Federal government issues new regulations governing natural gas waste
The U.S. Bureau of Land Management enacted new regulations on Nov. 15 requiring a reduction in the amount of natural gas wasted through release to the atmosphere through venting, flaring and leaks during oil and natural gas production on federal and Indian lands. The rule is meant to reduce the amount of natural gas used in flaring by 49 percent and reduce the amount of gas lost through venting and leakage by 35 percent.
