Are there standards that control methane emitted from existing oil and gas facilities (the facilities on the Threat Map)?

  • In Colorado, yes. In 2014, Colorado became the first state to directly regulate oil and gas methane emissions from new and existing sources.
  • At the federal level, no. But the Environmental Protection Agency is conducting an Information Collection Request that could lead to standards.

Are there standards that control methane emitted from new or modified oil and gas facilities emitting this pollution?

The best way to make change is to make more people aware that there’s a problem that needs fixing.

Call your Senators!

Tell them that:

  • People living with oil and gas pollution now need help ASAP; and
  • We must protect our methane pollution standards and cut toxic air pollution from the 1.2 million existing oil and gas facilities around the United States.
