EPA offers states chance to oversee methane rules
from Argus Media
U.S. oil and gas companies bristling at the idea of the federal government overseeing their efforts to cut methane emissions could have another option, if states approve their own rules that are equally as stringent. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency tomorrow will formally publish rules requiring oil and gas companies to limit methane emissions from new and modified equipment. The rules, which the agency first released on May 12, will set first-time national standards for how often companies have to search for leaks, along with the rate of methane emissions from new and modified equipment.
