arbcombo -- Oil and Gas Regulation MOA goals Posted: 06 Feb 2017 13:59:47
The California Air Resources Board (ARB) staff has posted a document, “Pending Memoranda of Agreement with Air Districts: Goals and Process”, that is related to, but not part of the formal regulatory record for, ARB’s proposed “Greenhouse Gas Emission Standards for Crude Oil and Natural Gas Facilities” regulation. This document is located at http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/oil-gas/oil-gas.htm. Informal feedback on the this document may be sent to OilandGas@arb.ca.gov . Feedback will be most helpful if received by February 21, 2017. Background: The proposed regulation covers greenhouse gas emissions, predominately methane, from oil and natural gas production, processing, and storage, natural gas gathering and boosting stations, as well as from natural gas underground storage and transmission compressor stations (collectively “oil and gas”). It addresses both vented (intentional) and fugitive (unintentional) releases of greenhouse gases by processes at facilities in these sectors. The proposed regulation establishes emission standards for active and idle equipment and components at these facilities. Depending on the equipment or component, control mechanisms include vapor recovery, leak detection and repair, and equipment replacement. Additionally, the proposed regulation includes monitoring at underground natural gas storage facilities for the early detection of large leaks or well failures. California is in a drought emergency.
