During oil and gas extraction in the Gulf of Mexico (GOM), water and pollutants are produced from wells. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has mandated a permit system to help control the discharge of these waters into the GOM. The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) contains both requirements and standards for discharge in offshore Texas and Louisiana federal waters. This review summarizes permit (GMG290000) requirements, effluent limitations, standard conditions, and monitoring requirements for NPDES general permits in EPA Region 6.
