Air-quality permitting and compliance support at pipeline terminals

About this project

client
TransCanada
location
Oklahoma and Texas
completion date
2018

Barr assisted TransCanada (now TC Energy) with various air-quality permitting and compliance projects throughout 2018 and 2019. Our support included preparing air-emission inventories, developing air-quality inspection forms, reviewing inspection procedures, updating compliance plans, reviewing regulatory applicability determinations, calculating potential emissions, creating a monthly emissions-tracking spreadsheet, assessing permitting history, preparing a Part 70 operating permit application, and providing day-to-day regulatory interpretations and support to environmental staff.

Our support resulted in an improved air-compliance program, a thorough understanding of regulatory requirements by TransCanda environmental staff, and improved tools and procedures for ongoing compliance management.
