EPA issues final GHG permit to ONEOK for Texas NGL plant expansion

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued a final greenhouse gas (GHG) prevention of significant deterioration (PSD) construction permit to ONEOK Hydrocarbon, officials confirmed on Friday.

The company plans to expand operations at their existing natural gas liquids (NGL) processing plant in Mont Belvieu, Texas.

“EPA will continue working with companies to ensure they have the permits they need,” said EPA regional administrator Ron Curry. “ONEOK and many other companies in Texas have shown that limiting GHG emissions makes good business sense.”

The permit allows the company to construct two new units at their Mont Belvieu facility, which is just east of Houston. The units will use a process called fractionation to process natural gas liquids into products such as propane and butane.

The estimated project cost is $800 million.

After the expansion is complete, the company will add 15 to 25 permanent jobs. EPA issued a previous GHG permit for this facility in July 2013.

EPA has finalized 44 GHG permits in Texas, proposed an additional seven permits, and currently has 19 additional GHG permit applications under review and permit development in Texas.
