Oil companies clamp down on methane leaks
from Houston Chronicle
Many of the country's largest oil and gas drillers said Dec. 5 they will voluntarily reduce emissions of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, even as the Trump administration takes steps to roll back existing environmental regulations targeting those emissions. Under a voluntary program announced by the American Petroleum Institute, 26 companies would begin implementing new standards that include employing advanced leak detection technology and replacing older equipment prone to leaks across their U.S. operations.
