Balancing Environmental Obligations in the Oil Industry

The oil and gas industries are central to the American economy, and are essential fuel sources for millions. It is largely up to American oil and gas businesses to assure that these resources are made available. In order to accomplish this, there are many things that these businesses need to do to meet necessary licensing and operating requirements that go beyond those of many other types of businesses, largely due to environmental concerns. 

Considerations for Air Permit Procedures

Following air permit procedures is important to assure that violations don't cause any license suspensions. Some things that might challenge this includes:

  • Problems with the control of natural gas releases
  • Proper venting of pressure vessels
  • Adjacent Properties in oil or natural gas businesses
  • Unauthorized discharges and reportable quantities

How Businesses Address Potential Environmental Concerns

The Title V Program is what is used to enforce that oil and similar businesses follow the regulations in a way that calls for efficient and safe operations.

Businesses need to monitor the impact on air quality in many ways through various channels. They achieve this through:

  • The Ambiant Air Monitoring Program
  • Air Toxics Monitoring
  • National Abiant Air Quality
  • Enviroflas and others

With many different regulations, most oil companies do their best to serve their customers, while keeping environmental concerns at the forefront of their plans. But sometimes, despite their best efforts they are accused of violations that may put their licensing, and business operations at risk. If this happens to your business, it is important to re-center yourself with strong legal representation that will help you get back on track with minimal disruption.
