EPA NSPS Updates for Oil & Gas - Session 3

Event Description and Agenda:

Both diesel and spark ignition engines are used throughout the oil and gas industry from pipeline compressor stations to drilling platforms to refineries to emergency power. Also, over half of the CHP (combined heat & power or co-generation) applications are powered by engines.

These engines are subject to federal regulations at all facilities whether they are new or existing engines, whether they are stationary or non-road engines, and whether the facility is large or small. New stationary engines are subject to either NSPS Subpart IIII (CI or diesel) or NSPS Subpart JJJJ (SI, gasoline, natural gas, or other gases) federal New Source Performance Standards rules. Existing stationary engines are subject to federal RICE NESHAP rules codified at 40 CFR Part 63, Subpart ZZZZ. Non-road engines that are not "stationary" under the foregoing rules, are subject to non-road engine standards.

Recent EPA reconsiderations and implementation guidance have now been released. These affect how these engines are regulated and how the regulations are implemented. Also, recent and federal court decisions affect the rules and their interpretation. In addition, different states and agencies may regulate your facility differently, and emergency demand response programs differ regionally.

This webinar is designed to help busy oil and gas professionals, as well as suppliers and regulatory personnel, stay abreast and updated on how these rules affect your facilities and your customers. Merely reading the rules is no longer sufficient, as recent federal court decisions- even those pertaining to other rules- affect the engine rules, applicability issues, key definitions, and compliance interpretation.
