The report discusses a statistical approach for determining if a planned petroleum refinery expansion can be carried out without increasing fugitive emissions. The random uncertainty of the empirically determined emission factors is taken into account during the determination. The method presented is designed to handle different control strategies in the existing and planned facilities and different strategies for different types of devices (e.g., pumps and valves) if necessary. It is also possible to evaluate different options for reducing emissions to acceptable levels.
