EPA Issues Supplemental Proposal to Reduce Methane and Other Harmful Pollution from Oil and Natural Gas Operations
November 11, 2022 -- EPA is proposing to update, strengthen and expand its November 2021 proposal that would secure major climate and health benefits for all Americans by reducing emissions of methane and other harmful air pollution from both new and existing oil and gas operations. The Agency has issued a supplemental proposal that would achieve more comprehensive emissions reductions from oil and natural gas facilities by improving standards in the 2021 proposal and adding proposed requirements for sources not previously covered.
