A Notice of Intent for the following project submitted in accordance
with R307-401-1, Utah Administrative Code (UAC), has been received for
consideration by the Executive Secretary, Utah Air Quality Board:

Company Name:	Oso Oil & Gas Properties, LLC
Location:	Oso Oil & Gas Properties, LLC: Cave Pad Compressor Station -
Remote location , 8 miles northeast of Helper, Sec 31, T12S, R11E,
Carbon County, UT, Carbon County
Project Description:	Oso Oil and Gas Properties, LLC (Oso), owner and
operator of the Cave Pad natural gas compressor station, located in
remote Carbon County has requested modifications to the existing
Approval Order (AO) (DAQE-AN0142010001-09) by reconfiguring the
compressor equipment package.  Oso would remove the two existing 1,340
hp compressor engines and install two 256 hp engines.  The new plant
will consist of two compressor engines and be capable of producing as
much as 2,500,000 cubic feet of natural gas per day.

Carbon County is an attainment area of the National Ambient Air
Quality Standards (NAAQS) for all pollutants.  New Source Performance
Standard (NSPS), Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT)
regulations, and Title V of the 1990 Clean Air Act apply to this
source.  National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants
(NESHAP) (40 CFR 61) does not apply to this source.

The emissions, in tons per year, will change as follows:
PM10 (+ 0.35), PM2.5 (+ 0.35), NOx (- 28.92), CO (+ 17.32), VOC (+
1.73), HAPs (-0.74)

The changes in emissions will result in the following potential to
emit totals, in tons per year:
PM10 = 0.36, PM2.5 =  0.36, NOx = 9.88, SO2 = 0.02, CO = 19.76, VOC =
4.94, HAPs = 0.46

The completed engineering evaluation and air quality impact analysis
showed that the proposed project meets the requirements of federal air
quality regulations and the State air quality rules.  The Executive
Secretary intends to issue an AO pending a 30-day public comment
period.  The project proposal, estimate of the effect on local air
quality and draft AO are available for public inspection and comment
at the Utah Division of Air Quality, 195 North 1950 West, Salt Lake
City, UT 84116.  Written comments received by the Division at this
same address on or before December 18, 2010 will be considered in
making the final decision on the approval/disapproval of the proposed
project.  Email comments will also be accepted at 
If anyone so requests to the Executive Secretary at the Division in
writing within 15 days of publication of this notice, a hearing will
be held in accordance with R307-401-7, UAC.
