Ontario County

Applicant: Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co
1001 Louisiana St
Houston, TX 77002
Facility: Tgp Compressor Station 237
2001 Archer Road
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. Facility Emission Units identified in the application are: R-23701, consisting of two 2000 horsepower natural gas fired reciprocating compressor engines; and R-23702, a 4000 horsepower natural gas fired reciprocating compressor engine.  In addition, the facility has other emission sources including a 1.3 million BTU per hour natural gas fired boiler, sixteen 0.15 million BTU per hour natural gas fired space heaters, and two 295 horsepower natural gas fired auxiliary engines.

The Title V Facility Permit was originally issued November 23, 1999.  No change in operations is proposed in the 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 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.

The facility also remains subject to Part 227-2 Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) standards for Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) emissions for NOx RACT technology installed in 1995, and will install emission control upgrades to its compressor engines before April 1, 2005 to meet the Part 227-2.4(f)(2)(i) NOx emission limit of 1.5 gram per brake horsepower-hour which replaces the current limit of 3.0 grams effective April 1, 2005.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 2016.4(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.

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.  It is recommended that an appointment be made to confirm the availability of the subject files.  The DEC will endeavor to make the files available within 2 business days of contact, during normal business hours (8:30 am through 4:45 pm), unless the requestor wishes to inspect the files at a later date.

DEC will evaluate the application and the comments received on it to determine whether to hold a public hearing.  A public hearing may be legislative or adjudicatory.  A legislative public hearing is a proceeding which provides an additional opportunity for public comment.  DEC's determination to hold a legislative public hearing will be based on whether a significant degree of public interest exists.  If a legislative public hearing is to be held, a Notice of Hearing will be published which will include the time and place of the hearing and submitting comments.  The applicant and all persons who  have filed comments on the permit will be notified by mail of the public hearing.  Comments and requests for a legislative public hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below.

An adjudicatory public hearing is a trial type proceeding which provides the opportunity for adjudication on the basis of evidence, including direct testimony and cross examination.  An adjudicatory hearing is held only if substantive and significant issues relating to any findings or determinations the Department is required to make pursuant to the Environmental Conservation Law exist.  A copy of the Department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department web site at:
