NuStar Energy requests a modification to their air quality permit in Application #0500-M4

The applicant is requesting a modification to Permit #0500-M3-3AR.  The proposed changes are associated with the New Mexico Biodiesel Blend Mandate, which will require all diesel fuel sold for use in on-road motor vehicles to state agencies, political subdivisions of the state and public schools to contain at least 5% biodiesel (B5)

The permit will be updated to include the following changes to product storage and loadout:

  • Tank 3M1 will be converted to store pure biodiesel (B100).
  • Tank 10M2 will be converted to a slop tank.
  • Approximately 18 fugitive components will be added, all in light liquid service, to complete the following:
    • Extend the two slop lines from 3M1 to 10M2;
    • Build a fill and load line from the offloading skid;
    • Install new lines from 3M1 to the diesel loadout arms at the truck rack; and
    • Build new ethanol and B100 offloading skids.
