This final economic impact analysis (FEIA) examines compliance costs and economic impacts resulting from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Effluent Limitations Guideline and Standards for the Coastal Subcategory of the Oil and Gas Extraction Point Source Category (Coastal Guidelines) in compliance with Section 301 of the Clean Water Act (CWA). The compliance costs of the final Coastal Guidelines arise from technologies to control several wastestreams: produced water, which is a byproduct of oil production; drill cuttings, which are pieces of rocks and gravel that come up with drilling fluids; drilling fluid and associated effluents; and treatment, workover, and completion (TWC) wastes, which are produced when wells are worked over to keep them productive. The FEIA estimates economic impacts on both the project and firm level in terms of annualized compliance costs; oil and gas production losses; and changes in equity, working capital, and other indicators of financial health. In addition, the FEIA considers impacts on federal and state revenues, national-level output, employment and associated impacts on affected communities, foreign trade, new sources, and small entities.
