Registration for State Regulation to Reduce Methane Emissions from Oil and Gas Operations

On March 23, 2017 the California Air Resources Board (CARB) adopted a new state-wide regulation to reduce methane emissions from the oil and gas industry. All parties, including CARB and the Valley’s oil and gas industry, agreed that administration of this regulation by the District would result in a more effective implementation of the new state regulation at lower cost.

District Implementation

On December 21, 2017 the SJVAPCD Governing Board adopted two new rules allowing the District to effectively and efficiently implement and enforce the oil and gas state regulation.

  • Rule 2260 - Registration Requirements for Equipment Subject to California’s Oil and Gas Regulation
  • Rule 3156 - Fees for Equipment Subject to Rule 2260 Registration Requirements for Equipment Subject to California’s Oil and Gas Regulation

Initial Registration Application

Initial application to register affected facilities within the San Joaquin Valley and identify equipment subject to the state regulation is due by March 1, 2018.

Initial equipment inventory for equipment at affected facilities within the San Joaquin Valley is due July 1, 2018.
