LCFS Crude Oil Lifecycle Assessment

This page last reviewed October 10, 2014


This page provides information regarding the Crude Oil Lifecycle Assessment under the LCFS.  In 2009, the Board directed staff to prepare guidelines to assist regulated parties in determining carbon intensity values for crude oil used in California.  Staff has organized several workgroup meetings in 2011 and finally adopted Oil Production Greenhouse Gas Emission Estimator (OPGEE) Model in 2012.  This page provides the results of Crude Oil Lifecycle Assessment and its suporting documents.  If you wish to submit a comment, click the “Public Comment” link.
