Issues and Workarounds for e-GGRT RY2018
If you submit GHG annual reports via the bulk XML upload method, see XML Known Issues.
Issue: Subpart T reporters may encounter situations where validation messages T0065 and T0066 display on the Validation Report incorrectly.
Workaround: You may contact the GHGRP Help Desk to request assistance in removing these validation messages.
Issue: When adding new delayed coking units within Subpart Y, the e-GGRT system will not generate a Data Completeness validation message instructing the user to use the Inputs Verifier Tool (IVT) to calculate methane emissions for the unit, however the unit will correctly be marked as "Incomplete".
Workaround: Please open the delayed coking unit and use the IVT "Open" button to enter the necessary IVT equation inputs data.
Issue: XML submissions for Reporting Year 2016 which reflect annual operating hours for the gas collection system between 8760 and 8784 hours may encounter critical error for validation codes HH0354 and HH179. If you encounter these messages and believe your data is correct please contact the GHGRP Help Desk for assistance.
Workaround: You may contact the GHGRP Help Desk to request an allowance to submit with these errors.
Subpart Q, Subpart X, Subpart Y (Flares)
Issue: For flares employing Equation Y-1a, when data is carried over from RY17 to RY18, users may be able to circumvent the new mass or volumetric measurement basis selection by clicking on validation message links in their Validation Report prior to editing / entering flare unit data. If a user does click the validation message text prior to providing the mass or volumetric measurement basis they may have difficulty making that selection later.
Workaround: Users should start the data entry process by editing flare information (click on the pencil icon on the flare summary page as shown below) and entering the required data including the mass or volumetric measurement basis selection. After making this selection, users can click the OPEN button for the flare unit and complete all required data entry (which varies based on whether or not measurements were based on mass or volumetric measurements).
Issue: Validation message W9402V3 and final validation message W0012V3 may both trigger for generated Subpart W submissions. These validations are appropriately triggering but duplicate each other. If you encounter both of these validations, please review your reported data and revise as appropriate. Validation checks W9402V3 and W0012V3 are not Critical Errors and so you will not be prevented from submitting and certifying your annual report.
Workaround: There is no workaround at this time.
Issue: Validation messages W1968V3 and W1969V3 may trigger incorrectly for the natural gas driven pneumatic pump emissions source after uploading your Subpart W Reporting Form into e-GGRT.
Workaround: There is no workaround at this time, however W1968V3 and W1969V3 are not Critical Errors and so you will not be prevented from submitting and certifying your annual report. Please disregard W1968V3 and W1969V3 validations until they can be corrected.
Issue: Subpart DD reporters from the state of North Carolina may encounter difficulty resubmitting RY2017 and prior year reporting forms because of a misspelling in the state name in the old reporting forms. Prior to RY18 the Subpart DD reporting form and the GHG reporting schema spelled the state of North Carolina as "North Caroline". This spelling is no longer accepted.
Workaround: Users who wish to resubmit their Subpart DD data for North Carolina for RY17 or prior years should migrate their data to a newly downloaded reporting form, ensuring that the state name "North Carolina" is selected from the pull down list. You may contact the GHGRP Help Desk if they need clarification or assistance.
