EPA To Rescind Methane Regulations For Oil and Gas

Public Policy

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will sign and issue new rules this week that will get rid of certain methane gas emission requirements for oil and gas producers, The Wall Street Journal reported Monday.

Unidentified administration officials told the newspaper that the new rules will include getting rid of requirements for producers to have systems and processes to find methane leaks. They will also end EPA oversight of smog and emissions from pipelines and storage sites and lessen monitoring and reporting requirements for certain pollutants, the Journal reported.

The new rules have most of the major elements of proposals from 2018 and 2019, according to the newspaper.

An EPA spokesperson told The Hill that the rule is “still under interagency review” when asked for comment on the report.

In 2019, the agency proposed eliminating requirements for oil and gas companies to install technology for monitoring methane emissions from pipelines, wells and facilities.

In 2018, it proposed reducing the frequency of monitoring methane emissions of oil and gas wells to every two years and compressor stations that help transport natural gas to just once a year.

However, the Journal reported Monday that the administration would forgo the measures that would have reduced the inspection frequency due to difficulty in justifying them legally.

The 2018 proposed rule also aimed to reduce qualifications for engineers that need to certify that emissions-capturing equipment is used and allow for more “alternative” technologies to limit pollution, reduce emissions reporting requirements and exempt many natural gas processing plants from monitoring.

Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas that can be 25 times more impactful than carbon dioxide in equal quantities. In 2018, it accounted for nearly 10 percent of all U.S. greenhouse gas emissions caused by human activity.

    “Today’s Republicans care about one thing: owning the libs. And nothing will own the libs more than outright stealing the election and then taunting the majority of voters with “waddaya gonna do about it.” This is waaay better than winning legitimately. And that’s why they love Donald Trump. He is just as petty, vengeful, crude, stupid and mean as the average playground bully. And they respect that more than anything.”

    Another day of watching the US spin down the drain. The circus side show, they call ‘The Elections’, is getting closer and closer to never happening. Two old psychos with mental problems not even debating the ‘differences’. How the ‘democracy’ has crumbled! Banana republics have more freedoms.

    Who could have guessed how 2020 was going to unfold? Who can guess how it will end? Or what 2021 will be like? Not me. Stay tuned.

    Davy, why don’t I believe that? Could it be your long time record of lies and bullshit? I have no pity for you. Stuck in Amerika is not a good outlook for your future life.

    Now you can experience some of what Terrorist Amerika has done to many other millions in foreign lands. It was OK when it was happening over there to keep you in luxuries. Now it has come home to roost in Amerika. Blow back is a nasty bitch isn’t it?

    Biden and Harris will be mostly associated with endorsing looting and burning. Probably not a winning strategy. And Biden drooling and dementing and looking like a walking corps won’t do much good either.

    unfortunately, today’s china is a learned nation with respect to western history and its struggles against muzzies. that’s why supertard bochen777 advised CCP to harvest all muzzies. And by a piece of gigantic miseducation of uncle sam, supertard bochen777 convenient forgets his history lesson and advised america to have “sex with white women”

    Seeking to seal his victory, whitey supertard president Leo the 3rd had the retreating muzzie fleets pursued by sea. The neighboring Bulgar tribes were persuaded by Leo’s “gifts and promises” to attack and massacre as many as 22,000 of the battle-weary and starved muzzies.

    yeah and the other big harvesting of muzzies was by ghengis khan and of course modern day china

    Total BS, being an old civilization means nothing in this globalized world. China is so far removed from its earlier history yet you think that matters. It means nothing. The Chinese are rendering the world inhospitable and you defend them as God’s gift to earth. Why don’t you move to China if you love the place so much?
