Our look at
MARCELLUS GAS FACILITIES

Once the gas is extracted from deep in the Marcellus Shale, it needs to be processed and piped to market. Therefore, in addition to a vast network of gas pipelines, there need to be other gas processing facilities such as compressor stations to move the gas, and plants that extract the gas liquids.

natural gas compressor
Natural gas compressor

  Since Marcellus Shale gas is "wet gas" (rich in gas liquids) in many areas, things such as propane, butane and ethane are extracted from the gas stream before the remaining methane is "pipeline ready." Here we take a firsthand look at gas processing facilities and gas plants that have been built to process Marcellus Shale natural gas and its derivatives; profitable gas liquids.
 

UPDATES

PA. RELEASES WILLIAMS'
COMPRESSOR EXPLOSION REPORT

April 15, 2012 – A worker who heard gas flowing from an open valve on a Susquehanna County compressor engine pulled an emergency shutdown switch as he evacuated the station, stopping the flow of gas to the building just before it exploded, according to a report by Williams Partners released Friday by state regulators.

The report detailing events before and after the blast and fire at the Lathrop compressor station in Springville Twp. on March 29 was submitted to the Department of Environmental Protection on April 7. The incident also raised concerns about the safety and oversight of the natural gas infrastructure which, because it is in a rural area, is not regulated like pipelines and compressors in more populated places.

Permitted total facility allowed emissions are:
NOx - 38.94 TONS per year
VOC - 12.40 TONS per year
CO - 49.02 TONS per year
The emission figures above are for the original two compressors,
with four compressors these amounts would double to:
NOx - 77.88 TONS per year
VOC - 24.80 TONS per year
CO - 98.04 TONS per year
   According to the next door neighbor, "It is lit up like a Walmart parking lot at night." A recent visitor to the house next door reported bad odors and loud noise from this compressor station and wondered aloud, "How can people live next to this? What are they breathing?"

63-00983A: Columbia Gas Transmission Co. (1700 MacCorkle Avenue, Charleston, WV 25314-1518) for construction and temporary operation of two (2) new natural gas-fired compressor turbines at their Redd Farm Compressor Station in Amwell Township, Washington County. In accordance with 25 Pa. Code §§ 127.44, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is providing notice that it intends to issue a Plan Approval to Columbia Gas Transmission Company (1700 Mac-Corkle Avenue, Charleston, WV 25314-1518) for the construction and temporary operation of two (2) new natural gas-fired compressor turbines at its Redd Farm Compressor Station located in Amwell Township, Washington County. Equipment at this facility includes two (2) natural gas fired Solar Turbines each rated at 4,700 bhp, one (1) natural gas fired emergency generator rated at 440 bhp, one (1) Indirect-fired Heat Exchanger rated at 0.75 MMBtu/hr, and forty (40) Catalytic Space Heaters each rated at 72,000 Btu/hr or Bruest 12-60 each rated at 30,000 Btu/hr.

Potential emissions from the emission sources at this facility are based on operation for 8,760 hours per year for all sources except the emergency diesel generator which has a limit of 500 hours per year. This facility has the potential to emit the following type and quantity of air contaminants (on an annual basis): 45.0 tons of NOx, 96.5 tons of CO, 5.0 tons of VOC, 3.0 tons of PM10, 3.0 tons of PM2.5, 0.30 ton of SOx, 0.4 ton of HCHO, 0.7 ton of HAP, and 52,500 tons of greenhouse gases.

The facility is subject to applicable requirements of 40 CFR Part 60, Parts 63 and 98, and 25 Pa. Code Chapters 121—145. The proposed Plan Approval contains applicable emission limits, as well as testing, monitoring, record keeping, reporting, and work practice requirements. Copies of the application, DEP’s analysis and other documents used in the evaluation of the application are available for public review during normal business hours at the Department’s Southwest Regional Office, 400 Waterfront Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15222. Appointments for scheduling a review must be made by calling 412-442-4000. Any person may submit comments or object to the operating permit or a proposed condition thereof by filing a written protest with the Department at the Southwest Regional Office. A 30-day comment period, from the date of this publication, will exist for the submission of comments. A protest to a proposed action shall be filed with the Department within 30 days of the date that notice of the proposed action was published under 25 Pa. Code § 127.424 (relating to public notice). A protest shall include the name, address and telephone number of the person filing the protest, identification of the proposed permit issuance being opposed (PA-63-00983A) and a concise statement of the objections to the permit issuance and the relevant facts upon which the objections are based. A public hearing may be held, if the Department, in its discretion, decides that such a hearing is warranted based on the information received. All persons who have properly filed a protest under 25 Pa. Code § 127.426 may appear and give testimony. The applicant, the protestant and other participants will be notified of the decision to hold a hearing by publication in the newspaper or by the Pennsylvania Bulletin, or by telephone, where the Department determines such notification by telephone is sufficient. Written comments, protests and requests for a public hearing should be directed to Jesse Parihar, Air Quality Engineering Specialist, Department of Environmental Protection, Southwest Region, 400 Waterfront Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15222.

CHAPTER 59. GAS SERVICE
SERVICE AND FACILITIES

§ 59.11. Accidents.

(a) General. Each public utility shall submit a report of each reportable accident involving the facilities or operations of the public utility in this Commonwealth as provided in this section. The reports shall be addressed to the Secretary of the Commission.

(b) Reportable accidents. Reportable accidents are those involving utility facilities or operations which result in one or more of the following circumstances:

(1) The death of a person.

(2) Injury to a person sufficient that the injured person requires immediate treatment at a hospital emergency room or in-patient admittance to a hospital, or both.

(3) An event that involves a release of gas from a pipeline or of LNG or gas from an LNG facility, which results in estimated property damage, including the cost of gas lost of the operator or others, of at least $50,000 in market value.

(4) An event that results in an emergency shutdown of an LNG facility.

(5) An occurrence of an unusual nature that is a physical or cyber attack, including attempts against cyber security measures as defined in Chapter 101 (relating to public utility preparedness through self certification) which causes an interruption of service or over $50,000 in damages, or both.

(c) Exceptions. Injuries, as defined in subsection (b)(1) and (2), may not include those suffered as a result of a motor vehicle accident with utility facilities unless one or both of the following circumstances apply:

(1) A vehicle involved in the accident is owned by the utility or driven by a utility employee while on duty.

(2) Some or all of the injuries were as a result of contact with natural gas facilities transporting or storing natural gas or due to gas escaping from natural gas facilities.

(d) Telephone reports. A report by telephone shall be made immediately after the utility becomes aware of the occurrence of a reportable accident under subsection (b)(1), (3), (4) and (5). A report by telephone shall be made within 24 hours after the utility becomes aware of a reportable accident under subsection (b)(2).

(e) Written reports. A written report shall be made on Form UCTA-8 within 30 days of the occurrence of a reportable accident. For reportable accidents under subsection (b)(5), a utility may remove from Form UCTA-8 information that would compromise the security of the utility or hinder an active criminal investigation. Accidents reportable on forms required by the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, Department of Labor and Industry, or the United States Department of Transportation, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration,

may be reported to the Commission by filing a copy of the forms in lieu of a report on Form UCTA-8, as long as the alternative forms, at a minimum, provide the following information:

(1) The utility name.

(2) The date of the reportable accident.

(3) The date of the report.

(4) The location where the reportable accident occurred.

(5) The name, age, residence and occupation of the injured or deceased parties.

(6) The general description of the reportable accident.

(7) The name and telephone number of the reporting officer.

(f) Form availability. Blank UCTA-8 forms are available for download on the Commission’s web site.
