EPA streamlines tribal oil and gas minor NSR process
September 9, 2019 | Eric L. Hiser
On July 15, 2019, EPA proposed revisions to the federal implementation plan for tribal minor NSR program addressing “true minor” oil and gas sources. The proposed revision would adjust the registration requirements for true minor sources to allow concurrent submittal of the registration Part 1 form and Endangered Species Act/National Historic Preservation Act (ESA/NHPA) screening materials. This potentially may save 30 days in the permitting and construction process.
