Subpart W Reporting Form

An integrated reporting form that combines all of the Subpart W segments by source type as listed in 98.236 is available for download at Reporting Form Instructions.
You may also refer to Optional Calculation Spreadsheet Instructions to download the Subpart W calculation spreadsheet. The EPA has also posted a Subpart W Calculation Tool Updates page (contains errata and assistance) to help Subpart W reporters identify and correct issues in the earlier versions of the optional Subpart W Calculation Tool.

Subpart W includes eight segments wtih separate reporting requirements:

  • Offshore Petroleum and Natural Gas Production
  • Onshore Petroleum and Natural Gas Production
  • Onshore Natural Gas Processing
  • Onshore Natural Gas Transmission Compression
  • Underground Natural Gas Storage
  • Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Storage
  • LNG Import and Export Terminals
  • Natural Gas Distribution

Please prepare a separate version of the reporting form for EACH segment for which your facility must report. The Subpart W upload page as shown above will allow the user to upload multiple reporting forms. Only one reporting form may be uploaded for each segment; if you attempt to upload a reporting form representing a segment that has been previously uploaded the new file will over-write the previous.

All facilities will use the Subpart W Introduction page of the reporting form to identify the facility, the GHGRP Facility ID, the segment being reported, and several other data items. This page also provides a summary of emissions by source.The remainder of the Subpart W reporting form is organized by source including:

If you intend to make a request to use Best Available Monitoring Methods (BAMM) for Reporting Year 2014 that request must be submitted through e-GGRT by September 30, 2013. e-GGRT has a revised Subpart W BAMM request module which will be used for all Subpart W BAMM requests. For more information on this module click Subpart W BAMM Help.

After you have successfully uploaded your reporting form, the upload page will be updated to reflect the file you have uploaded. During the upload e-GGRT will generate a validation report which will list potential deficiencies or issues with your reporting form.

If you attempt to upload a file but your file is not accepted by e-GGRT it is generally because your file has a critical error or is missing essential data - e-GGRT calls these critical errors screen errors. The reason why the file was not acceptable is displayed as a screen error message on the upload page. For an example of a screen error message, see below.
