CONSOL EnergyRegulatory Support Project Close
CONSOL energy (CONSOL) contracted SLR to perform gas sampling, analysis, and reporting in Southern West Virginia. The need for regulatory support increased as they quickly requested additional permitting, compliance, and spill prevention control and countermeasure (SPCC) program support. Building from this successful project work, the SLR team was then requested to execute a complex project to support CONSOL in complying with the newly issued West Virginia Aboveground Storage Tank (AST) Legislation of 2014. This work consisted of registration, inspection, creation of and issuance of spill prevention response plans (SPRPs), and certification for over 3,300 ASTs throughout the state of West Virginia.
SLR’s recent consulting stature with CONSOL has grown into supporting the operator with various permitting and compliance
projects in each of the Eastern states where CONSOL operates. Recent regulatory scopes of work have included leak detection
and repair (LDAR) program support identifying potential areas for improvement, air permitting development for West Virginia, Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania production and midstream operations, and regulatory guidance regarding Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) newly developed Information Collection Request (ICR) surveys. SLR believes that our long term relationship across multiple departments within CONSOL will continue to be key in supporting our client’s best interests and regulatory needs in the years to come, as shale exploration and development continue to expand in the north east region of the US.
