Offshore Petroleum and Natural Gas Production
- Q462. Does the final rule amending 40 CFR Part 98 apply to both onshore and offshore petroleum and natural gas production?
- Q463. Are sites in south Louisiana located within the State boundaries in lakes, bays, and bayous (not in Federal waters but subject to the ebb and flow of the tide) considered to be seaward of the terrestrial border and thus offshore?
- Q464. Are emissions from stationary sources of fuel combustion to be quantified and reported in accordance with the methodologies specified in 40 CFR Part 98 Subpart C and not as described in BOEMRE's GOADS instructions?
- Q465. Does an offshore facility reported in the GOADS 2008 that did not exceed the combined emissions threshold for subparts C and W sources of more than 25,000 metric tons CO2e have to report GHG emissions for RY2011 if emissions exceed this threshold?
- Q466. Would an offshore facility that emits 20,000 metric tons CO2e from from subpart W sources based on GOADS calculation methodology and 10,000 metric tons CO2e from stationary combustion sources be required to report GHG emissions during 2011?
- Q467. Can we use 2011 BOEMRE data, rather than the previously available data from 2008, for reporting RY2011 emissions from an offshore petroleum and natural gas production facility?
- Q468. If an offshore oil and gas production platform or facility is farther out in the ocean than the limit of state waters, as defined by the Submerged Lands Act, does that facility have to report emissions data to EPA for Subpart C?
- Q469. By when do onshore and offshore production facilities subject to CFR 98 Subpart W need to report?
- Q470. Is it necessary to monitor of "hours operated" for "natural gas, diesel, and dual-fired turbines" as required in Subpart W via GOADS.
- Q471. How are new offshore facilities that are subject to GOADS supposed to report in 2012? Since published GOADS data are not available, should they be using the GOADS methodologies to calculate the emissions?
