CARB has provided a standardized Excel spreadsheet (see link below) to owner or operators for reporting facility and equipment information and flash analysis testing results, pursuant to CARB's recently-adopted “Greenhouse Gas Emissions Standards for Crude Oil and Natural Gas Facilities” regulation (Oil and Gas Regulation).
The spreadsheet can be used to report the following information to CARB, unless directed by your local Air Pollution Control/Air Quality Management District to use the spreadsheet to report the information to them:
Facility and equipment information (section 95674(b)(2) of the Oil and Gas Regulation); and
Flash analysis testing results (section 95673(a)(1) of the Oil and Gas Regulation).
This spreadsheet can also be used to report information required by the San Joaquin Valley APCD pursuant to their proposed Rule 2260, “Registration Requirements for Equipment Subject to California’s Oil and Gas Regulation”.
The information required by section 95674(b)(2) is due to be submitted to CARB no later than January 1, 2018, using the spreadsheet below. However, in light of CARB staff recently becoming aware of a misunderstanding concerning what information needs to be reported, CARB will be using its enforcement discretion to allow this information to be reported to us no later than July 1, 2018.
CARB requests that owners or operators report as much of this information as they have ready, specifically information for facilities and equipment subject to the standards in section 95668, by the January 1, 2018, due date.
