Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Hancock, Delaware County

Project Description:

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a new Air Title V Facility (ATV) Permit for the Millennium Pipeline Company, LLC existing Hancock Compressor Station located on Hungry Hill Road, in the Town of Hancock, Delaware County, NY. This facility is part of the Eastern System Upgrade Project.

A new Solar Titan 130E natural gas fired compressor turbine equipped with SoLoNOx combustion technology will be added to the existing compressor station facility. This turbine will meet the New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) emission limits for turbines found in 40 CFR 60 Subpart KKKK. The addition of the new turbine will cause the facility's potential to emit to exceed the major facility thresholds. Accordingly, the existing Air State Facility permit for the Hancock Compressor Station will be replaced with a Title V facility permit. Since the project emission potential for this modification does not exceed the major facility thresholds in Table 5 of 6 NYCRR Part 231, this project is not subject to review under 6 NYCRR Part 231. The facility is also required to comply with the NSPS leak detection and repair requirements found in 40 CFR 60 Subpart OOOOa. Ancillary emission sources that will be added to the facility include a 1,230 horsepower emergency engine, a 1.2 million BTU per hour gas heater, and a 1,500 gallon lube oil tank. These ancillary emission sources are exempt from permitting requirements as described in 6 NYCRR Subpart 201-3.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(d)(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.
