Draft Federal Part 70 Permits for the E&B Natural Resources Management Corporation South Cuyama Stationary Source
The Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District (District) has issued three draft federal Part 70 permits for E&B Natural Resources Management Corporation (E&B) facilities that are part of the South Cuyama Stationary Source.
The South Cuyama Stationary Source is an oil and gas production operation located approximately three miles southwest of the town of New Cuyama. The South Cuyama Stationary Source is considered a major source for emissions of reactive organic compounds and carbon monoxide.
This action is the renewal of the three federal Part 70 permits for the South Cuyama Stationary Source noted above. No changes to facility operations or emissions will occur as a result of this action. Once issued by the District and the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), the renewed permits will be valid for three years. All permits are enforceable by the USEPA, the District, and the public.
