Topics to include, Refinery Sector Rules, Oil & Gas Air Regs, and BWON.
Long-time 4C sponsor and training partner, Trihydro, will host 3 training courses at 4C 2018. All those interested in Oil & Gas Air Regulations, BWON, or the recently promulgated new Refinery Sector Rule will find considerable value in these courses.

As a follow-up to the tremendously popular RSR workshop offered at 4C 2017, Trihydro is hosting an extended 8-hour course on RSR focused compliance.
Since the February 1, 2016 promulgation date, refineries have been scrambling to meet compliance deadlines in the revised MACT Subparts CC and UUU regulations, collectively known as the Refinery Sector Rule (RSR). This workshop begins by providing an overview of the regulatory requirements and compliance deadlines affected sources including storage vessels, process vents, fenceline monitoring, flares, catalytic cracking units, and other refinery process units (e.g., sulfur recovery units, reformers, and cokers).
The remainder of the workshop will provide a more detailed and focused look at specific compliance elements for each affected source. The workshop will explore possible methods for identifying flare events, vent gas monitoring options and development of written plans for refinery flares. Establishing fenceline monitoring programs and managing data will also be covered. This workshop will also look at managing process vents and pressure relief device programs under the RSR. We will present shared learnings from development of RSR compliance programs when possible to assist refineries in achieving future compliance.
Trihydro will also offer an updated BWON Fundamentals training course to educate those new to the world of Benzene Waste Operations NESHAPs (BWON). The acronym is a mouthful, but the course is approachable and perfect for those interested in BWON programs.
In this full day workshop, Trihydro will show you how to implement a BWON compliance program efficiently and cost effectively. We realize that things change and people change – this training will help those who are just stepping into BWON roles or who have been in their roles for less than 5 years. Our experienced team has assisted over 50 refinery and chemical plants with BWON consent decree compliance, auditing, and program implementation since the inception of the rule in 1992.
Given the volatile regulatory atmosphere surrounding air compliance, Trihydro is offering this course to bring oil and gas industry members up to speed on the current rules and regulations.
The oil and gas sector has seen massive regulatory change since 2016, particularly with respect to air compliance requirements. Regulations have issued, withdrawn, and modified by multiple regulatory agencies. In addition, challenges to some of these regulations have been made in the courts. The end result is a confusing mix of regulations, policies and expectations.
This workshop will provide some clarity and direction about what the oil and gas sector should be doing now. While not providing formal legal guidance, the workshop will address the compliance challenges confronting upstream and midstream oil and gas companies in meeting EPA and BLM regulations, as well as some evolving issues at the State level. We will particularly focus on EPA’s New Source Performance Standard (NSPS) OOOOa requirements around the implementation of a volatile organic compound (VOC) and methane leak detection and repair (LDAR) monitoring and reporting program as well as associated with the final Bureau of Land Management (BLM) venting and flaring rule (e.g., Waste Prevention) requirements. We will also provide some insights and approaches to recordkeeping and reporting approaches under these programs.
