For the purposes of this subchapter, the following definitions apply:
(1) "Emissions minimizing technology" means a technology that reduces the amount of volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from oil and gas well facilities through the use of resource recovery as fuel for process units or technology that results in significantly lower emissions of VOCs through the use of vapor capture and introduction into a pipeline.
(2) "Initial well completion date" has the meaning provided in 75-2-211 (2) (b) , MCA.
(3) "Oil and gas well facility" has the meaning provided in 75-2-103 (13) , MCA.
(4) "Potential to emit (PTE) " means the maximum capacity of a facility or emitting unit, within physical and operational design, to emit a pollutant. Any physical or operational limitation on the capacity of the facility or emitting unit to emit a pollutant, including air pollution control equipment and restrictions on hours of operation or on the type or amount of material combusted, stored, or processed, is treated as part of its design only if the limitation or the effect it would have on emissions is federally enforceable. Secondary emissions are not considered in determining potential to emit.
