§ 98.2(a)(2) - A facility that contains any source category that is listed in Table A-4 of this subpart and that emits 25,000 metric tons CO 2 e or more per year in combined emissions from stationary fuel combustion units, miscellaneous uses of carbonate, and all applicable source categories that are listed in Table A-3 and Table A-4 of this subpart.
Example Table A-4 “25,000 metric ton threshold” source categories:
Suppliers of Coal-based Liquid Fuels (Subpart LL) and suppliers of Petroleum Products (Subpart MM) use the Office of Transportation and Air Quality Fuels Registration (OTAQREG) system to report CO 2 emissions from products.
However, if your facility has other source categories covered by the GHG Reporting Rule (e.g., stationary combustion sources) those GHG emissions must also be reported using e-GRRT.
Supplier category sources are only required to report 2010 stationary source combustion emissions during 2011 unless specified otherwise in applicable subparts. Supplier category emissions will otherwise be reported for the first time during 2012.
Subpart W has significant application in the Marcellus Shale Region of Pennsylvania.
Requires facility level reporting for source categories which include onshore petroleum and natural gas production and natural gas processing, transmission compression, storage and distribution facilities.
GHG emissions from equipment venting and blowdown, flares, and leaks from valves, connectors, pumps, flanges, meters, regulators and other equipment leak sources.
For Onshore Production “facility” includes all emission sources on a well pad or associated with a well pad that are under common ownership or control in a single hydrocarbon basin as defined by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG).
For Natural Gas Distribution “facility” includes the collection of all pipelines, metering stations and regulating stations that are operated by a single Local Distribution Company.
For all other categories “facility” includes all source categories listed in the GHG Reporting Rule under common ownership or control that are located on contiguous or adjacent properties in physical contact or separated solely by a public roadway or right-of-way (definition from Subpart A - General Provisions).
