Oil and Gas Regulations: What You Need to Focus on Now

Oil and Gas workshop at 4C Conference

Course Date and Time
Wednesday, February 19, 2020 
1:00PM - 5:00PM

Course Description

The oil and gas sector has seen massive regulatory changes since 2016, particularly with respect to air compliance requirements.  Regulations have been issued, withdrawn, and modified by multiple regulatory agencies.  In addition, challenges to some of these regulations have been made in the courts.  The end result is a confusing mix of regulations, policies and expectations. 

While not providing formal legal guidance, the workshop will provide clarity and direction for addressing the compliance challenges face by upstream and midstream oil and gas companies.  We will focus on:  

  • Recently lodged consent decrees 

  • EPA’s New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) OOOOa requirements associated with volatile organic compound (VOC) and methane leak detection and repair (LDAR) monitoring and reporting programs 

  • Recent changes to New Source Review (NSR) and the impacts to the oil and gas sector    

  • Recent proposed changes in the Colorado regulatory environment
