Form OP-UA49
Vacuum Producing System Attributes
General:
This form is used to provide a description and data pertaining to all vacuum-producing systems in petroleum refineries
with potentially applicable requirements associated with a particular account number and application. Each table number,
along with the possibility of a corresponding letter (i.e., Table 1a, Table 1b), corresponds to a certain state or federal rule.
If the table is not applicable to a vacuum-producing system in a petroleum refinery, then it should be left blank and need
not be submitted with the application. If the codes entered by the applicant show negative applicability to that rule or
sections of that rule, then the applicant does not have to complete the remainder of the tables that correspond to the rule in
question. Further instruction as to which questions should be answered and which questions should not be answered are
located in the “Specific” section of the instruction text. The following is a table included in this form:
Table 1:
Title 30 Texas Administrative Code Chapter 115 (30 TAC § 115)
Subchapter D: Process Unit Turnaround and Vacuum-Producing Systems in Petroleum Refineries
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) primary account number (XX-XXXX-X) and the application
area name from Form OP-1 (Site Information Summary) must appear in the header of each page for the purpose of
identification for the initial submittal. The date of the initial form submittal must also be included and should be consistent
throughout the application (MM/DD/YYYY). Leave the permit number blank for the initial form submittal. If this form is
included as part of the permit revision process, enter the permit number assigned by the TCEQ the area name (from Form
OP-1), the date of the revision submittal, and the account number.
Unit attribute questions that do not require a response from all applicants are preceded by qualification criteria in the
instructions. If the unit does not meet the qualification criteria, a response to the question is not required. Anytime a
response is not required based on the qualification criteria, leave the space on the form blank.
Notwithstanding any qualification criteria in the form instructions or information provided in other TCEQ guidance, the
applicant may leave an attribute question blank (or indicate “N/A” for “Not Applicable”) if the attribute is not needed for
the applicable requirement determinations of a regulation for a unit.
In some situations, the applicant has the option of selecting alternate requirements, limitations, and/or practices for a unit.
Note that these alternate requirements, limitations, and/or practices must have the required approval from the TCEQ
Executive Director and/or the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator before the federal operating
permit (FOP) application is submitted.
