IPAA and Allied Trade Groups (Including MOGA) Support the EPA’s Proposal to Withdraw Control Techniques Guidelines


On Tuesday, May 8, 2018 the Independent Petroleum Association of America (IPAA) along with partnering trade associations, including the Michigan Oil and Gas Association, submitted a comment letter to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) supporting the EPA’s plans to withdraw overreaching Obama-era requirements for existing oil and natural gas facilities.

The rules known as "control technique guidelines" (CTG) were issued in 2016 to curb releases of volatile organic compounds (VOC’s). However, EPA is in the process of reconsidering its related 2016 methane rule for new and modified oil and gas sources, prompting the agency to withdraw the Control Technique guidelines.
