SCS Technical Bulletin: Summary of Proposed Oil and Gas NSPS, November 2015

Summary of Proposed Oil and Gas NSPS U.S. EPA promulgated an amended Standards of Performance for Crude Oil and Natural Gas Production, Transmission and Distribution (NSPS). Specifically, EPA proposed amendments to 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 60, Subpart OOOO and proposed an entirely new Subpart OOOOa. EPA also promulgated a draft control technique guidelines (CTGs) document for the oil and natural gas industry. The CTG is intended to provide state, local and tribal air agencies with information to assist them in determining reasonably available control technology (RACT) for reducing volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions from select oil and natural gas industry emission sources in ozone nonattainment areas. Comments on the proposal are due November 17, 2015, and the final rules are slated to be promulgated in June 2016. Rule details are provided in the Technical Bulletin and table within the Technical Bulletin.
