Protecting the Air

All oil and natural gas operators must comply with stringent TCEQ regulations established to control air emissions.

Depending on the nature of the operation, oil and natural gas operators may be subject to specific permitting requirements. Companies also must comply with regulations that cover emissions from engines and generators at well sites.

The pressure in pipelines and other production equipment can be monitored from remote sites using computerized systems. Additional tools to inspect equipment for leaks include infrared cameras and handheld emission detection devices. Operators have a proven track record for quickly identifying and repairing faulty equipment. They may install additional air quality equipment to reduce the risk of leaks.
