Abstract
This report provides the necessary guidance for development of regulations to limit emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from petroleum refinery equipment leaks. Equipment considered includes pump seals, compressor seals, seal oil degassing vents, pipeline valves, flanges and other connections, pressure relief devices, process drains, and open ended pipes. Reasonably available control technology (RACT) for these sources consists of a routine monitoring schedule to locate leaks so that maintenance can be performed as possible and emissions of VOC to atmosphere reduced. An example cost analysis for implementing these controls in a model refinery is presented along with a methodology for evaluating the cost effectiveness of these controls when updated emission factors become available.
