API supports Biden’s proposed methane regulations


HOUSTON – The American Petroleum Institute, which oil companies were pressured to disassociate themselves with by the U.S. House Oversight and Reform Committee last week, came out in support of Biden’s new methane regulations proposed at the COP26 meeting in Glasgow, Scotland.

“We support the direct regulation of methane from new and existing sources and are committed to building on the progress we have achieved in reducing methane emissions. EPA has released a sweeping proposal, and we look forward to reviewing it in its entirety. We will continue working with the agency to help shape a final rule that is effective, feasible and designed to encourage further innovation,” said Frank Macchiarola, Senior Vice President for Policy, Economics and Regulatory Affairs at API.
