EPA’s Proposed Amendments to the 2016 New Source Performance Standards for the Oil and Natural Gas Industry

On October 15, 2018, US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a proposed rule that would amend the Oil and Natural Gas Sector: Emission Standards for New, Reconstructed, and Modified Sources published in the Federal Register on June 6, 2016. The Clean Air Act §111 establishes EPA’s authority to develop New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) to control emissions of air pollutants from new and modified stationary sources. The proposal will affect all new or modified oil and gas sources on or near Tribal land that have leaking equipment by allowing industry to delay detecting and repairing leaks thus adversely impacting the health and welfare of Tribal communities. Comments must be received on or before December 17, 2018.
