arbcombo -- Workshop to Discuss Potential Revisions to the Regulation for Mandatory Reporting of Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Posted: 10 Jun 2013 14:53:41
The California Air Resources Board (ARB) staff will hold a
workshop on June 26, 2013, at 9 am to discuss potential revisions
to ARB’s Regulation for the Mandatory Reporting of Greenhouse Gas
Emissions (title 17, California Code of Regulations, sections
95100-95157)(Mandatory Reporting Regulation). 
The potential revisions would support potential amendments to the
California’s Cap-and-Trade Program, and also update several
sections of the Mandatory Reporting Regulation.  Potential
amendments to the Cap-and-Trade Program are described here: 

The workshop is scheduled as follows:

DATE:  Wednesday June 26, 2013
TIME:  09:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. 
PLACE: Byron Sher Auditorium at Cal/EPA Headquarters
       1001 I Street, Sacramento

LIVE WEBCAST: http://www.calepa.ca.gov/Broadcast/

ADDITIONAL MATERIALS: The full workshop notice is available and
additional materials will be posted prior to the workshop here:

Some of the topics that will be discussed include:

Mandatory Reporting Updates to support Cap-and-Trade:

Onshore Petroleum and Natural Gas Production: Update facility
definition for onshore petroleum and natural gas production to
ensure consistency with the benchmarking and allocation methods
in the Cap-and-Trade Program.

Lime Production Emissions: Modify emissions estimation method for
lime production to account for CO2 reinjected and recovered in

Fuel Suppliers: Modify reporting requirements for natural gas
suppliers to support the broad-scope covered emissions

Sub-ID level reporting: Add in reporting provisions for reporting
at the “sub-ID” level.  This will ensure emissions associated
with a single facility are clear.  Mainly for cogeneration

Allowance Revenue Allocation: Add information to support the
Investor Owned Utility revenue return assessment in collaboration
with the California Public Utilities Commission.

Lead Production: Add emissions and product data reporting
requirements for lead production in California.  This reporting
sector was previously excluded from the Mandatory Reporting

Facility Ownership: Clarify reporting obligations related to
changes of ownership of co-located, contiguous facilities.

Product Data: Additional product data reporting requirements to
support allocation of allowances.

Emissions Data Reporting Topics: 

Petroleum and Natural Gas Systems: Update leaker emission
reporting for onshore petroleum and natural gas production in
response to stakeholder concerns; Incorporate a crude oil and
produced water flash liberation test method developed by ARB
staff for reporters to use.

Stationary Combustion: Add fuel cell emissions to the reporting
threshold to assess the amount of natural gas used in California;
Collect additional information on bio-methane producers to
increase verification transparency.

Inventory Support: Add abbreviated reporter requirement to report
fuel use by unit type to ensure reporting compatibility with
non-abbreviated reporters; Modify hydrogen production to subtract
out transferred CO2 to prevent double-counting.

Verification: Modify the product data verification statement to
reflect carbon weighted tonne (CWT) reporting for refineries, so
verification statements can differentiate between intermediate
and primary refinery products; Clarify requirements for

Electric Power Entities: Clarifications to address handling of
power contracts and reporting of Asset-Controlling Supplier
