Air Pollution Emission Notice (APEN) Forms
Use an APEN to apply for a new permit; request a modification to an existing permit; complete a routine (five-year) renewal for an existing permitted source or report changes in emissions, production or equipment.
Form APCD-205
Condensate is defined as hydrocarbon liquid with an API gravity greater than or equal to 40.
Form APCD-210
Crude oil is defined as hydrocarbon liquid with an API gravity less than 40.
Form APCD-207
Form APCD-212
Attach this form to your storage tank APEN if you need to report additional wells.

General Permits for Storage Tanks
General Permits offer a streamlined approach to air emissions permitting. Review the general permit to determine if your equipment and facility meet the applicability requirements. 
GP08 can be used for condensate, crude oil or produced water.
Operating and Maintenance Plans
An O&M plan is required for all process units with emission controls at a synthetic minor or major stationary source. Visit the Oil and gas Operating & Maintenance Plan forms page for guidance and more information.
Form APCD-304
Form APCD-308
Form APCD-307
The division will consider, on a case-by-case basis, alternative emissions control equipment to meet control requirements of Regulation No. 7. The operator must obtain approval to use the alternative emissions control equipment prior to use.
Refer to PS Memo 15-03 for pollution control equipment requirements of Regulation No. 7, Section XVII, including alternative controls.
