EPA Requests Information on Oil and Gas HAPs
EPA has requested information related to hazardous air pollutant emissions from sources
in oil and natural gas production and in natural gas transmission and storage. In particular, EPA requests data on storage vessels without potential flash emissions, and data on HAP emissions from regulated small glycol dehydrators. With regard to the small glycol dehydrators EPA is particularly interested in data regarding any emissions of HAP other than benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylene; information on available control options for any such HAP; and information regarding a potential compliance demonstration issue with respect to the 2012 standards for small glycol dehydration units, as they apply to units with very low emissions. Comments must be received by EPA on or before January 26, 2016.
