59-00025B: EQT Gathering, LLC (625 Liberty Drive, Suite 1700, Pittsburgh, PA 15222) for construction and operation construct two (2) Caterpillar Model G3616, 4-stroke lean burn (4SLB), natural gas fired engine, each with a power rating of 4,735 brake-horsepower (Source IDs P104 and P105) and a 120 million cubic foot per day Exterran triethylene glycol dehydration unit (Source ID P302) at their Tioga Compressor Station located in Duncan Township, Tioga County. The air contaminant emissions from Source IDs P104 and P105 will be controlled by independent Miratech model SP-RESIGA-72S3624x41-20x2/30-XH4B0 oxidation catalysts (IDs C104 and C105). The air contaminant emissions from Source ID P302 will be controlled by an 11.45 million Btu per hour enclosed flare (Control Device ID C302). This is a State Only facility for which an operating permit has not been issued.

 The Department's review of the information contained in the application submitted by EQT Gathering, LLC, indicates that the sources will comply with all applicable air quality requirements pertaining to air contamination sources and the emission of air contaminants, including the fugitive air contaminant emission requirement of 25 Pa. Code § 123.1, the particulate matter emission limitation of 25 Pa. Code § 123.13, the sulfur oxide emission limitation of 25 Pa. Code § 123.21 and the visible emission limitation of 25 Pa. Code § 123.41. Additionally, the Department has determined that the proposed engines satisfy best available technology (BAT) requirements, under 25 Pa. Code §§ 127.1 and 127.12 as well as the Standards of Performance for Stationary Spark Ignition Internal Combustion Engines specified in 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart JJJJ. Under the requirements of BAT, the compressor engines are restricted to emit emissions for the following pollutants at a rate above; 0.50 g/bhp-hr for nitrogen oxide (NOx), 0.14 g/bhp-hr for carbon monoxide (CO), 0.23 g/bhp-hr for volatile organic compounds (VOC, expressed as NMNEHC), and 0.04 g/bhp-hr for formaldehyde. To demonstrate compliance with these limitations, EQT Gathering, LLC will be required to conduct EPA reference method testing on each engine-compressor's exhaust for NOx, CO, VOC, and formaldehyde emissions. EQT Gathering, LLC will be required to perform periodic testing of each engine, every 2,500 hours of operation to verify continuous compliance with the NOx and CO emission limitations. Continuous compliance demonstration will include monitoring of operational parameters of the catalyst. The compressor-engines are also required to use only pipeline quality natural gas as fuel for operation. The plan approval, if issued, will subsequently be incorporated into the state only operating permit via an administrative amendment in accordance with 25 Pa. Code § 127.450 at a later date.

 Based on the findings above, the Department proposes to issue a plan approval with annual emission restrictions for all sources at the Tioga Compressor Station as well as monitoring, recordkeeping and work practice requirements to verify compliance with the annual emission restrictions.

 In addition to the emission limitations above, the following is a summary of the types of conditions the Department intends to place in Plan Approval 59-00025B to ensure compliance with applicable Federal and State regulatory requirements including the best available technology requirements of 25 Pa. Code §§ 127.1 and 127.12.

 Initial and subsequent testing at the exhaust of each engine-compressors using Department-approved methods on an approximate annual basis.

 Monitoring requirement on the inlet and outlet exhaust temperature and differential pressure of catalysts to demonstrate continuous compliance with the destruction efficiency of the catalyst.

 Recordkeeping requirement for engine-compressors' gas usage and operational hours including the records of all required monitoring.

 Work practice requirement to construct and operate in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations and good air pollution control practices, minimize blowdowns and limit the emission of malodors to level undetectable outside the property.

 The potential air contaminate emissions from all sources at the Tioga Compressor Station will be 74.36 tons per year (tpy) for NOx, 26.23 tpy for CO, 38.83 tpy for VOC, 0.29 tpy for sulfur oxide, 4.37 tpy for particulate matter (PM) including PM-10 and PM-2.5, 4.94 tpy for formaldehyde, and 6.88 tpy for hazardous air pollutants (HAP).

 A person may oppose the proposed plan approval, or may provide the Department with additional information to consider in its review, or may request a public hearing, by filing a written protest with the Department at the address listed above. Each written comment must contain the name, address and telephone number of the person submitting the comments, identification of the proposed permit by the permit number listed above and a concise statement regarding the relevancy of the information or objections to the issuance of the permit.

 A 30-day comment period from the date of publication of this notice in the Pennsylvania Bulletin will exist for the submission of comments or protests.

 David M. Shimmel, P.E., Chief, New Source Review Section, may be contacted at 570-327-3568, or at PA DEP Air Quality Program, 208 West Third Street, Suite 101, Williamsport, Pa 17701, for additional information or for the submission of comments or protests.

10-001O: AK Steel Corporation—Butler Works (1 Armco Drive, Butler, PA 16045) for modifications to Plan Approval 10-001M, at their facility in Butler Township, Butler County.

 Under 25 Pa. Code §§ 127.44(b) and 127.424(b), the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) intends to issue Plan Approval 10-001O to AK Steel Corporation for modifications to Plan Approval 10-001M at their Butler Works facility located at 1 Armco Drive, Butler Township, Butler County. The Plan Approval will subsequently be incorporated into the facility's Operating Permit through an administrative amendment in accordance with 25 Pa. Code § 127.450.

 Plan Approval No. 10-001O is for modifications to Plan Approval 10-001M, which was issued by the Department on February 22, 2010 for construction of the Melt Shop Modernization Project, consisting of the #5 Electric Arc Furnace (EAF), Ladle Metallurgical Facility (LMF), and various ancillary sources. On March 22, 2010, AK Steel filed a Notice of Appeal with the Pa. Environmental Hearing Board with regards to Plan Approval 10-001M. Under this Notice of Appeal, and ongoing discussions between the Department and AK Steel, the Department has developed Plan Approval 10-001O as a proposed modification to Plan Approval 10-001M, which addresses a number of the issues raised by the appeal and subsequent discussions between AK Steel and the Department.

 Proposed Plan Approval 10-001O will reestablish carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides (NOx) emission limits associated with the #1/2 Baghouse, through a three (3) year program of stack testing. Final limits will be based on values observed during stack testing, and will not exceed the values used by AK Steel in the PSD/NSR netting analysis previously performed in conjunction with Plan Approval 10-001M (0.05 lb NOx/ton steel produced, 1.0 lb CO/ton steel produced, 50 tpy NOx, 1000 tpy CO). Additionally, the Plan Approval authorizes a 10.8 ton per year increase in allowable emissions of particulate matter; increases short-term VOC emission limits associated with operation of the existing #2 EAF; incorporates changes affecting the applicability of 40 CFR 60 Subpart AAa to the #2 EAF and AOD; control device mapping related to the #1/2 Baghouse; permit language related to production rate requirements for stack testing; requirements related to the simultaneous operation of the #2 and #5 EAFs; monitoring requirements related to natural gas consumption for various sources; monitoring requirements for new and existing cooling towers; recordkeeping requirements for paved and unpaved roads; testing requirements for truck dump stations; and compliance dates for various conditions. The Department has determined that the proposed changes are of minor significance with regards to the PSD/NSR netting analysis previously performed by AK Steel in conjunction with Plan Approval 10-001M.

 The subject source(s) will be subject to the applicable requirements of 40 CFR Subparts AAa (Standards of Performance for Steel Plants: Electric Arc Furnaces and Argon-Oxygen Decarburization Vessels Constructed After August 7, 1983) and IIII (Standards of Performance for Stationary Compression Ignition Internal Combustion Engines). The Plan Approval will contain testing, monitoring, reporting, recordkeeping, and work practice requirements designed to keep the facility operating within all applicable air quality requirements.
