On May 23, 2019 the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the release of its Spring 2019 Unified Agenda of Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions, which provides updates to the public about the agency’s regulatory activity.

It’s a lengthy list that includes several actions affecting oil & gas as well an action affecting stationary compression ignition engines, and an action affecting marine diesel engine emissions. Each individual action listing includes a brief abstract of the action to be taken as well as a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) date as well as a rulemaking deadline.

Actions affecting oil & gas

Actions affecting Stationary CI engines and Marine Diesel Engines

  • Standards of Performance for Stationary Compression Ignition (CI) Internal Combustion Engines Amendments. NPRM: June 2019, Final Rule: June 2019. This action plans to amend the Standards of Performance for Stationary Compression Ignition (CI) Internal Combustion Engines (40 CFR part 60, subpart IIII) to provide regulatory relief for owners and operators of stationary CI engines in remote areas of Alaska.
  • Amendments Related to Marine Diesel Engine Emission Standards. NPRM: June 2019, Final Rule: November 2019. EPA will propose to amend 40 CFR part 1042 to address concerns about the limited availability of certified Tier 4 engines that are appropriate for certain vessels. The rule may also include a variety of technical amendments related to the compliance provisions for marine diesel engines and the associated vessels.
