(a) Each owner or operator subject to the emissions limitations in § 60.102a shall comply with the notification, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements in § 60.7 and other requirements as specified in this section.
(b) Each owner or operator subject to an emissions limitation in § 60.102a shall notify the Administrator of the specific monitoring provisions of §§ 60.105a, 60.106a, and 60.107a with which the owner or operator seeks to comply. Notification shall be submitted with the notification of initial startup required by § 60.7(a)(3).
(c) The owner or operator shall maintain the following records:
(1) A copy of the flare management plan and each root cause analysis of a discharge;
(2) Records of information to document conformance with bag leak detection system operation and maintenance requirements in § 60.105a(c).
(3) Records of bag leak detection system alarms and actions according to § 60.105a(c).
(4) For each FCCU and fluid coking unit subject to the monitoring requirements in § 60.105a(b)(1), records of the average coke burn-off rate and hours of operation.
(5) For each fuel gas stream to which one of the exemptions listed in § 60.107a(a)(3) applies, records of the specific exemption determined to apply for each fuel stream. If the owner or operator applies for the exemption described in § 60.107a(a)(3)(iv), the owner or operator must keep a copy of the application as well as the letter from the Administrator granting approval of the application.
(6) The owner or operator shall record and maintain records of discharges greater than 500 lb/day SO2 from any affected fuel gas combustion device or sulfur recovery plant and discharges to an affected flare in excess of 500,000 scfd. These records shall include:
(i) A description of the discharge.
(ii) For discharges greater than 500 lb/day SO2, the date and time the discharge was first identified and the duration of the discharge.
(iii) The measured or calculated cumulative quantity of gas discharged over the discharge duration. If the discharge duration exceeds 24 hours, record the discharge quantity for each 24-hour period. Engineering calculations are allowed for fuel gas combustion devices other than flares.
(iv) For discharges greater than 500 lb/day SO2, the measured or estimated concentration of H2 S, TRS and SO2 of the stream discharged. Process knowledge can be used to make these estimates for fuel gas combustion devices other than flares.
(v) For discharges greater than 500 lb/day SO2, the cumulative quantity of H2 S and SO2 released into the atmosphere. For releases controlled by flares, assume 99 percent conversion of reduced sulfur to SO2. For other fuel gas combustion devices, assume 99 percent conversion of H2 S to SO2.
(d) Each owner or operator subject to this subpart shall submit an excess emissions report for all periods of excess emissions according to the requirements of § 60.7(c) except that the report shall contain the information specified in paragraphs (d)(1) through (7) of this section.
(1) The date that the exceedance occurred;
(2) An explanation of the exceedance;
(3) Whether the exceedance was concurrent with a startup, shutdown, or malfunction of an affected facility or control system; and
(4) A description of the action taken, if any.
(5) A root-cause summary report that provides the information described in paragraph (e)(6) of this section for all discharges for which a root-cause analysis was required by § 60.103a(a)(4) and § 60.103a(b).
(6) For any periods for which monitoring data are not available, any changes made in operation of the emission control system during the period of data unavailability which could affect the ability of the system to meet the applicable emission limit. Operations of the control system and affected facility during periods of data unavailability are to be compared with operation of the control system and affected facility before and following the period of data unavailability.
(7) A written statement, signed by a responsible official, certifying the accuracy and completeness of the information contained in the report.
