Short summary
Emissions from oil and natural gas development in the Upper Green River basin of Wyoming are known to drive wintertime ozone production. Fugitive emissions of natural gas and condensate provide sufficient non-methane hydrocarbons (NMHC) to promote episodic ozone formation. A water treatment and recycling facility was identified as a significant source of NMHC, including toluene and m+p-xylene. Emissions from this facility have a strong influence upon peak ozone measured at downwind sites.
