Overview

Sources that hold an Air Contaminant Discharge Permit (ACDP) or Title V operating permit in Oregon are required to report greenhouse gas emissions to DEQ if the source emits equal to or greater than 2,500 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (MTCO2e) during the calendar year.

Deadline

DEQ has delayed the deadline for the reporting of 2020 emissions by Air Permitted Sources to April 30, 2021. In future years, sources must annually report by March 31 following the emission calendar year, unless otherwise established by DEQ.

Overview

Fuel suppliers and In-State Producers must report the greenhouse gas emissions resulting from the complete combustion of all fuels they supply for use in Oregon. While the Oregon greenhouse gas reporting rules apply to all Oregon licensed fuel sellers and dealers as well as any person that distributes more than 5,500 gallons of certain tax-exempt fuels (or 10,500 gallons of propane) the annual reporting obligation is limited to certain entities operating within the fuel distribution system.

Reporting requirements apply specifically to distributors that own and disburse fuel from Oregon terminal storage facilities, referred to as position holders, companies that produce fuel in-state and supply it for use in Oregon and certain distributors that import fuel from out of state.

Entities subject to reporting must do so using the Oregon Fuels Reporting System.  This system will be available to users in February 2021 for the reporting of 2020 emissions data.
