Oil and Gas Permit Calculations

Use these calculations when applying for a permit for an oil and gas permit. Oil and gas production equipment such as tanks, separators, flares, and boilers are subject to permit even if they are used for short term well tests. Please contact the District regarding our temporary permits to test a well while the permanent facility is designed. A separate permit application must be submitted for the temporary well test permit and the permanent production facility.

Compliance Material

The Rule 331 plan template can be used to prepare an fugitive inspection and maintenance plan for a stationary source. The purpose of the plan is to make sure components are inspected regularly and any fugitive leaks are repaired in a timely manner. It is also used to inventory the components at the facility to track compliance with Rule 331 and leak paths at the facility to track the potential to emit fugitive ROCs. The plan must be updated with new inventories and diagrams whenever there is a change at the facility. The template has highlighted text which should be replaced with information specific to the source.

Please note that application forms (such as Form -01) are also available for download at Download Permit Application Forms.
