EPA Approves $325M Natural Gas Plant Near Houston

Last week, the EPA issued a final greenhouse gas (GHG) Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) construction permit for the Lone Star NGL facility in Mont Belvieu, TX, just west of Houston. The permit allows the company to build a natural gas processing plant.

The facility will separate natural gas liquids (NGL) into different gas products, including ethane, propane, butanes, and natural gasoline.

The plant will process about 100,000 barrels of NGL per day. In June 2010, EPA finalized national GHG regulations, which specify that beginning on January 2, 2011, projects that increase GHG emissions substantially will require an air permit.

EPA has finalized over 34 GHG permits in Texas, proposed an additional 9 permits, and currently has over 30 additional GHG permit applications under development in Texas.
