The Louisiana Mid-Continent Oil & Gas Association (LMOGA) issued the following statement regarding the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposed methane rule.

“Today the EPA announced sweeping domestic policies to cut emissions of methane from oil and gas operations across the United States and we look forward to reviewing the proposed changes,” said Lori LeBlanc, LMOGA Interim President. “LMOGA supports the regulation of methane, while continuing to build on the progress our industry has made in methane reductions.

"The oil and natural gas industry is committed to working together toward our common goals for the environment, and LMOGA understands the need for effective and sound regulations that reduce emissions while also allowing us to continue supplying the affordable, reliable energy our country counts on every day.”
