The US Environmental Protection Agency is set to unveil a proposal that would step back from federal regulation specifically targeting methane emissions at oil and gas facilities, potentially staving off requirements for a million existing US wells.
Acting EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler told the Senate Wednesday he was working to implement President Donald Trump's move to rollback environmental regulation "posthaste."
Tax incentives for the wind industry should be eliminated, Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt said Monday.
US President Donald Trump's administration has drawn heavily from the energy industry lobby to build its team for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is expected to propose regulations which will be aimed at reducing methane emissions by between 40 and 45% from the oil and gas sector over the next decade. The move is part of a wider strategy in place which is looking to reduce both greenhouse gases as well as combating climate change.
