Ohio EPA Finalizes New Compressor Station GPS

On March 2, 2017, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency finalized several general permits relating to natural gas compressor stations and similar facilities. The general permits are designed for facilities typically found near gathering lines leading to interstate transmission networks. In order to qualify for a general permit, the applicant must certify that it meets the corresponding regulatory criteria. The general permits are for minor sources only and may not be used by facilities that trigger the Clean Air Act’s New Source Review requirements.
