EPA Enforcement Initiatives: Agency Puts Oil & Gas in Crosshairs

First published in The American Oil & Gas Reporter, May 2016

By Andrew Stewart and Jay Rothrock

Andrew Stewart and V&E senior associate Jay Rothrock recently authored an article on EPA’s recent National Enforcement Initiatives (NEIs) for 2017-2019, giving an overview of NEIs relevant to the oil and gas industry. In furtherance of these initiatives, EPA will focus its enforcement resources on several regulatory programs relevant to the oil and gas industry, including those related to methane emissions reductions, well activity on public lands, hazardous air pollutant emissions, and measures to reduce the risk of accidental releases at industrial and chemical facilities. The Agency’s focus shows that the oil and gas industry—and the upstream sector in particular—should expect to remain in the federal crosshairs for years to come. Read the entire article here.
