Title: Review of New Sources and Modifications in Indian Country: Amendments to Federal Implementation Plan; Managing Air Emissions From New and Modified True Minor Sources in Oil and Natural Gas Production 

The EPA is proposing to amend the Federal Minor New Source Review(NSR) Program in Indian Country and the Federal Implementation Plan (FIP) for True Minor Sources in Indian country in the Oil and Natural Gas Production and Natural Gas Processing Segments of the Oil and Natural Gas sector (National O&NG FIP). The amendment would potentially reduce, by up to 30 days, the time between a source owner/operator’s submission of required endangered Species Act (ESA)/ National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) screening documents and beginning construction. Specifically, the amendment would allow for concurrent, rather than sequential, submission of two sets of documents: Part 1 Registration Form (Part 1 Form) to register applicability under the National O&NG FIP, and documentation supporting completed screening procedures (screening procedures documentation) for the evaluation of potential impacts of their proposed projects on threatened or endangered species and historic properties (protected resources). The proposal also seeks to further clarify the 30-day period before construction may begin, and the potential forms of written notification by the EPA Regional Office to source owner/operators. Finally, this proposal addresses minor edits to correct incorrect citations and cross references.
