Bishop: Methane Plan Flies in Face of Technological Reality


WASHINGTON, D.C., August 18, 2015 -

Today, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released its proposal for limiting methane from the oil and natural gas industry.  Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) issued the following statement in response:

“The EPA’s plan to limit emissions flies in the face of technological reality. The truth is that while the oil and natural gas industry has greatly increased production on state and private lands, methane emissions have actually fallen. This proposal is another unprecedented attack aimed at federal control of our nation’s energy production, with the goal of stopping new production. Additionally, the rule targets Indian lands, which will further limit tribes’ ability to develop their own lands. The Obama Administration continues to prioritize the fantasies of the environmental Left over American energy security and economic growth.”
