Description of Subjects/Issues Oil & Gas Rulemaking Efforts: Regulation Numbers 3, 6 and 7. PLEASE SEE DETAILED INFORMATION BELOW.
Purpose/Objective of Rule To establish state-only volatile organic compound (VOC) and other hydrocarbon emission control requirements for oil and natural gas operations. These requirements include: 1) enhancing the existing control program for storage tanks; 2) ensuring that emissions from controlled storage tanks are captured and routed to the control device; 3) conducting leak detection and repair programs for compressor stations and well production facilities; 4) installing auto-igniters on flare devices throughout the state; 5) requiring the use of low-bleed and no-bleed pneumatic devices; 6) requiring that the gas stream at well production facilities be connected to a pipeline or routed to a control device; 7) lowering the threshold for controlling glycol dehydrators; and 8) establishing requirements to minimize emissions from well maintenance and liquids unloading. The Commission may also consider alternative proposals to reduce VOC and other hydrocarbon emissions from oil and natural gas operations in Colorado.
