A Notice of Intent for the following project submitted in accordance
with Â§R307-401-1, Utah Administrative Code (UAC), has been received
for consideration by the Director, Utah Division of Air Quality:
Company Name: Gray Canyon Energy, LLC.
Location: Gray Canyon Energy, LLC.: Green River Utah Refinery - 3.2
miles east of Green River, Emery County, UT
Project Description: Gray Canyon Energy, LLC (Gray Canyon Energy) is
requesting to construct a 9,000 barrel per day crude oil petroleum
refinery east of Green River in Emery County. Originally, the NOI was
submitted under the name of Iron Fox Refining LLC but on March 6, 2014
a Name Change request was submitted. The refinery will produce
saleable diesel fuels and kerosene, as well as liquefied petroleum
gas, residual oil, sulfuric acid, and stabilized naphtha. The
facility will include an atmospheric crude distillation unit, a vacuum
distillation unit, distillate hydrotreater, hydrocracker reactor and
fractionator, amine treater, hydrogen plant, sulfur recovery by a wet
sulfuric acid process, flare, several process heaters, tank farm,
truck and rail unloading and loading racks, and wastewater treatment
plant. The refinery will be fueled primarily by a combination of
pipeline quality natural gas and plant fuel gas or line power.
Emery County is an attainment area of the National Ambient Air
Quality Standards (NAAQS) for all criteria pollutants. New Source
Performance Standard (NSPS) 40 CFR 60 Subparts A, Dc, Ja, Kb, GGGa,
QQQ, and IIII, National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air
Pollutants (NESHAP) 40 CFR 61 Subparts A and FF, and Maximum
Achievable Control Technology (MACT) 40 CFR 63 Subpart A and ZZZZ
apply to the refinery. Title V of the 1990 Clean Air Act applies to
the refinery as an area source.
Source wide potential to emit emissions are estimated as follows, in
tons per year: PM10 = 10.31, PM2.5 (subset of PM10) = 5.87, NOx =
14.05, CO = 12.22, SO2 = 22.62, VOC = 27.89, total HAPs = 4.35, and
CO2e = 87,322.
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 July 17, 2014 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 at the Division 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
