Excerpt from USEPA Issues New Air Regulations for Oil and Gas Industry
On April 17, 2012, the United States Environmental Protection Agency ("USEPA") finalized its long-anticipated updated New Source Performance Standards ("NSPS")and National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants ("NESHAP") for the oil and gas sector, which include first-time federal air standards for hydraulically fractured natural gas wells. This suite of regulations, issued under the federal Clean Air Act, was finalized pursuant to a Consent Decree entered by the D.C. District Court in conjunction with a lawsuit filed against USEPA in January 2009 by WildEarth Guardians and the San Juan Citizens Alliance. The rules will be published in the Federal Register in the coming weeks, and will take effect 60 days following publication.
