCRR Part 231-6).

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