The Morgan Draw-Crenshaw Hill Compressor Station is located in Section 3, Township 49 North, Range 76 West, Campbell County, Wyoming (23 miles west of Gillette, Wyoming).  The facility compresses coal-bed methane gas for pipeline transmission. The pollutant of primary concern from this facility is Carbon Monoxide (CO).

Chapter 6, Section 3 does not impose new substantive requirements on an air pollution source but does require sources subject to the Operating Permit Program obtain a renewable operating permit that clarifies in a single document which air quality requirements apply to the source and provides methods for assessing the source's compliance with those requirements.

This permit is being modified to incorporate requirements from 40 CFR 60 Subpart OOOOa for Crude Oil and Natural Gas Facilities, and recently issued construction permits and waivers.  This modification reflects estimated increases in yearly potential emissions of the following: 3 tons of particulate matter; 3 tons of PM10 particulate matter; 3 tons of PM2.5 particulate matter; 47 tons of nitrogen oxides (NOx); 97 tons of CO; 28 tons of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs); 2.6 tons of hazardous air pollutants; and 23,235 tons of greenhouse gas equivalents (CO2e).  Only the modified portions of the permit are open for public comment.
