MSAPR Compliance Optimization

Reducing your cost and risk

What is MSAPR's impact to you?

  • Multi-Sector Air Pollutants Regulations (MSAPR), in force as of June 2016, require owners and operators of stationary spark-ignition gaseous-fuel-fired engines to limit the amount of nitrogen oxides (NOx) emitted
  • Decisions to spend capital to “upgrade” your units for compliance are not straightforward
  • The new rules allow for many options on how to manage your emissions and costs
  • Effective decision making will require that you manage each aspect of this complex problem:
    • Ensure the equipment data is complete and correct
    • Ensure the complexities of the compliance options have been strategically evaluated
    • Ensure operational and technology options have been effectively considered
    • Guarantee least cost of compliance

Recommendations and Optimal Compliance Plan

  • Regulatory NOx reduction milestones
  • Production Decline and Service Levels
  • Acquisitions and Divestitures

We are able to do this effectively by making use of our strong strategic partnerships with emissions testing and engineering companies.
