This Water Quality Benefits Analysis (WQBA) evaluates some of the effects of current discharges and projected benefits of the final effluent limitations guidelines and standards for the coastal subcategory of the oil and gas extraction industry point source category. The WQBA considers two separate geographic areas: coastal areas of Louisiana and Texas adjacent to the Gulf of Mexico and Cook Inlet, Alaska. The WQBA examines potential impacts for produced water discharges in both geographic areas, and potential impacts from drilling fluids and drill cuttings discharges in Cook Inlet. Three types of benefits are analyzed: quantified and non-monetized benefits, quantified and monetized benefits, and non-quantified and non-monetized benefits.
