A Notice of Intent for the following project submitted in accordance with R307-401-1, Utah Administrative Code (UAC), has been received for consideration by the Director:
Company Name: LINN Operating, Inc.
Location: LINN Operating, Inc.- ABBOTT FEE 6-6-54 SENW Sec 6 T5S R4W, Duchesne County, UT, Duchesne County
Project Description: LINN Operating, Inc. (LINN) has requested a new Approval Order for the ABBOTT FEE 6-6-54 Crude Oil & Natural Gas Production Tank Battery. Natural gas fired pump-jack engine(s) will bring produced fluids to the surface from one or more wells. Heater treaters will separate the oil, water, and gas. The oil and water will be stored in tanks prior to being transported off site by trucks. The gas will be used as fuel for the on site equipment or will be routed to a sales pipeline and shipped off site. This source will process up to 8,395 barrels (1 barrel = 42 gallons) of crude oil per year.
The source is located in Duchesne County, which is an unclassified area for ozone and an attainment area for all other criteria pollutants. New Source Performance Standards (40 CFR 60 Subparts A and JJJJ) and Maximum Achievable Control Technology (40 CFR 63 Subparts A and ZZZZ) regulations apply to this source. National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants 40 CFR 61 regulations do not apply to this source. Title V of the 1990 Clean Air Act does not apply to this source.
The potential emissions, in tons per year, will be as follows: PM10 = 0.62, PM2.5 (subset of PM10) = 0.62, NOx = 8.84, SO2 = 0.02, CO = 8.87, VOC = 8.50, HAPs = 1.52, and CO2e = 5,356.
The completed engineering evaluation and air quality impact analysis showed that the proposed project meets the requirements of federal air quality regulations and the State air quality rules. The Director intends to issue an Approval Order pending a 30-day public comment period. The project proposal, estimate of the effect on local air quality and draft Approval Order are available for public inspection and comment at the Utah Division of Air Quality, 195 North 1950 West, Salt Lake City, UT 84116. Written comments received by the Division at this same address on or before April 13, 2017 will be considered in making the final decision on the approval/disapproval of the proposed project.
