CEC Approach

CEC assisted PDC by performing applicability determinations for its operations in West Virginia and Pennsylvania. CEC developed a Greenhouse Gas Monitoring Plan, assisted with its implementation, and provided ongoing regulatory support as the rules evolved. CEC participated in the development of PDC’s strategies to use Best Available Monitoring methods and trained field personnel in the collection of data needed to comply with the recordkeeping and reporting requirements of the rules.
