Title: Geologic Basin Boundaries (Basins_GHGRP) GIS Layer
Abstract: This is a coverage shapefile of geologic basin boundaries which are used by EPA's Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program. For onshore production, the "facility" includes all emissions associated with wells owned or operated by a single company in a specific hydrocarbon producing basin (as defined by the geologic provinces published by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists). This layer is limited to the contiguous United States.
Purpose: This is a coverage of geologic basin boundaries which facilities subject to reporting requirements under Subpart W, Onshore Petroleum and Natural Gas Production must report their emissions. EPA layer for GIS mapping purposes.
