Air GOP No. 511: Oil and Gas General Operating Permit
On October 15, 2015, the TCEQ issued renewed Oil and Gas General Operating Permits (GOPs) Numbers 511, 512, 513, and 514. The renewed GOPs were proposed on March 6, 2015, and the public comment period closed on April 7, 2015. No substantive changes were made to the GOPs as a result of public comment.
Current permit holders are required to submit an application for a new authorization to operate (ATO) no later than January 13, 2016 if any of the emission units, applicability determinations, or the basis for the applicability determinations are affected by the revisions in the renewed GOPs. If the revisions in the GOPs do not affect your site, a new ATO is not required. For information on how to submit an application for an ATO under GOPs 511, 512, 513, and 514, please refer to the GOP Guidance.
The GOPs contain revisions based on recent federal and state rule changes, including updates to the requirements tables; the addition of terms under 30 TAC Chapter 101, Subchapter H, Division 6 for Highly-Reactive Volatile Organic Compound Emissions under the Cap and Trade Program; the addition of 40 CFR Part 63, Subpart CCCCCC terms for area source gasoline dispensing facilities; the addition of 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart OOOO terms for crude oil and natural gas production, transmission, and distribution facilities; revisions to terms for 30 TAC Chapter 111, Subchapter A, Division 1; revisions to terms for 30 TAC Chapter 117, Subchapters B and D; and revisions to 40 CFR Part 63, Subpart HH. This renewal also corrects typographical errors and updates language for administrative preferences.
Any person affected by this action may petition the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to make an objection; petitions must be filed no later than December 14, 2015.
For additional information about these GOPs, please contact the Air Permits Division at (512) 239-1250.
