UIC Class II Permit for Salt Water Injection Facilities
Engineering Analytics staff prepared multiple applications for two new wells to be used as UIC Class II injection wells. The North Dakota Industrial Commission (NDIC) Oil and Gas Division permit requirements included potential injection water quality analysis, surrounding well water quality analysis, well bore diagrams, surface equipment schematics, and a well plat completed by a registered surveyor.
Aquifier Protection Permits
Engineering Analytics staff prepared Aquifer Protection Permits (APPs) to demonstrate that the facilities incorporated the Best Available Demonstrated Control Technology (BADCT) into their operations. The permits involved intensive investigation of potential discharge points at the site including valves, pipelines, tanks, pits, and the mines themselves to either document compliance or design required control technologies that could be implemented in a reasonable period of time.
Produced Water Management
Engineering Analytics staff provided produced water disposal solutions for a production facility in Montana to reduce the volume and cost of hauling produced water hauled off site. EA prepared and negotiated a Montana Pollutant Discharge and Elimination System permit for surface discharge. The treated water is discharged to a drainage that intersects a branch of the Yellowstone River one mile downstream. EA also prepared an application to construct and operate an evaporation pond at the same location.
Title V Construction & Operating Permit Applications
Engineering Analytics staff prepared and submitted Title V Construction and Operating Permit Applications for natural gas compression stations regulated under the Colorado Air Pollution Control District. EA was also responsible for preparing emissions inventories, Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) analysis, oversight of stack testing, and response to regulatory comments.
