WASHINGTON, D.C. — Christopher Guith, Senior Vice President of the U.S. Chamber’s Global Energy Institute, issued the following statement regarding EPA’s final regulations on methane emissions from oil and gas.
“The Chamber supports the direct regulation of methane emissions from the oil and gas sector and will carefully examine EPA’s final methane rule to determine if it provides the flexibility and encourages the innovation needed to meet growing demands for affordable and reliable energy. The American oil and gas industry has fueled economic growth while taking meaningful steps to reduce and monitor methane emissions, with more to come. As we said in our public comments, this regulation should recognize the critical role that American energy is playing both at home and abroad during this time of global conflict and instability. And regulations must be legally durable, to ensure long-term regulatory certainty for affected businesses.”
