Uinta Basin Oil and Gas Emission Reduction Grant
A Targeted Air Shed Grant Program

The Utah Department of Environmental Quality, Division of Air Quality (DAQ), offers incentives for oil and gas producers to voluntarily take action to reduce emissions of NOx and VOCs, the precursors to ozone, to help with attainment of the ozone standard by 2023.

In 2018, the Environmental Protection Agency identified the Uinta Basin as one of the top five most polluted areas for ozone, resulting in an award of $5 million to the Utah DAQ to reduce emissions from oil and gas operations in Uintah and Duchesne counties.

DAQ is seeking ideas for projects to fund through this award that quantifiably reduce emissions of NOx and VOCs. Note that a mandatory cost-share of 60% is required by the grant participant, allowing the grant to fund 40% of the project.
