(1) Excludes emissions from natural gas pilots and purges.
(2) Pilot gas (NG) rates are 4,800 scfd each for North and South Flares.
(3) Purge gas (nitrogen) rate is 0.00395 mmscfh.
(4) Flare header pressure greater than water seal setpoint, corroborating flow.
(5) Raw flow representative of flows between 0.1 - 275 ft/s per 12-11-501.2 and 40CFR60.107a(f)(1)(ii).
