Oil Gas Extraction - Refining Sector - ADEQ Draft Permit

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) recently released an updated draft of its proposed multisector industrial stormwater discharge general permit, known officially as the AZPDES Multi-Sector General Permit, or MSGP 2010. This permit, once promulgated, will replace the existing industrial stormwater permit, which expired in 2005.

Review a summary of the ADEQ Industrial Stormwater Permit

The proposed permit details requirements for 30 different industrial sectors. The draft permit does not include requirements for Oil and Gas Extraction and Refining Sector (Sector I). Sector I covers a fairly broad range of facility types, including crude petroleum and natural gas, natural gas liquids, oil and gas field services, drilling oil and gas wells, and petroleum refining. These requirements are still being drafted and according to ADEQ will be included in the final draft which will be put on public notice.
