EPA Takes Aim At Methane, Seeks Feedback
Methane emissions from hydraulically fractured natural gas wells in the United States have dropped by nearly 79% since 2005. Total methane emissions have dropped by 11%. Companies are capturing natural gas at the wellhead after a well is completed instead of flaring it, capitalizing on what could have been wasted gas. Proactive states—including Colorado, Ohio and Wyoming—have taken matters into their own hands by successfully implementing monitoring and repair programs. Despite these efforts, the oil and gas sector remains one of the largest contributors of methane emissions, next to the agriculture industry. Data from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimate that methane emissions from oil and gas production, as well as natural gas processing and transmission, were 148.3 million metric tons carbon dioxide equivalent in 2013. The potent greenhouse gas—the main component of natural gas, a threat to public health and a contributor to climate change—has escaped from oil and gas sites as a result of both unintentional leaks and intentional venting.
