Draft Oil Field Distributed Generation Assessment

The ARB staff has posted, for public review and comment, a draft white paper which discusses staff’s assessment of potential greenhouse gas reductions from using clean distributed generation technologies to generate electricity from fuel that is currently being flared at oil and gas production facilities.  (An example of clean distributed generation technology is a microturbine.)  We are seeking comments by March 29, 2012. For questions or comments, please contact Dave Mehl at (916) 323-1491 or Jonathan Foster at (916) 327-1512.
