The Clock Starts on New Compliance Requirements for Methane Emissions

On June 3, 2016, EPA published New Source Performance Standards for methane and volatile organic compound emissions from the oil and natural gas industry in the Federal Register. The rule will take effect on August 2, 2016, and the first leak detection surveys must be completed by the latter of June 3, 2017, or 60 days after startup. For more information on EPA’s recent rules aimed at the oil and gas industry, read our briefing on this new methane rule and our first post in a series discussing steps that upstream and midstream companies should consider in adapting to the new methane rule.
