EPA chief floats change to methane oversight
from E&E News
EPA is considering a change to how oil and gas industry methane emissions are counted that could push them below required reporting levels under the Clean Air Act. EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler told an industry gathering May 23 the agency will assess whether the oil and gas sector should continue to be regulated as a single pollution source. He noted there are "significant differences" between the production and processing corner of the industry and the transmission and storage of oil and gas.
