It has made it to the Federal Register - Proposed Petroleum Refinery Sector Risk and Technology Review

Well it has finally made it to the Federal Register, the long awaited residual risk rule for petroleum refineries.  You may have missed it, of course, as you might have been getting ready for the Fourth of July or you might still be on vacation.  But, it is here.  You can download the pdf version of the rule from here.

EPA will be holding two public hearings - one in Wilmington, CA (July 16, 2014) and one in Galena Park, TX (August 5, 2014). The proposed comment period is from June 30, 2014 through August 29, 2014.  Hopefully, the EPA will extend the period.  

As anticipated in the initial release of the proposed rule on May 15, 2014 - the rule is focusing on emissions from petroleum refineries based upon the information EPA received in its information request.  Key highlights of the proposal include:

  • Elimination of the current exemptions for start-up, shut-down, and malfunction provisions.
  • Applications of new standards for cokers, and storage tanks.
  • A focus on flaring and flare management
