MARAMA is offering training concerning air quality and oil and gas facilities intended for regulatory staff working with oil and gas facilities in their jurisdictions. After the training, participants will be able to identify equipment used at oil and gas facilities, identify fault conditions that might result in emission to the air, estimate air emissions from the equipment and generally understand the potential environmental impact of oil and gas facilities. Attendees will be able to state the difference between conventional oil and gas facilities and unconventional, or “fracked” facilities. Class topics include:
1) Overview of oil and gas operations;
2) Air emission and other potential impacts;
3) State and federal regulations including NSPS and NESHAP requirements
