Under § 80.67(b)(1), refiners must meet all applicable averaged standards separately for each of the refiner's refineries (i.e., for each facility at which gasoline is produced.) This would include terminals at which RFG is produced through a blending process. However, under § 80.67(b)(3), an oxygenate blender may group "the averaged reformulated gasoline produced at facilities at which gasoline is produced for use in a single covered area."
Therefore, whether the facilities producing RFG for a single covered area may be aggregated for purposes of compliance on average will depend on whether the operation is a refinery operation or an oxygenate blending operation.(11/21/94)
