The proposed rule expands the acts of noncompliance that would result in an immediate assessment under the existing regulations. Thickness for Tank Elements thread The height of the reference point must be stamped on a fixed bench-mark plate or stenciled on the tank near the gauging hatch, and be maintained in a legible condition.
The proposed rule would also clarify when produced gas lost through venting, flaring, or leaks is subject to royalties, and when oil and gas production used on site would be royalty-free. Like Order 5, this rule establishes minimum standards for accurate measurement and proper reporting of all 12t1 removed or sold from Federal and Indian except the Osage Tribe leases, units, unit participating areas PAsand areas subject to communitization agreements CAs.
43 CFR 3174.5 – Oil measurement by tank gauging – general requirements.
It is not applicable to refineries, petrochemical plants, marketinbgul k stations, or pipeline storage facilities operated by carriers. Summary On February 8,the Bureau of Land Management BLM published in the Federal Register a proposed rule that would reduce waste of ap gas from venting, flaring, and leaks during oil and natural gas production activities on onshore Federal and Indian leases.
Corrosion rateli fe of tank components willv ary widely with location, environment, service, typoef fluid, and corrosion mitigation techniques elected by the ownedoperator. The changes proposed as part of this proposed rule would allow the BLM to strengthen its policies governing production verification and accountability by updating Order 3’s requirements to address changes in technology and industry practices that have occurred in the 25 years since Order 21r1 was issued, and to respond to recommendations made by the Government Accountability Office GAO with respect to the BLM’s production verification efforts.
Includes a new section on flare gas recovery. The BLM is rescinding the novel requirements pertaining to waste-minimization plans, gas-capture percentages, well drilling, well completion and related operations, pneumatic controllers, pneumatic diaphragm pumps, storage vessels, and leak detection and repair LDAR.

The section you are viewing is cited by the following CFR sections. The proposed rule addresses Facility Measurement Points FMPssite facility diagrams, the use of seals, bypasses around meters, documentation, recordkeeping, commingling, off-lease measurement, and the reporting of incidents of unauthorized removal or mishandling of oil and condensate. The BLM is also revising other provisions related to venting and flaring and is adding provisions regarding deference to appropriate State or tribal regulation in determining when flaring of associated gas from oil wells will be royalty-free.
Posting Guidelines Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. The Bureau of Land Management BLM is proposing new regulations to reduce waste of natural gas from venting, flaring, and leaks during oil and natural gas production activities on onshore Federal and Indian leases.
On February 8,the Bureau of Land Management BLM published in the Federal Register a proposed rule that would reduce waste of natural gas from venting, flaring, and leaks during oil and natural gas production activities on onshore Federal and Indian leases. If you wish to comment on the information collection requirements in this proposed rule, please note that the OMB is required to make a decision concerning the collection of information contained in this proposed rule between 30 and 60 days after publication of this document in the Federal Register.

This standard applies only to tanks whose entire bottoms are uniformly supported and in nonrefrigerated service with a maximum operating temperature of 90 degrees C degrees F. It also announces the times and locations of three public meetings to take public input on the proposed rules.
Guidelines are provided for examining principal causes of overpressure; determining individual relieving rates; and selecting and designing disposal systems, including such component parts as spi, flares, and vent aapi. It includes provisions intended to ensure that oil and gas produced from Federal and Indian except Osage Tribe oil and gas leases are properly and securely handled, so as to ensure accurate measurement, production accountability, and royalty payments, and to prevent theft and loss.

The regulations would also clarify when gp gas lost through venting, flaring, or leaks is subject to royalties, and when oil and gas production used on site would be royalty-free. Immediately after the Waste Prevention Rule was issued, petitions for judicial review of the Rule were filed by industry groups and States with significant BLM-managed Federal and Indian minerals.
It also includes appurtenance requirements. The proposed rule would identify certain specific acts of noncompliance that would result in an immediate assessment and would provide wpi process for the BLM to consider variances from the requirements of this proposed rule. Summary The Bureau of Land Management BLM is promulgating new regulations to reduce waste of natural gas from venting, flaring, and leaks during oil and natural gas production activities on onshore Federal and Indian other than Osage Tribe leases.
Reasons such as off-topic, duplicates, flames, illegal, vulgar, or students posting their homework. It contains recommendations for good practices in a the collection of well or lease production, b gauging, c delivery to pipeline carriers for transportation, and d other production storage and treatment operations.

Individual well flare stacks and systems shall be: The changes contemplated as part of this proposed rule would strengthen the Bureau of Land Management’s BLM policies governing production accountability by updating its minimum standards for oil measurement to reflect the considerable changes in technology and industry practices that have occurred in the 25 years since Order 4 was issued. The BLM has concerns regarding the statutory authority, cost, complexity, feasibility, and other implications of the rpp rule, and therefore intends to avoid imposing likely considerable and immediate compliance costs on operators for requirements that may be rescinded or significantly revised in the near future.
