Section 505(b)(2) of the CAA authorizes any person to petition the EPA Administrator to object to a title V operating permit within 60 days after the expiration of the EPA’s 45-day review period if the EPA has not objected on its own initiative. Petitions must be based only on objections to the permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the public comment period provided by the state, unless the petitioner demonstrates that it was impracticable to raise these issues during the comment period or unless the grounds for the issues arose after this period. The EPA received the Petitions from the Petitioners dated March 30, 2017 and August 3, 2017, requesting that the EPA object to the issuance of operating permit no. 1560–00295–V1, issued by the LDEQ to YCI in St. James Parish, Louisiana. The Petitioners requested that the Administrator object to the proposed operating permit on several bases which are described in detail in Section IV of the Order. In summary, the issues raised include: Emissions limits for preconstruction purposes were not properly made (various claims, introduction to Order Section IV); and numerous claims concerning monitoring of emissions, such as the Steam Methane Reformer (SMR) carbon monoxide (CO) and Auxiliary Boiler CO emissions (Section IV.A.); claims concerning SMR volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions (Section IV.B.); claims concerning Auxiliary Boiler VOC emissions (Section IV.C.); claims concerning fugitive CO emissions (Section IV.D.), claims concerning truck, railcar, and marine loading VOC emissions (Section IV.E.); claims concerning storage tank VOC and hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions (Section IV.F.); and claims concerning flare VOC, particulate matter (PM), and CO emissions (Section IV.G.). The Order issued on April 2, 2018 responds to all claims in both petitions and explains the basis for the EPA’s decision. Sections 307(b) and 505(b)(2) of the CAA provide that a petitioner may request judicial review of those portions of an order that deny issues in a petition. Any petition for review shall VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:20 May 18, 2018 Jkt 244001 be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit no later than June 11, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The CAA affords the EPA a 45-day period to 
review and object to, as appropriate, operating permits proposed by 
state permitting authorities under title V of the CAA. Section 
505(b)(2) of the CAA authorizes any person to petition the EPA 
Administrator to object to a title V operating permit within 60 days 
after the expiration of the EPA's 45-day review period if the EPA has 
not objected on its own initiative. Petitions must be based only on 
objections to the permit that were raised with reasonable specificity 
during the public comment period provided by the state, unless the 
petitioner demonstrates that it was impracticable to raise these issues 
during the comment period or unless the grounds for the issues arose 
after this period.
    The EPA received the Petitions from the Petitioners dated March 30, 
2017 and August 3, 2017, requesting that the EPA object to the issuance 
of operating permit no. 1560-00295-V1, issued by the LDEQ to YCI in St. 
James Parish, Louisiana. The Petitioners requested that the 
Administrator object to the proposed operating permit on several bases 
which are described in detail in Section IV of the Order. In summary, 
the issues raised include: Emissions limits for preconstruction 
purposes were not properly made (various claims, introduction to Order 
Section IV); and numerous claims concerning monitoring of emissions, 
such as the Steam Methane Reformer (SMR) carbon monoxide (CO) and 
Auxiliary Boiler CO emissions (Section IV.A.); claims concerning SMR 
volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions (Section IV.B.); claims 
concerning Auxiliary Boiler VOC emissions (Section IV.C.); claims 
concerning fugitive CO emissions (Section IV.D.), claims concerning 
truck, railcar, and marine loading VOC emissions (Section IV.E.); 
claims concerning storage tank VOC and hazardous air pollutant (HAP) 
emissions (Section IV.F.); and claims concerning flare VOC, particulate

April 2, 2018 responds to all claims in both petitions and explains the 
basis for the EPA's decision.
    Sections 307(b) and 505(b)(2) of the CAA provide that a petitioner 
may request judicial review of those portions of an order that deny 
issues in a petition. Any petition for review shall be filed in the 
United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit no later
