Natural gas transmission and storage segment


In 2019, the Air Quality Control Commission adopted an extensive but flexible emission reduction program for this segment in Regulation Number 7, Part D, Section IV. The program establishes a Colorado downstream transmission segment intensity target to reduce emissions. The program also requires the establishment of a Steering Committee; methane emissions inventory; an intensity target, to be achieved through company-specific BMP plans; recordkeeping and reporting; and continual improvement provisions.

The Steering Committee charter includes additional details on these program elements.

Steering Committee Charter 

The program requires the downstream transmission segment to report emissions annually, beginning in 2022.

The program requires the Steering Committee to determine the segment-wide methane emissions intensity target.

Additional program documents and guidance discussed in the charter will be posted as they are developed.
