AGA Court Challenge to GHGReporting Rule Subpart W Technical Revisions (Feb. 21, 2012)
EPA attempted to address many of the issues raised by AGA in our petition for reconsideration of the November 2010 Subpart W final rule regarding greenhouse gas reporting requirements for natural gas facilities, and we appreciate their effort. However, the Technical Revisions published on December 23, 2011 make several significant changes that appeared for the first time in the final rule and were not made available for comment beforehand. There are errors and unworkable provisions that need to be addressed. Accordingly, AGA filed a petition for judicial review to protect our right to court review. We anticipate that this petition will be consolidated with our earlier petition and held in abeyance pending continuing discussions with EPA.
