Overview
This is a program support grant for the Environmental Defense Fund’s methane abatement program. The grant funds three general areas of work. First, to identify and work in three to six states—including Pennsylvania, California, and Oklahoma—where the state oil and gas commissions can institute rules to reduce methane emissions from oil and gas production. Second, to participate in the public rulemaking process by submitting expert evidence for the strongest possible federal methane rule. Finally, to promote methane emission standards and best-practice drilling standards on federal lands from the Department of the Interior. This work also supports creating market mechanisms to avoid the costly build out of gas infrastructure in the United States.
