Grants to this Grantee
for the Path to a Low-Carbon Future: Natural Gas at the Crossroads project  
This is a program support grant for the Environmental Defense Fund’s methane abatement work. The grant funds three general areas of work. First, to identify and work in three to six states where the state oil and gas commissions can institute rules to reduce methane emissions from oil and gas production. Second, to use the experiences gained from working in the states to advocate for methane emission standards to the Environmental Protection Agency. Finally, to promote methane emission and best-practice drilling standards on federal lands from the Department of the Interior. This builds off successful work to regulate methane emissions in Colorado and Texas.
