Halyard Energy seeks permit for another Texas power project

Halyard Energy Henderson LLC has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for issuance of an air permit that would authorize construction of the Halyard Henderson Energy Center, to be located near Larue in Henderson County, Texas.

This application was submitted to the TCEQ on Aug. 14, 2014, said the commission in an April 2 notice that was posted to its website on April 7. The notice gave no other details of the project itself.

It listed the developer contact as: Halyard Energy Henderson LLC, Christopher Depodesta, Authorized Representative, (713) 353-8757, 1200 Smith Street, Suite 1600, Houston, Texas 77002-4403.

The TCEQ in January issued a similar notice that Halyard Energy Wharton LLC, had applied last December for an air permit that would authorize construction of a power plant located near El Campo in Wharton County, Texas. The contact information is the same for both companies.

That is the address of Halyard Energy Ventures LLC, which has a pretty basic website that says about the company’s purpose: “Natural Gas Power Development.” Another phrase on the website is “Texas Peaking Power.”
