Oil & Gas
The Oil and Gas Industry must be especially prudent in monitoring the environmental and public health impact of its actions, especially with the rise of hydraulic fracturing. Hazardous waste produced from this industry are generally regulated by the RCRA, but some are subject to the E&P Exemption, which classifies them as nonhazardous wastes and passes regulatory duties over to another governing body. Each law developed under the RCRA is required to be reviewed and revised at least every three years.
The oil and gas industry can be broken down into three sectors: upstream, midstream, and downstream. Upstream is comprised of exploration and production (E&P), midstream is processing and refining of upstream products, and downstream is further refining and marketing (R&M). Each of these sectors has different waste disposal and safety regulation needs.
Because regulations in this particular industry are subject to relatively frequent changes, it can be a challenge to stay up to date if you are not in the business of doing so. Let the experts at Clean Management Environmental Group, Inc. keep track of that for you, so that you can focus on your business.
