ghg-rep -- Draft Test Protocols to Quantify Emissions from Crude Oil and Natural Gas Systems

Posted: 07 Feb 2011 11:16:19
Air Resources Board staff have posted two draft test protocols on
our Oil and Natural Gas Production, Processing, and Storage
website.  They can be found at
http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/oil-gas/oil-gas.htm. The protocols have
been developed in conjunction with stakeholders and are designed
to quantify fugitive and vented carbon dioxide, methane, and VOC
emissions from upstream oil & gas operations. Both protocols are
currently being field tested and are still under development. We
are seeking comments on both draft protocols by March 15, 2011.
If you have any comments or questions, please contact Joseph
Fischer at (916) 445-0071, or at joseph.fischer@arb.ca.gov.

These draft protocols support the potential development of two AB
32 measures:  “Oil and Natural Gas Production, Processing, and
Storage”, and “Natural Gas Transmission and Distribution”.  The
first of these measures would seek to reduce venting and fugitive
GHG and VOC emissions from the extraction, treatment, and storage
of oil and natural gas, including underground natural gas
storage.  The second measure would reduce venting and fugitive
GHG and VOC emissions from the transmission and distribution of
natural gas through pipelines, including from compressor stations
along the pipelines.
