產品內容說明: 【中文】

此行動完成2012年及2016年發布之石油和天然氣新汙染源排放標準(NSPS)的修正案。這些修正案從汙染源類別移除傳送和儲存階段的汙染源、撤銷適用於這些汙染源的NSPS(包括揮發性有機化合物(VOC)和甲烷要求)、及分別撤銷適用於生產和加工階段汙染源之NSPS的甲烷專用規定。美國國家環境保護局(EPA)採用清淨空氣法(CAA)第111條的解釋,EPA作為對某些空氣汙染物發布NSPS的前提,必須決定某些污染物導致或造成重大的空氣汙染危害。最終法案於2020年9月14日生效。

Description: AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

ACTION: Final rule

SUMMARY: This action finalizes amendments to the oil and natural gas new source performance standards (NSPS) promulgated in 2012 and 2016. These amendments remove sources in the transmission and storage segment from the source category, rescind the NSPS (including both the volatile organic compounds (VOC) and methane requirements) applicable to those sources, and separately rescinds the methane-specific requirements of the NSPS applicable to sources in the production and processing segments. Furthermore, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) adopts an interpretation of Clean Air Act (CAA) section 111 under which the EPA, as a predicate to promulgating NSPS for certain air pollutants, must determine that the pertinent pollutant causes or contributes significantly to dangerous air pollution.

DATES: This final rule is effective on 14 September 2020.

This final rule is identified by Docket Number EPA-HQ-OAR-2017-0757. The Docket Folder is available on Regulations.gov at https://www.regulations.gov/docket?D=EPA-HQ-OAR-2017-0757 and provides access to primary and supporting documents as well as comments received. Documents are also accessible from Regulations.gov by searching the Docket Number.
