In the last opportunity for the public to comment on Max Midstream Texas’ application for an air permit, many attendees questioned the regulatory agency about the permitting process at a Tuesday hearing.

The hearing, which was held by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, came as nearly 90 people asked the commission to hold a hearing to address concerns with an air permit the Houston-based oil exporter is seeking for expansion of its Seahawk terminal at the Calhoun Port Authority.
