[EPA-R02-OAR-2017-0723; FRL-9974-27-Region 2]


Outer Continental Shelf Air Regulations Update To Include New 
Jersey State Requirements

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Proposed rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to 
update a portion of the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Air Regulations 
applying to OCS sources located within 25 miles of states' seaward 
boundaries which must

[[Page 6137]]

be promulgated into the regulations and updated periodically to remain 
consistent with the requirements on the corresponding onshore area 
(COA), which is typically the state geographically closest to the OCS 
source. The portion of the OCS air regulations that is being updated 
pertains to the requirements for OCS sources for which the State of New 
Jersey is the COA. The intended effect of approving the OCS 
requirements for the State of New Jersey is to regulate emissions from 
OCS sources in accordance with the requirements onshore. The 
requirements discussed below are proposed to be incorporated by 
reference into the Code of Federal Regulations and are listed in the 
appendix to the OCS air regulations.

DATES: Written comments must be received on or before March 15, 2018.

I. Background Information

Why is the EPA taking this action?

    On September 4, 1992, EPA promulgated 40 CFR part 55,\1\ which 
established requirements to control air pollution from the Outer 
Continental Shelf (OCS) sources in order to attain and maintain Federal 
and State ambient air quality standards (AAQS) and to comply with the 
provisions of part C of title I of the CAA. Part 55 applies to all OCS 
sources offshore of the states except those located in the Gulf of 
Mexico west of 87.5 degrees longitude.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The reader may refer to the Proposed Rulemaking, December 5, 
1991 (56 FR 63774), and the preamble to the final rule promulgated 
September 4, 1992 (57 FR 40792) for further background and 
information on the OCS regulations.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Section 328(a) of the CAA requires that for such sources located 
within 25 miles of a State's seaward boundary, the requirements shall 
be the same as would be applicable if the sources were located in the 
corresponding onshore area (COA). Because the OCS requirements are 
based on onshore requirements, and onshore requirements may change, 
section 328(a)(1) requires that the EPA update the OCS requirements as 
necessary to maintain consistency with onshore requirements.
    To comply with this statutory mandate, the EPA must incorporate by 
reference applicable rules in effect for onshore sources into part 55. 
This limits EPA's flexibility in deciding which requirements will be 
incorporated into 40 CFR part 55 and prevents EPA from making 
substantive changes to the requirements it incorporates. As a result, 
EPA may be incorporating rules into 40 CFR part 55 that do not conform 
to all of EPA's state implementation plan (SIP) guidance or certain 
requirements of the CAA. Inclusion in the OCS rule does not imply that 
a rule meets the requirements of the CAA for SIP approval, nor does it 
imply that the rule will be approved by EPA for inclusion in the SIP.

II. The EPA's Evaluation

What criteria were used to evaluate rules to update 40 CFR part 55?

    In updating 40 CFR part 55, the EPA reviewed the New Jersey 
Department of Environmental Protection (``NJDEP'')'s air rules 
currently in effect, to ensure that they are rationally related to the 
attainment or maintenance of Federal and State AAQS or part C of title 
I of the Act and that they are not designed expressly to prevent 
exploration and development of the OCS and that they are applicable to 
OCS sources. 40 CFR 55.1. The EPA has also evaluated the rules to 
ensure they are not arbitrary and capricious. 40 CFR 55.12(e). The EPA 
has excluded New Jersey's administrative or procedural rules,\2\ and 
requirements that regulate toxics which are not related to the 
attainment and maintenance of Federal and State AAQS.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Each COA, which has been delegated the authority to 
implement and enforce part 55, will use its administrative and 
procedural rules as onshore. However, in those instances where EPA 
has not delegated authority to implement and enforce part 55, as in 
New Jersey, EPA will use its own administrative and procedural 
requirements to implement the substantive requirements. See 40 CFR 
55.14(c)(4).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

III. What action is EPA proposing to take?

    To comply with the statutory mandate of Section 328(a)(1) of the 
CAA, the EPA must incorporate by reference all relevant state rules 
into part 55 so they can be applied to OCS sources located offshore. 40 
CFR 55.12 specifies certain times at which part 55's incorporation by 
reference of a state's rules must be updated. One such time a 
consistency update must occur is when any OCS source applicant submits 
a Notice of Intent (NOI) under 40 CFR 55.4 for a new or a modified OCS 
source. 40 CFR 55.4(a) requires that any OCS source applicant must 
submit to EPA a NOI before performing any physical change or change in 
method of operation that results in an increase in emissions. EPA must 
conduct any necessary consistency update when it receives an NOI, and 
prior to receiving any application for a preconstruction permit from 
the OCS source applicant. 40 CFR 55.6(b)(2) and 55.12(f).
    On December 21, 2017, the EPA received a NOI for a new OCS source 
off the coast of New Jersey. In today's action, the EPA is proposing to 
update the ``New Jersey'' section of Appendix A to 40 CFR part 55 to 
incorporate by reference the following relevant New Jersey air 
pollution control rules that are currently in effect:
    Chapter 27 Subchapter 2--Control and Prohibition of Open Burning

IV. Incorporation by Reference

    In this rule, the EPA is proposing to include in a final EPA rule 
regulatory text that includes incorporation by reference. In accordance 
with requirements of 1 CFR 51.5, the EPA is proposing to incorporate by 
reference the NJDEP air rules that are applicable to OCS sources and 
which are currently in effect. These regulations are described in 
Section III (``What Action is EPA Proposing to Take?'') of this 
preamble. The EPA has made, and will continue to make, these materials 
generally available through www.regulations.gov and at the EPA Region 2 
Office. Please contact the person identified in the FOR FURTHER 
INFORMATION CONTACT section of this preamble for more information.

V. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under the Clean Air Act, the Administrator is required to establish 
requirements to control air pollution from OCS sources located within 
25 miles of states' seaward boundaries that are the same as onshore air 
control requirements. To comply with this statutory mandate, the EPA 
must incorporate applicable onshore rules into part 55 as they exist 
onshore. 42 U.S.C. 7627(a)(1); 40 CFR 55.12. Thus, in promulgating OCS 
consistency updates, the EPA's role is to maintain consistency between 
OCS regulations and the regulations of onshore areas, provided that 
they meet the criteria of the Clean Air Act. Accordingly, this action 
simply updates the existing OCS requirements to make them consistent 
with requirements onshore, without the exercise of any policy 
discretion by the EPA. For that reason, this proposed action:
     Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' subject to 
review by the Office of Management and Budget under Executive Order 
12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993); and 13563 (76 FR 3821, January 
21, 2011);
     Does not impose an information collection burden under the 
provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.);
     Is certified as not having a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.);
     Does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or 
uniquely affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded Mandate 
Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 04-4);
     Does not have Federalism implications as specified in 
Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999);
     Is not an economically significant regulatory action based 
on health or safety risks subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 
19885, April 23, 1997);
     Is not a significant regulatory action subject to 
Executive Order 13211 (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001);
     Is not subject to requirements of section 12(d) of the 
National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 
note) because application of those requirements would be inconsistent 
with the Clean Air Act; and
     Does not provide the EPA with the discretionary authority 
to address, as appropriate, disproportionate human health or 
environmental effects, using practicable and legally permissible 
methods, under Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994).
    In addition, this proposed rule does not have tribal implications 
as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), 
because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more 
Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and 
Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities 
between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, nor does it impose 
substantial direct costs on tribal governments, nor preempt tribal law.
