Governor Mark Gordon has issued a statement in response to the Biden Administration's announcement that it would be enacting new methane regulations for the oil and gas industries through the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Governor Gordon says, "EPA's latest announcement to regulate methane for new infrastructure and existing facilities adds yet another level of uncertainty to the operations of Wyoming’s oil and gas industry. This is happening just as our industry moves onto more solid footing, with increasing rig counts and the return of jobs in this sector.
“Wyoming, in fact, preceded the federal government in regulating methane emissions more than a decade ago. Rather than gum-flapping, it would have been better to have recognized the efforts of Western states that are already far ahead on this issue.”
