TXOGA Statement on EPA’s Revised New Source Review Permitting Process

August 2, 2019

AUSTIN—The following statement can be attributed to Todd Staples, President of the Texas Oil and Gas Association, regarding the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) announcement yesterday of proposed revisions to clarify the New Source Review (NSR) permitting process:

“The EPA proposal is a common sense approach to the NSR permitting process that will allow for an accurate assessment of an emission profile. The proposed revision will reduce tedious and redundant bureaucratic protocols while continuing to ensure that regulators and permitted industry correctly assess a planned change in operations.”
