2 Terminology Permitting Options Application Content Submission Options

3 Pollutants of Concern VOCs: formaldehyde and benzene H 2 S CO NO 2 SO 2 PM 10 and PM 2.5

4 Facility –stationary equipment that emits pollutants Engines Tanks Flares Separators Dehydrators

5 Site – a group of oil and gas facilities at a property Common control Equipment that relies on each other Within ¼ mile

6 Produced water tank Oil tank Gunbarrel Separator Wellhead Andys Site

7 Receptor Residence or other structure which is not used only by the O&G owner/operator Recreational Area

8 Andys PropertyNathans Property Nathans House Andys House Mechanic Shop Andy and Nathans Property

9 De Minimis Permit by Rule Standard Permit State Permit NNSR and PSD Increasing Levels of Emissions De Minimis Permit by Rule Standard Permit State Permit NNSR and PSD

10 Pipeline isolation valve sites meeting certain criteria

11 De Minimis Permit by Rule Standard Permit State Permit NNSR and PSD Increasing Levels of Emissions De Minimis Permit by Rule Standard Permit State Permit NNSR and PSD

12 Must meet all conditions exactly Emission limits in § tpy of VOCs Meet all other applicable federal, state, and local requirements

13 In Barnett Shale counties New - 30 TAC § (a)-(k) Existing – 30 TAC § (l) Not in Barnett Shale counties New & Existing – 30 TAC § (l) May voluntarily register under § (a)-(k)

15 No registration required Meet §106.4 limits Various facilities included Flares follow § Compressors follow §

16 TCEQ sour = 24 ppmv Registration required ¼ mile distance required 4.0 lb/hr limit of sulfur compounds (not including sulfur oxides) Vent height based on sulfur compound limit

17 Notification and registration through ePermits system Notification - Prior to construction or implementation of changes Registration Level 1 - Within 180 days from start of operation Level 2 - Within 90 days from start of operation

18 PBR Level 1 Emission Limits Air ContaminantSteady- state lb/hr < 30 psig periodic lb/hr up to 150 hr/hr 30 psig periodic lb/hr up to 300 hr/yr Total tpy Total VOC15 Total crude oil or condensate VOC Total natural gas VOC ,500 Benzene Hydrogen sulfide Sulfur dioxide Nitrogen oxides Carbon monoxide45100 PM 2.5 /PM

21 Temporary Oil and Gas Facilities (§ ) Stationary Engines and Turbines (§ ) Flares (§ )

22 90-day operation Must flare sour gas (per § ) Reduced sulfur emissions must be < 4 lbs/hr Vent heights must meet § (l) +

24 De Minimis Permit by Rule Standard Permit State Permit NNSR and PSD Increasing Levels of Emissions De Minimis Permit by Rule Standard Permit State Permit NNSR and PSD

25 Standard permit under § Old Standard Permit Non-rule standard permit Applies to new projects and dependent facilities in the Barnett Shale counties Sites in other counties can use it voluntarily

26 Sour sites that cant meet ¼ mile limit in § (l) VOCs are >25tpy VOCs must be speciated using E=L/K Calculation techniques, emissions summary tables, etc. – same as a PBR application

27 Notification & registration online – STEERS (ePermits) system Notify - Prior to construction or implementation of changes Register Within 90 days from the start of operation Impacts – Same as § (a)-(k)

28 ContaminantSteady-state or < 30 psig (lb/hr) ( normal emissions) > 30 psig Periodic (lb/hr) (MSS, loading, etc) Total (tpy) Total VOC250 Total Crude Oil or condensate VOC Total natural gas VOC 7501,635 Benzene Hydrogen sulfide Sulfur dioxide Nitrogen oxides Carbon monoxide PM 10 /PM
