Dallas, TX (PRWEB) April 18, 2010
Trinity Consultants, an environmental consulting firm with offices nationwide, will present a webinar on proposed greenhouse gas reporting requirements for the oil and gas industry on April 27 from 10:00 am – 11:30 am CDT. The training will be delivered by Robert J. Liles, Principal Consultant in Trinity’s Dallas office and Melissa Audette, Managing Consultant in Austin. Both have significant experience in addressing air emissions and regulatory requirements for facilities in the oil and gas industry as well as working with facilities in a variety of industries that have already become subject to mandatory GHG reporting.
According to Liles, “Under the proposed rule, many petroleum and natural gas facilities, from exploration and production through natural gas processing, will be required to report vented, fugitive, and flare combustion emissions from selected equipment. Initial reports would be due to the U.S. EPA by March 31, 2012 for calendar year 2011 emissions. These new requirements are not insignificant and affected facilities really need to begin to prepare now.”
The presentation will discuss the necessary components of an oil and natural gas system facility’s GHG report, including: 1) applicability criterion, 2) emission calculations, 3) emission estimations for natural gas processing plants, 4) emission estimation methods for local distribution companies, 5) leak detection monitoring, 6) reporting, and 7) record keeping requirements. The presentation will include a segment for Q&A. Intended participants include operations and environmental personnel from the oil and gas industry who will be responsible for complying with the new rule.For more information on the upcoming webinar, visit http://www.trinityconsultants.com/webinars.
