Facility Description:

The Tesoro Refining and Marketing Company (Tesoro) owns and operates a petroleum refinery near Anacortes, Washington, located at the northern end of March's Point. The Tesoro refinery receives crude oil, catalytic cracking unit feed, and other petroleum derivatives and materials, and ships finished petroleum products, feed stocks, byproducts, intermediates, and wastes via various forms of transportation, and manufactures petroleum fuels and asphalt. The refinery is a designated major source for the air operating permit program because the facility has the potential to emit more than 100 tons of carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, particulate matter less than ten microns in size, volatile organic compounds, and more than 25 tons per year of combined Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP) and more than 10 tons per year of a single HAP. These air pollutants are defined as regulated air pollutants in Chapter 173-401 of the Washington Administrative Code (WAC). The Air Operating Permit is being renewed and has been modified to incorporate revised construction approval orders and new regulations that apply to this type of facility. The Air Operating Permit compiles existing air quality requirements into one document and establishes monitoring, recordkeeping and reporting procedures to assure compliance with those requirements.
