Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reporting From The Petroleum And Natural Gas Industry

U.S. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY CLIMATE CHANGE DIVISION WASHINGTON DC

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations cited in this technical support document (TSD) contain legally-binding requirements. In several chapters this TSD offers illustrative examples for complying with the minimum requirements indicated by the regulations. This is done to provide information that may be helpful for reporters’ implementation efforts. Such recommendations are prefaced by the words “may” or “should” and are to be considered advisory. They are not required elements of the regulations cited in this TSD. Therefore, this document does not substitute for the regulations cited in this TSD, nor is it a regulation itself, so it does not impose legally-binding requirements on EPA or the regulated community. It may not apply to a particular situation based upon the circumstances. Mention of trade names or commercial products does not constitute endorsement or recommendation for use.

While EPA has made every effort to ensure the accuracy of the discussion in this document, the obligations of the regulated community are determined by statutes, regulations or other legally binding requirements. In the event of a conflict between the discussion in this document and any statute or regulation, this document would not be controlling.
