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.

The New LNG Imperative

Register Now

The shale gas boom established the US as the world’s leading natural gas producer and is responsible for billions of dollars of investments in the US gas processing industry. Since 2012, the US has witnessed unprecedented growth in new gas processing capacity and infrastructure. This rise is due to greater production of domestic shale gas, which is providing cheap, available feedstock to fuel the domestic gas processing, LNG and petrochemical industries. New gas processing projects include the construction of billions of cubic feet per day of new cryogenic and gas processing capacity, NGL fractionators, multi-billion-dollar pipeline infrastructure projects, and the development of millions of tons per year of new LNG export terminal construction. Attend this webcast to hear from Lee Nichols, Editor/Associate Publisher, Hydrocarbon Processing, Scott Allgood, Director-Data Services, Energy Web Atlas and Peregrine Bush, Senior Cartographic Editor, Petroleum Economist as they discuss the future of LNG and the application of Energy Web Atlas, a web-based GIS platform which allows users to track real-time information for every LNG project.
