U.S. EPA Proposes Updates to Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reporting Requirements for the Oil and Gas Sector

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has put forward proposals to revise the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program, which would improve the accuracy of methane emissions reported by petroleum and natural gas facilities. This would align with the Methane Emissions Reduction Program, part of the Inflation Reduction Act, aimed at reducing climate pollution. The proposed changes would fill gaps in emissions reporting by introducing new sources and incorporating new technologies such as remote sensing, and would take effect from January 1, 2025, with most changes implemented in reports for the 2025 reporting year. The EPA is accepting comments on the proposals for 60 days after publication in the Federal Register.
