 AGA Comments on EPA’s Revised “Subpart W” Methane Emissions Reporting Rule (April 24, 2014) 

On April 24, AGA filed comments on EPA’s proposal to revise and clarify the greenhouse gas reporting rules for natural gas systems under 40 C.F.R. Part 98, Subpart W.  We thanked EPA for making the clarifying changes we sought in our court challenge and petition for administrative review of the 2012 version of Subpart W.  Specifically, EPA proposed to make it clear that natural gas utilities should calculate emissions from metering and regulating (M&R) stations based on meter-regulator runs, rather than burdensome counts of individual components at stations that reduce pressure from transmission to distribution pressure (T-D stations).  In our comments, AGA suggested a few additional corrections and technical clarifications, but overall,  we are pleased that EPA has proposed revisions that will help make the reporting rule more workable for natural gas utilities.
