Type: Proposed Rule

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing three amendments to the existing National Oil and Natural Gas Federal Implementation Plan (National O&NG FIP) that applies to new true minor sources and minor modifications at existing true minor sources in the oil and natural gas production and natural gas processing segments of the oil and natural gas sector that are locating or expanding in Indian reservations or in other areas of Indian country over which an Indian tribe, or the EPA, has demonstrated the tribe's jurisdiction. The National O&NG FIP, which includes a mechanism for authorizing construction of true minor new and modified oil and natural gas sources, satisfies the minor source permitting requirement under the ``Federal Minor New Source Review (NSR) Program in Indian Country'' (referred to as the ``Federal Indian Country Minor NSR rule''). We are proposing two amendments to apply the National O&NG FIP to the Uintah and Ouray Reservation (U&O Reservation) portion of the intended Uinta Basin Ozone Nonattainment Area.
