We are giving public notice that Targa Sound Terminal has filed an application with the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency (the Agency) to terminal (receive, store & ship) up to 151,500,000 gallons per year of natural gasoline, a liquid that comes from natural gas wells and is often blended into motor vehicle gasoline. Targa is already permitted to terminal gasoline, isooctane, Bakken crude oil, and denatured ethanol. The project includes the modification of four existing tanks to enable storage of these products. Gasoline is received by pipeline and the other products by railcar. The permit to terminal natural gasoline would allow an annual average of one unit train per week (107 railcars) to be offloaded from railcars and loaded onto marine vessels.
The emissions associated with this project could total up to 24 tons per year of Volatile Organic Compounds, including 2.8 tons per year of Hazardous Air Pollutants, 1.3 ton/yr of Toxic Air Pollutants, and 186 pounds per year of benzene.
