CNX Gas Company’s Mamont Impoundment Facility: A Closer Look at Potential Emissions

Bell Township, PA – As CNX Gas Company LLC gears up for its Mamont Impoundment facility, a detailed analysis of the potential emissions has been a critical part of the environmental considerations. The company has been transparent about the types of emissions expected from the storage tanks, providing a comprehensive breakdown above.

Emissions Breakdown

The facility’s potential emissions are a key focus, ensuring that they remain within the acceptable thresholds set by environmental regulations. The summary of potential emissions from the Mamont Impoundment facility provides insight into the types and quantities of pollutants that could be released into the air. Here’s a closer look at the figures:

  • Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs): The total potential emission of VOCs is estimated to be 1.10 pounds per day, translating to 0.28 tons per year (tpy).
  • Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs): The summary also outlines specific HAPs, including Trichlorobenzene, Benzene, and Chloroform, among others, with their respective daily and annual potential emission rates.

These potential estimated emissions are calculated using TOXCHEM software.

Compliance with Environmental Standards

CNX’s submission of this emissions data is part of their request for determination (RFD) to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP), which has confirmed that exemption has been granted. Going forward the company has also committed to eliminating the use of methanol in field operations, which is expected to reduce estimated emissions further assuming it is not replaced.

Ensuring Public Health and Safety

The estimated potential emission rates are estimated to be within the regulatory limits.
