Final EPA ICR Announced

On November 10, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the third and final Information Collection Request (ICR) for regulations designed to control methane and other emissions from the oil and natural gas industry

Operators who have been selected to provide this information will see a three-part request in some
cases. Part One is a basic facility survey for centralized production sites—essentially, oil and/or natural gas wellsites. The Part Two Gathering and Boosting Tool Survey is specifically for operators of gathering andboosting compressor stations and pipeline facilities. If you operate a wellsite that includes these facilities, you’ll be required to complete the second survey as well.

The third survey is the most complex. About 10 percent of operators required to complete the Part Two
(Gathering and Boosting Tool) survey will be randomly selected to complete the detailed Part Two FacilitySurvey—using the EPA electronic Greenhouse Gas Reporting Tool (e-GGRT) to collect the data. With the comprehensive data requested in this survey, your company runs the risk of allocating excess resources to locating and providing accurate information.
