ExxonMobil Corporation operates the Inwood Oil Terminal located in Inwood, Town of Hempstead, Nassau County, New York. This facility is engaged in the receipt, storage, blending and distribution of petroleum products and operates 24 hours per day. The Standard Industrial Classification Code for this facility is 5171 - Petroleum Bulk Storage Terminal. The facility operations include: five (5) above ground storage tanks of different volumes containing gasoline, petroleum hydrocarbons and ethanol; and a truck loading rack with six (6) bays that is used to transfer petroleum products from the tanks to the trucks. A vapor recovery unit controls the vapors from the loading of gasoline into the storage tanks and trucks.

The facility has been and continues to be capped below the applicability threshold of the federal NESHAP rule for gasoline distribution, 40 CFR 63 Subpart R. The facility shall not exceed a gasoline throughput of 400,000,000 gallons per rolling twelve-month period. The facility shall not exceed a distillates throughput of 75,000,000 gallons per rolling twelve-month period. In addition, the facility's boiler is subject to 6 NYCRR Part 227.2.

This modification to the Inwood Oil Terminal's Title V permit seeks to incorporate the modifications necessary for the facility to comply with New York State requirements to end the use of Methyl Tert Butyl Ether (MTBE) and to establish federally enforceable emission limits for Emission Units 1-Tanks and 1-Rack1 to ensure the non-applicability of 6 NYCRR Part 231-2. To cap out of Part 231-2, the facility will not exceed emissions of 72.7 tons of volatile organic compounds (VOC)  from Emission Unit 1-Rack1 or emissions of 21.5 tons of VOC from Emission Unit 1-Tanks per rolling twelve-month period.
