Action Withdrawn

Title of Regulation: 9VAC5-40. Existing Stationary Sources.

Statutory Authority: § 10.1-1308 of the Code of Virginia; Clean Air Act (§§ 110, 111, 123, 129, 171, 172 and 182); 40 CFR Parts 51 and 60.

The State Air Pollution Control Board has WITHDRAWN the regulatory action for 9VAC5-40, Existing Stationary Sources, which was published as a Notice of Intended Regulatory Action in 37:18 VA.R. 2639 April 26, 2021. This action is being withdrawn because the need for this regulatory action has been overtaken by other events. The primary focus of the regulatory action was on transmission and storage, including pipelines, compressor stations, and underground storage associated with the natural gas transmission and storage sector, and gathering/boosting compressors and gas processing plants associated with production and processing. Secondary focus was on production and processing, including drilling and well completion, producing wells, and gathering lines. The regulatory action panel for this action will be recalled and reorganized as an ad hoc group in order to assist with the report to the General Assembly due July 2023.
