Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) Approves New Mechanism to Authorize Maintenance, Startup and Shutdown Emissions at Oil & Gas Facilities

On July 26, 2013, the TCEQ commissioners approved the adoption of a new permit by rule ("PBR") to authorize air contaminant emissions from planned maintenance, startup and shutdown ("MSS") activities at oil and gas handling and production facilities. Specifically, the action will add the PBR at 30 TAC Section 106.359, which can be used along with other state New Source Review mechanisms to authorize such emissions by and after the January 5, 2014 statutory deadline for permitting planned MSS emissions at oil and gas facilities. The new PBR will go into effect on September 10, 2013. Information about this action, including the text of the PBR, is available on TCEQ's website.
