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

  • In Texas, no.
  • 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 President Obama at 202-456-1111!

Tell him that:

  • People living with oil and gas pollution now need help ASAP; and
  • He needs to direct the Environmental Protection Agency create new standards to cut methane and associated toxic air pollution from the 1.2 million existing oil and gas facilities around the United States.
