The report gives results of an oil and gas field emissions survey. The production segment of the oil and gas industry has been identified as a source category that requires the development of more reliable emissions inventory methodologies. The overall purpose of the project was to determine available activity and emission factor data that may be used to develop methodologies for states to use in estimating emissions inventories for oil and gas field operations at the county level. There were four objectives of the project: (1) To gather and compile available activity factors on oil and gas field operations; (2) To gather and compile available emissions data for total and speciated volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from all emissions sources associated with oil and gas field production activities; (3) To identify ongoing studies for the development of emissions data; and (4) To identify activity and emissions data gaps and to recommend future studies to develop necessary data and estimate methologies.
