This Wednesday, GASP and Clean Air Council will provide information about air quality issues and health impacts associated with natural gas development. We’ll discuss the proposed expansion of the MarkWest Welling Compressor Station, in Buffalo Township (Washington County), and provide details on how the public can comment on this station.
This facility expansion would result in a station with 11 compressor engines, a dehydrator/reboiler, 3 condensate tanks, 2 other storage tanks, and other various smaller engines and pieces of equipment. As planned, this facility would emit 49.2 tons per year (TPY) of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), 60.81 TPY of Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), and 89,422 TPY of Carbon Dioxide equivalent (CO2e). Some of these emissions projections are just under limits that would trigger more stringent air pollution control requirements. This is your chance to tell the state what you think about this compressor station expansion, so please attend, and bring all of your questions for our experts. Contact Lauren for more information.
