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:
Wesco Operating, Inc.
Location: Cane Creek Unit 32-1-25-19 - Sec 32 T25S R19E, Grand County, Utah
Project Description: Wesco Operating, Inc. (Wesco) has requested a new Crude Oil and Natural Gas Production Tank Battery named Cane Creek Unit 32-1-25-19, aka Dubinky 32. Produced fluids flow to the surface from a well. To separate the oil, water, and gas a heater/treater is used. The oil and water are stored in tanks prior to being transported off site by trucks. The gas is used as fuel for the on-site equipment or routed to a flare device since a sales pipeline is not available in the area. This facility will process up to 17,570 barrels of crude oil per year.
The source is located in Grand County, which is an attainment area for all criteria pollutants. New Source Performance Standard 40 CFR 60 Subpart A and OOOOa regulations apply to this source. National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants 40 CFR 61 and Maximum Achievable Control Technology 40 CFR 63 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 = 0.01, PM2.5 (subset of PM10) = 0.01, NOx = 1.17, CO = 4.78, VOC = 23.41, HAPs = 0.23, and CO2e = 2,078.
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, Utah 84116. Written comments received by the Division at this same address on or before May 20, 2017 will be considered in making the final decision on the approval/disapproval of the proposed project. Email comments will also be accepted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If anyone so requests to the Director in writing within 15 days of publication of this notice, a hearing will be held in accordance with R307-401-7, UAC. Under Section 19-1-301.5, a person who wishes to challenge a Permit Order may only raise an issue or argument during an adjudicatory proceeding that was raised during the public comment period and was supported with sufficient information or documentation to enable the Director to fully consider the substance and significance of the issue.
