Draft Federal Part 70 Permit for SoCalGas La Goleta Stationary Source
The Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District (District) has issued a draft federal Part 70 permit to the Southern California Gas Company for the La Goleta stationary source, located at 1171 More Road in Goleta. SoCalGas (a Sempra Energy subsidiary) has owned and operated this plant since the 1940s. Natural gas purchased by SoCalGas from regional oil and gas plants is brought to the La Goleta site, compressed and stored in underground depleted gas reservoirs. During heavy demand periods, this gas is withdrawn from the reservoir, purified, dehydrated, and transferred into sales pipelines. The La Goleta facility is considered a major stationary source for carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds and nitrogen oxides emissions.
This permitting action is the third renewal of the federal Part 70 permit for the facility. Once issued by the District and the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), the Part 70 permit will be valid for three years. The permit will be enforceable by the USEPA and the public.
