    Program Overview:

    On May 12, 2016, the Environmental Protection Agency released its first ever regulations directly regulating methane emissions from new and modified sources in the oil and gas sector.  The EPA also released a proposed information collection request to inform its evaluation of potential regulatory requirements for methane emissions from existing oil and gas sector sources.  Methane has a global warming potential more than 25 times greater than carbon dioxide.  The Administration considers the new regulations as an important part of its commitment to lower U.S. methane emissions from the oil and gas industry between 40 and 45 percent by 2025 compared with 2012 levels in line with the President’s Climate Action Plan. This webinar will convene experts in the area to discuss the details of the new regulations and the implications for the oil and gas sector.

    Moderator: Shannon Broome, Katten Law

    Panelist: Andres Restrepo, Sierra Club
