Air Permitting

A Roadmap to the Future of Air Quality Permitting

Instructor(s) / Participants

Robert Opiela - Co-Founder, NaviKnow Solutions

Course Date and Time

Thursday, February 7, 2019 - 10:00AM

Course Length

2 Hours

Course Description

In this 2-hour course, you will become aware of the resources and tools available online that can help you expedite the air quality permitting process, where you can go to access them, how to put them into action now, and what paradigm shifts are to come in the future for air quality permitting.

To determine if a project triggers federal or state permitting requirements or the current BACT for a facility, data is needed to answer these questions and many more. The permit application must contain justifications for all selections, claims, and decisions or the permitting review process gets bogged down. Learn what technologies are available today and which ones can be leveraged in the not too distant future that will accelerate the permit application preparation and review processes.

Topics Covered

  • Air Quality Permitting Process
  • Air Emissions Inventory Data
  • Ambient Air Monitoring Data
  • Air Quality Permitting Data

Oil & Gas Air Regulations – What You Need to Focus on Now

Instructor(s) / Participants

Jay Christopher - Senior Scientist, Trihydro
Calvin Niss - Senior Vice President, Trihydro
Chad Flynn - Lead Project IT Professional, Trihydro

Course Date and Time

Thursday, February 7, 2019 - 1:00PM

Course Length

4 Hours

Course Description

The oil and gas sector has seen massive regulatory change since 2016, particularly with respect to air compliance requirements.  Regulations have issued, withdrawn, and modified by multiple regulatory agencies.  In addition, challenges to some of these regulations have been made in the courts.  The end result is a confusing mix of regulations, policies and expectations.

This workshop will provide some clarity and direction about what the oil and gas sector should be doing now.  While not providing formal legal guidance, the workshop will address the compliance challenges confronting upstream and midstream oil and gas companies in meeting EPA and BLM regulations, as well as some evolving issues at the State level.  We will particularly focus on EPA’s New Source Performance Standard (NSPS) OOOOa requirements around the implementation of a volatile organic compound (VOC) and methane leak detection and repair (LDAR) monitoring and reporting program as well as associated with the final Bureau of Land Management (BLM) venting and flaring rule (e.g., Waste Prevention) requirements.  We will also provide some insights and approaches to recordkeeping and reporting approaches under these programs.

Process Heater and Boiler Tune Up Training

Instructor(s) / Participants

Mike Sanders - Principal Engineer, Alpha3 Consulting LLC
John Bacon - Senior Project Manager, TRC Companies, Inc.

Course Date and Time

Thursday, February 7, 2019 - 1:00PM

Course Length

4 Hours

Course Description

Heater and boiler tuning is not a new practice, but with the advent of 40 CFR 63 Subpart DDDDD, or the Industrial, Commercial, and Institutional (ICI) Heater and Boiler MACT Rule, it is required for all affected major source facilities. Despite the initial belief that MACT DDDDD is just another costly EPA regulation, implementation of the work practice standard has provided a wealth of information substantiating that regular heater and boiler tune-ups can save significant costs through improvements in fuel efficiency, energy reduction credits, and safety. More notably, there is a simple payback on the tune-up services within months. Heater and boiler tuning has been described as part science and part intimate knowledge of the equipment’s operational characteristics and process needs. And while many facilities believe their heaters and boilers to be well optimized, compliance tuning efforts have revealed that this is not always the case. Course instructors have a combined, 60-plus years of tuning and environmental regulatory experience which they will share with attendees to better educate industry on the importance of combustion optimization and to help align the efforts of operations/process and environmental departments on practices that benefit both.

In this course, attendees will:

Review the subpart DDDDD Heater and Boiler MACT Regulation;
Cover the technical aspects of combustion tuning;
Review key aspects of combustion engineering and burner performance;
Address the regulatory compliance requirements for tune ups;
Look at MACT DDDDD case studies for which regularly occurring tune ups have been performed;
Discuss the benefits of heater and boiler tuning including cost savings, energy reduction credits, safety, and alignment with organizational values;
Summarize a host of other thermal energy systems that are also beneficial to assess for energy efficiency improvements.
