Issues and Workarounds for e-GGRT RY2016

If you submit GHG annual reports via the bulk XML upload method, see XML Known Issues.

Subject Area

 

Description

 

General

Issue: Some e-GGRT users are currently experiencing login problems associated with 'password reset' attempts.

Workaround (updated 3/24/17): When completing the password reset process be sure that you only use alphanumeric characters in your new password. The application is currently 'accepting' passwords that contain symbols during the reset process but is then considering them invalid during login. To avoid this problem, please avoid the use of symbols in your new password. Please refer to http://www.ccdsupport.com/confluence/display/help/Password+Requirements for information about password requirements.

Subpart C

Issue: Subpart C data quality validations C509, C510, C511, C512, C513, and C514 may trigger incorrectly for 'Common Pipe' and 'Aggregation of Units' configuration types. The data quality validations in question evaluate total CO2 emissions for the configuration based on the reported fuel type(s) and maximum rated heat input capacity.

Workaround: As the validation messages in question are not critical errors, they can be ignored. You may also contact the Help Desk (please provide your facility name and GHGRP ID) and they can be removed. 

Reference 7590

Subpart C

RESOLVED 3/10/2017. A maintenance release was deployed that corrected the logic of the C521 and C522 validation messages.

Issue: Subpart C data quality validations  C521 and C522 may trigger incorrectly for bulk XML users who are uploading annual reports for RY2013, RY2014, RY2015, or RY2016. The data quality validations in question are using the incorrect global warming potential (GWP) values for methane and nitrous oxide in those reporting years. These data quality validations are employing the correct GWP validations for RY2011 and RY2012.

Reference 7601

Subpart D

RESOLVED 2/25/2017. A maintenance release was deployed that corrected the logic of the D067 validation message.

Issue: Data Quality validation D067 - The annual N2O emissions of {xxx} (metric tons) reported for Subpart D, when converted to CO2e, does not equal the sum of the N2O as CO2e emissions of {xxx} (metric ton)) reported for all the fuels at the facility. Please check the value you have elected to report and revise the value if appropriate - may trigger incorrectly for reporters who are using the XML bulk upload reporting method.

Reference 7582

Subpart I

Issue: The Trend Report feature may not work properly for annual reports that contain subpart I (Electronics Manufacturing) and also include "other" f-GHGs and "other" f-HTFs that were added to the pre-existing f-GHG and f-HTF selection lists in the subpart.

Workaround: There is no workaround at this time. This issue will not prevent submission and certification of your annual report. We will work to address the issue in an upcoming maintenance release. 

Reference 7617

Subpart MM

Issue: On the submission page uses may notice a anomaly on the Text or HTML report of data pending submission.  Users who use Calculation Method 1 on the Aggregate Products tab will see the value "0" reported for the Carbon Share (mass %) field even though that field is not required and is blank on our uploaded Excel file.  Similarly the reported XML shows a value of zero for the Carbon Share field even though that was not intended by the user.

Workaround: There is no workaround at this time. This issue will not prevent submission and certification of your annual report and will not cause other problems. We will work to address this issue as soon as possible after 3/31/17.  

Subpart T

RESOLVED 3/17/2017. A maintenance release was deployed that corrected the logic of the screen error.

Issue: Subpart T users may receive a Screen Error indicating that "annual cover gas usage rate (kg/mton Mg)" must be greater than zero even if the associated gas is a carrier gas.

Reference 7614

Subpart W

Issue: Onshore production facilities reporting wells taken out of production in Tables AA.1.ii and AA.1.iii may receive a validation error message (W9559V3) that is  not worded correctly. The corrected wording (matching the underlying logic) will be: 

"The number of wells permanently taken out of production in Table AA.1.ii does not equal the count of wells reported as having been taken out of production in Table AA.1.iii. Please review your data and make corrections if necessary." 

If you are still receiving this validation error after reviewing your response to Column I of Table AA.1.ii and Column I of Table AA.1.iii, you should still be able to submit and certify your report.

Workaround: There is not a workaround at this time. This validation check will not prevent submission and certification of your annual report. This issue will be addressed in an upcoming maintenance issue.

Subpart W

Issue: An improperly working validation check (W1971V3) has been identified for facilities reporting 'Annual average fraction of CO2 content of natural gas out of the acid gas removal unit.'

Workaround: There is not a workaround at this time. This validation check will not prevent submission and certification of your annual report. This issue will be addressed in an upcoming maintenance issue.

Reference 7606

Subpart W

Issue: Onshore production facilities with wells subject to completions may incorrectly receive an error flag (W9558V3) if they have wells with more than one completion in the reporting year.

Workaround: There is no workaround at this time. This issue will not prevent submission and certification of your annual report. We will work to address the issue in an upcoming maintenance release. 

Reference 7628

Subpart W

RESOLVED 3/17/2017. A maintenance release was deployed that corrected the logic of the affected validations.

Issue: Improperly functioning validation checks, W1962V3,  W1963V3, W1964V3, W1965V3, W1966V3, and W1967V3, for pneumatic devices have been identified. 

Reference 7618

Subpart W

RESOLVED 3/16/2017.. A modified Subpart W reporting form has been released to address an issue identified for certain reporters with Liquids Unloading emissions. If you are not experiencing this issue, you may continue to use reporting forms dated prior to 3/16/2017. 

Issue: For the (f) Liquids Unloading tab of the reporting form, some users are seeing an issue with the first two sets of radio buttons, resulting in a screen error that prevents form submission. The issue arises for users with certain system display configurations that magnify font or image size. These magnification display settings may cause the two sets of radio buttons to remap to a single cell.

Reference 7621

Subpart W

RESOLVED 3/9/2017.  A revised Subpart W reporting form was published on 3/09/2017.  Onshore natural gas transmission pipeline facilities should use the most recent version of the reporting form to submit your annual report.  Other industry segments in Subpart W may continue to use reporting forms dated prior to 3/09/2017.

Please use caution if you must Cut and Paste from other sources. EPA urges users who cut and paste to always use Paste Special / Values when pasting. Failure to cut and paste as directed may damage your reporting form, forcing you to start again with an empty form. Use of the Paste Special / Values will ensure that formatting and cell protection is not altered. If you use cut and paste processes and later encounter problems with your reporting form please contact the GHGRP Help Desk.

Issue: For Onshore natural gas transmission pipelines facilites, the form-generated emissions calculations in the Total Emissions table are incorrect; the form is double counting the blowdown emissions by adding the emissions reported in Table I.4 to the sum of the emissions reported in Tables I.2 and I.3.

Reference 7610

Subpart W

RESOLVED 3/4/2017. A maintenance release was deployed that corrected the logic of the W6614V3 and W6615V3 validation messages.

Issue: Improperly functioning validation checks, W6614V3 and W6615V3, for reciprocating compressors may appear for facilities in the Onshore petroleum and natural gas production and Onshore petroleum and natural gas gathering and boosting segments.

Reference 7597

Subpart W

RESOLVED 3/9/2017. A revised Subpart W reporting form was published on 3/09/2017. You may also continue to use reporting forms dated prior to 3/09/2017 and use the the workaround described below.

Issue: Entered well ID numbers in Table AA.iii. beginning with zero will have the leading zero dropped from the well ID number due to cell formatting resulting in an incorrect well ID number.  For example,  a well ID entered as 0123456789 will be shown as 123456789 instead.  Well ID numbers beginning with zero but entered with dashes (e.g. 01-234-56789) will not have the leading zero dropped. This affects both the regular and supersize reporting forms published on 1/31/2017.

Workaround: Well ID numbers beginning with zero may format their well ID numbers with dashes or may enter a single quote character ' before the well ID number (e.g. '0123456789). Adding the single quote character will format the entry as text and correctly retain the leading zero.

Reference 7585

Subpart W

RESOLVED 1/31/2017. A revised Subpart W reporting form was published on 1/31/2017. You may also continue to use reporting forms dated prior to 1/312017.

Issue: Minor formatting issues were identified both the regular and supersize reporting forms and corrected on the (l) Well testing, (o) Centrifugal compressors, and (p) Reciprocating compressors tabs. These revised reporting forms were posted on 1/31/2017 so forms downloaded after that date are unaffected.

Workaround:  You may continue to use the 1/26/2017 version of the forms, however a relatively few number of cells may appear with a dark background when they should be light blue, making it hard to read.  This formatting issue does not affect the functionality of the form.  If you enter all the required data in the 1/26/2017 form your submission will not be affected. We recommend using the latest version of forms if at all possible

Reference 7532

Subpart W

RESOLVED 3/7/2017. A maintenance release was deployed that corrected the logic and clarified the message of the screen error.

Issue: When uploading the subpart W reporting form, an incorrect Screen Error validation may display, which will prevent the reporting form from being uploaded. The screen error message is "You did not indicate that you used Calculation Method 1 or 2. This data element is not required unless you use either of these methods."

Reference 7595

Subpart Y

RESOLVED 3/4/2017. A maintenance release was deployed that corrected the logic of these validation messages.

Issue: A set of four IVT validation messages may be incorrectly generated based on data entry in the Loading section of Subpart Y. The validation message IDs at issue are IVT-Y23001, IVT-Y23003, IVT-Y23005, and IVT-Y23008.

Reference 7586

Subpart AA

Issue: Calculation Methodology Start Year and Calculation Methodology End Year data elements associated with fuels combusted in Subpart AA process units employing Subpart C calculation methodologies are defaulted to 1/1/2016 and 12/31/2016, respectively, and cannot be edited.

Workaround: There is no workaround at this time, however, you may instead note the correct start and/or end dates within the Subpart A "Description of Changes to Methodology" text field.

Reference 7627

Subpart HH

RESOLVED 3/21/2017. An updated Subpart HH Optional Calculation spreadsheet for Equation HH-1 has been released to https://www.ccdsupport.com/confluence/display/help/Optional+Calculation+Spreadsheet+Instructions

Issue: The Subpart HH Optional Calculation spreadsheet for Equation HH-1 has not been updated for 2016.
