Operators in oil and gas producing states are seeing some changes when it comes to agencies requesting “representative” or “site specific” gas analyses. 

  • The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) now routinely requires site-specific gas analyses (even for greenfield projects) if a recent analysis from a similar formation are unavailable; site-specific analyses are required for sour sites.
  • Oklahoma DEQ has released a revised proposed guidance document that provides general guidance for determining when it is appropriate to use a representative analysis for oil and gas facilities. The document also details criteria on how representativeness is established.
