About the event

The NSPS Subpart OOOOb/c was promulgated on March 8, 2024, and will become effective on May 7, 2024. One of historical elements of this new regulation is the requirements of continuous monitoring of flare performance. This will be the first time that flares in the upstream and midstream oil and gas facilities are required to be continuously monitored, and there will be thousands of flares affected by this regulation. The flare monitoring requirements (and exemptions) are complex in regulatory language and technically challenging. For some facilities, the flare monitoring will directly affect their GHG reporting in amended Subpart W and the methane fee mandated by the Inflation Reduction Act starting 2024.

Providence Photonics has been developing advanced and cost-effective flare monitoring technologies for over a decade. It has worked closely with EPA on flare monitoring methods. The methods invented by Providence Photonics have been cited in the preamble to OOOOb/c as alternative methods that can simplify the compliance, ease the compliance burden, and save cost! With thorough understanding of the flare monitoring requirements in OOOOb/c as well as expected amendment to Subpart W and the new Waste Emission Charge (WEC) rule, the instructor of this webinar will distill the complex regulatory requirements into easy-to-follow charts and provide a road map to compliance and cost saving.

Registration is FREE for this webinar. 

Speaker: Yousheng Zeng, Ph.D., PE

Dr. Yousheng Zeng spent the first 22 years of his career as an air quality consultant helping clients managing their air quality regulatory compliance and the past 12 years developing technologies to fill the long-standing technological void in flare measurement and monitoring. He invented the alternative flare monitoring methods referenced in the OOOOb/c promulgation. Dr. Zeng has served on EPA Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC) Ambient Air Monitoring and Methods Subcommittee and served as expert witness in multiple litigations.
