Comment Period

    On August 23, 2011, the EPA published in the Federal Register the 
proposed rule, ``Oil and Natural Gas Sector: New Source Performance 
Standards and National Emission standards for Hazardous Air pollutants 
Review.'' In that notice, the EPA announced that all comments must be 
received by October 24, 2011. The EPA conducted three public hearings 
on this proposed rule, the last of which was held on September 29, 
2011, in Arlington, Texas. See 76 FR 53371, August 26, 2011. Under 
section 307(d) of the CAA, the EPA must keep the record open for thirty 
days after completion of the hearings to provide an opportunity for 
submission of rebuttal and supplementary information. Accordingly, the 
public comment period will end on October 31, 2011, rather than on 
October 24, 2011, as originally published.
    The EPA has also received numerous requests for extending the 
public comment period for this proposed rule. This notice only corrects 
the public comment period pursuant to section 307(d) of the CAA. This 
notice does not address the pending requests being considered for 
extending the public comment period.

How can I get copies of this document and other related information?

    The EPA has established the official public docket No. EPA-HQ-OAR-
2010-0505. The EPA has also developed Web sites for the proposed 
rulemaking at the addresses given above.

    Dated: October 14, 2011.

Assistant Administrator for Air and Radiation.
