U.S. EPA and U.S. DOE to Provide More than $1 Billion to Reduce Methane Emissions from Oil and Gas Sector

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Energy (DOE) have partnered to provide over $1 billion in funding from President Biden’s Investing in America Agenda to reduce wasteful methane emissions from the oil and gas sector. This collaboration will leverage the EPA and DOE’s joint expertise in advancing methane monitoring and reduction technologies, with the DOE National Energy Technology Laboratory bringing expertise in quantifying and reducing methane emissions from leaks and inefficient operations. The EPA will develop the regulatory elements of the Methane Emissions Reduction program, while the DOE will work on the financial and technical assistance aspects of the program. These investments are part of President Biden’s agenda to combat climate change and make communities healthier and more resilient.
