limitation equal to the product of the unit's annual fuel consumption,

on a  Btu basis,  at a  65 percent capacity  factor multiplied  by the

lesser of 1.20 lbs/mmBtu  or the unit's allowable 1987  sulfur dioxide

emissions rate, divided by 2,000, unless the owner or operator of such

unit has obtained allowances equal to its actual emissions.

   "(6)(A) Unless  the Administrator  has approved  a designation  of

such  facility under section 410,  the provisions of  this title shall

Consumed.-(1) After January 1, 2000, it shall be unlawful for any oil-

and  gas-fired  utility unit  whose  average  annual fuel  consumption

during the period 1980 through 1989 on a Btu basis exceeded 90 percent

in the form of natural gas to exceed an annual  sulfur dioxide tonnage

limitation equal to the  product of the unit's baseline  multiplied by

the  unit's actual  1985 emissions  rate divided  by 2,000  unless the

owner or operator of such unit holds allowances to emit  not less than

the unit's total annual emissions.

   "(2) In  addition to  allowances allocated  pursuant to  paragraph

(1) and  section 403(a)(1)  as basic  Phase II allowance  allocations,

and including 2009, the Administrator shall allocate annually for each

unit subject to the emissions limitation requirements of paragraph (1)

allowances from the reserve created pursuant to subsection

(a)(2) in  an amount equal to the  unit's baseline multiplied by 0.050

lbs/mmBtu, divided by 2,000.

   "(3) In  addition to  allowances allocated  pursuant to  paragraph

(1)   and  section   403(a)(1),   beginning  January   1,  2010,   the

Administrator shall  allocate annually  for each  unit subject  to the

emissions limitation  requirements of  paragraph (1) allowances  in an
