The operation of fuel combustion equipment (such as engines, heaters, reboilers, and boilers) in the oil and gas midstream segment is a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions.
Regulation No. 22, Part B, Section III established the Midstream Steering Committee (MSC), which is a technical working group tasked with developing guidance and plans to achieve statewide reductions in greenhouse gas emissions from fuel combustion equipment in the oil & gas midstream segment. The work of the MSC is an important part of the actions to be taken, pursuant to HB 21-1266, to ensure that the state meets its greenhouse gas reduction targets for the industrial sector in the GHG Roadmap.
The MSC is composed of representatives from several groups, including the electric utility sector; the midstream segment; local governments; and the general public (including environmental organizations and representatives of a disproportionately impacted community).
The duties of the MSC include information gathering, creation of guidance documents, and development of emission reduction plans. For more details on the duties, deadlines, and required representation of the MSC, refer to the Committee Charter, and Regulation No. 22, Part B, Section III.
