In EPA Charts Middle Path for Making “Stationary Source” and “Major Source” Determinations, Matt Morrison and Bryan Stockton discuss the EPA’s new final rule applicable to upstream and midstream emission sources in the oil and gas sector. In particular, they discuss the EPA’s new definition of “adjacent,” a definition that is a key factor in determining whether there is a single “stationary source” for purposes of the Prevention of Significant Deterioration and Nonattainment New Source Review programs or a “major source” for purposes of the Clean Air Act Title V operating permit program.
