O&G Episodic Emissions (Venting and Blowdowns) control strategy development


The Regional Air Quality Council has conducted a stakeholder process during 2023 to develop its O&G Episodic Emissions (Venting and Blowdowns) emission reduction strategy toward a RAQC Board endorsement of the proposal late in the year.  The workgroup reviewing the control language is meeting to review data, draft regulatory language, and supporting information as posted below.  After RAQC Board endorsement, the necessary documents will be submitted for hearing by the Air Quality Control Commission in early 2024.  The RAQC emission controls proposed for O&G Episodic Emissions (Venting and Blowdowns) are to further reduce ozone for nonattainment area planning efforts to reach compliance with National Ambient Air Quality Standards during the 2024-26 time frame, as well as to reduce greenhouse gases and toxic air contaminants.
