AQ1669ORL01 Crowley Fuels LLC, Bethel Bulk Fuel Terminal - Public Notice State of Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation

The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (ADEC) proposes to issue an Owner Requested Limit approval (ORL) AQ1669ORL01 to Crowley Fuels LLC for the Bethel Bulk Fuel Terminal under Alaska Statute 46.14 and regulation 18 AAC 50.



Crowley Fuels LLC, 201 Arctic Slope Avenue, Anchorage, AK 99518



Latitude: 60° 47.1' North Longitude: 161° 40.7' West



Crowley is planning to install internal floating roofs on three gasoline storage tanks (EU IDs 1, 2, and 4) and a vapor combustion unit (VCU) for the North tank truck loading rack (EU ID 21) at the Bethel facility. This public notice is for the draft ORL only.



The potential to emit at the stationary source will not exceed 13 TPY of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) by installing and operating IFRs on EU IDs 1, 2, and 4, and a VCU on EU ID 21, using management practices when dispensing gasoline through fuel nozzles, and submerged loading practices when loading gasoline from the marine header into barges.  By limiting VOC emissions, Crowley avoids the requirement to obtain a Title V permit under 18 AAC 50.326.


ADEC Preliminary Review:

Based on review of the application, ADEC has made a preliminary decision to approve the ORL for the Bethel Bulk Fuel Terminal.


Available Information:

Copies of the ORL application and ADEC’s preliminary approval are available at

ADEC Air Permits Program, 555 Cordova Street, Anchorage, AK 99501.
