Standards of Performance for New, Reconstructed, and Modified Sources and Emissions Guidelines for Existing Sources: Oil and Natural Gas Sector Climate Revie
On 15 November 2021, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a proposed rule which included new source performance standards (NSPS) and emissions guidelines (EG) for the Crude Oil and Natural Gas source category under the CAA to respond to the President's 20 January 2021, Executive order (E.O.) titled "Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis." In this proposal, the EPA also requested comments on regulating other types of potential emissions sources and numerous topics associated with the proposed NSPS and EG. EPA has received numerous requests to extend the comment period given the complexity and length of the proposed rulemaking, which is currently 14 January 2022. Accordingly, the EPA is extending the deadline of the comment period to 31 January 2022.
DATES: The public comment period for the proposal published in the Federal Register on 15 November 2021 (86 FR 63110) is extended from 14 January 2022 to 31 January 2022.Written comments must be received on or before 31 January 2022.
