January 14, 2015 — Administration Takes Steps Forward on Climate Action Plan by Announcing Actions to Cut Methane Emissions

The Administration announces a new goal to cut methane emissions from the oil and gas sector by 40-45 percent from 2012 levels by 2025. Building on prior actions by the Administration, and leadership in the States and industry, these series of steps encompass both commonsense standards and cooperative engagement with states, tribes and industry to put the U.S. on a path toward the 2025 goal.

Several voluntary industry efforts to address these sources are underway, including EPA’s plans to expand on the successful Natural Gas STAR Program by launching a new partnership in collaboration with key stakeholders later in 2015. EPA will work with DOE, DOT and leading companies, individually and through broader initiatives to develop and verify robust commitments to reduce methane emissions.
