"Release of EPA Methane Rules Expected This Week"

"EPA is preparing to release two new draft rules this week that could dramatically reduce the role that oil and gas production plays in driving climate change.

The methane proposals for new and existing petroleum infrastructure would apply to production, processing, storage and transmission — a much broader swath of the oil industry than was regulated under President Trump.

One of the proposals being reviewed by the White House yesterday applies to older, leakier facilities that experts say supply the majority of oil and gas methane."
