Status message

There are 3 Updates appearing in the Federal Register for 40 CFR 98. View below or at eCFR (GPOAccess)
§ 98.326 Data reporting requirements.
In addition to the information required by § 98.3(c), each annual report must contain the following information for each mine:
(a) Quarterly CH4 liberated from each ventilation monitoring point (CH4Vm), (metric tons CH4).
(b) Weekly CH4 liberated from each degasification system monitoring point (metric tons CH4).
(c) Quarterly CH4 destruction at each ventilation and degasification system destruction device or point of offsite transport (metric tons CH4).
(d) Quarterly CH4 emissions (net) from all ventilation and degasification systems (metric tons CH4).
(e) Quarterly CO2 emissions from on-site destruction of coal mine gas CH4, where the gas is not a fuel input for energy generation or use (e.g., flaring) (metric tons CO2).
(f) Quarterly volumetric flow rate for each ventilation monitoring point (scfm), date and location of each measurement, and method of measurement (quarterly sampling or continuous monitoring), used in Equation FF-1 of this subpart.
(g) Quarterly CH4 concentration for each ventilation monitoring point, dates and locations of each measurement and method of measurement (sampling or continuous monitoring).
(h) Weekly volumetric flow rate used to calculate CH4 liberated from degasification systems (cfm) and method of measurement (sampling or continuous monitoring), used in Equation FF-3 of this subpart.
(i) Quarterly CEMS CH4 concentration (%) used to calculate CH4 liberated from degasification systems (average from daily data), or quarterly CH4 concentration data based on results from weekly sampling data) (C).
(j) Weekly volumetric flow rate used to calculate CH4 destruction for each destruction device and each point of offsite transport (cfm).
(k) Weekly CH4 concentration (%) used to calculate CH4 flow to each destruction device and each point of offsite transport (C).
(l) Dates in quarterly reporting period where active ventilation of mining operations is taking place.
(m) Dates in quarterly reporting period where degasification of mining operations is taking place.
(n) Dates in quarterly reporting period when continuous monitoring equipment is not properly functioning, if applicable.
(o) Temperatures (°R), pressure (atm), and moisture content used in Equation FF-1 and FF-3 of this subpart, and the gaseous organic concentration correction factor, if Equation FF-9 was required.
(p) For each destruction device, a description of the device, including an indication of whether destruction occurs at the coal mine or off-site. If destruction occurs at the mine, also report an indication of whether a back-up destruction device is present at the mine, the annual operating hours for the primary destruction device, the annual operating hours for the back-up destruction device (if present), and the destruction efficiencies assumed (percent).
(q) A description of the gas collection system (manufacturer, capacity, and number of wells) the surface area of the gas collection system (square meters), and the annual operating hours of the gas collection system.
(r) Identification information and description for each well and shaft, indication of whether the well or shaft is monitored individually, or as part of a centralized monitoring point. Note which method (sampling or continuous monitoring) was used.
(s) For each centralized monitoring point, identification of the wells and shafts included in the point. Note which method (sampling or continuous monitoring) was used.
