2017 Statewide Oil & Gas Emissions Inventory


Oil & Gas Emissions Inventories

Oil and gas inventories are based on data submitted by various oil & gas sources throughout the state. The inventory is a cooperative effort between the Ute Indian Tribe, USEPA, and the Utah Division of Air Quality. The inventory is primarily comprised of “emissions at oil & gas facilities with Standard Industrial Classification codes in the major group 13 that have uncontrolled actual emissions greater than one ton per year for any single pollutant including: PM10, PM2.5, NOx, SOx, CO, or VOC. These sources include, but are not limited to, industries involved in oil and natural gas exploration, production, and transmission operations; well production facilities; natural gas compressor stations; and natural gas processing plants and commercial oil and gas disposal wells, ponds and sites.” (R307-150)
