16 Mar April 8th Comments Due on BLM Methane Rule
March 16, 2016–
BLM Methane Rule Comments Due April 8th. Watch this video on why curbing methane waste is so important.
The proposed BLM Methane Rule is a step in the right direction, but it currently includes flaring exemptions, leak detection and repair loopholes, and lacks proper enforcement mechanisms. The oil and gas industry is fighting the rule insisting that it is unnecessary and over-reaching. Your help is needed to make sure the rule is passed and strengthened.
The proposed rule is available here, and the BLM Fact Sheet is available here.
