CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A draft of a new state air quality permit for natural gas activities will be released next month.
The West Virginia Division of Air Quality’s new G80-A general permit would cover control and prevention of air pollution related to natural gas production, compressor and/or dehydration facilities.
The division plans to release the draft Feb. 5 at the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection’s headquarters in Charleston. A general overview will be provided during a morning session. More technical information will be provided during an afternoon session.
The DEP says two existing air quality permits covering natural gas activities will continue. But future registrations, modifications or administrative updates won’t be allowed. Modification of an existing registration covered by these permits will have to be done under the new permit.
