EPA regrets to inform participants that we have to cancel the planned session covering Subpart W of the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule. EPA still intends to finalize and release the rule for Petroleum and Natural Gas Systems shortly, and have it be effective no later than December 31, 2010. We plan to offer training and materials on this rule. In lieu of the session scheduled at the Natural Gas STAR conference, we will have at least one webinar and will send out more information soon.
