(Docket No. 07-CA-PA-12)

Pursuant to Hawaii Revised Statutes (HRS), Chapter 342B-13 and Hawaii Administrative Rules (HAR), Chapter 11-60.1, the Department of Health, State of Hawaii (DOH), is requesting public comments on a DRAFT PERMIT presently under review for:

Covered Source Permit (CSP) No. 0220-01-C
Aloha Petroleum, Ltd.
Nine (9) Petroleum Storage Tanks and Tank Truck Load Rack
Located at Barber\u2019s Point Sales Terminal, Campbell Industrial Park, Oahu

The DRAFT PERMIT is described as follows:

Covered Source Permit No. 0220-01-C would grant conditional approval to operate the following equipment at Aloha Petroleum, Ltd. Barber\u2019s Point Sales Terminal:

1. four each 50,000 barrel internal floating roof petroleum storage tanks;

2. one each 35,000 barrel internal floating roof petroleum storage tank;

3. one each 60,000 barrel internal floating roof petroleum storage tank;

4. two each 68,000 barrel internal floating roof petroleum storage tanks;

5. one each 5,000 barrel internal floating roof petroleum storage tank;

6. one each two-lane bottom-loading petroleum tank truck loading rack with four
loading stations, each with five loading arms;

7. one each thermal oxidizer vapor combustion unit with a thirty-five foot exhaust
stack height; and

8. one each carbon absorption vapor recovery unit.

The applicant is proposing to reinstall a vapor recovery unit (VRU) to control the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from the loading operations at the tank truck load rack. Currently, the facility utilizes a vapor combustion unit to control the VOC emissions from the tank truck load rack. The proposal would allow the applicant to operate either the vapor combustion unit or the vapor recovery unit. The VRU will be the primary control device unless the throughput at the load rack is greater than the design limit of the VRU or the VRU is down for maintenance. The maximum design capacity of the VRU is 500,000 gallons per day.

The applicant is also proposing to lower the stack height of the currently permitted vapor combustion unit from 45 feet to 35 feet.

The internal floating roof storage tanks are subject to the federal Standards of Performance for New Stationary Sources, Title 40 CFR, Part 60, Subpart Kb, Standards of Performance for Volatile Organic Liquid Storage Vessels (including Petroleum Liquid Storage Vessels) for which Construction, Reconstruction, or Modification Commenced after July 23, 1984. The tank truck load rack is subject to the federal Standards of Performance for New Stationary Sources, Title 40 CFR, Part 60, Subpart XX – Standards of Performance for Bulk Gasoline Terminals. The draft permit, if approved, will renew and supersede the current operating permit in its entirety.

The ADMINISTRATIVE RECORD, consisting of the APPLICATION and non-confidential supporting materials from the applicant, the permit review summary, and the DRAFT PERMIT, is available for public inspection during regular office hours, Monday through Friday, 7:45 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., at the following location:
