Isaac Brown, Executive Director of the Center for Methane Emissions Solutions, a national business coalition of companies in the methane emission detection and repair industry issued the following statement in reaction to the Pennsylvania Environmental Quality Boards Decision to implement new methane emissions requirements

“Pennsylvania’s draft rule for existing oil and gas operations saves millions of dollars in natural gas that would otherwise be wasted. Moreover, a robust approach to addressing methane waste is an opportunity to grow Pennsylvania’s economy, and the methane mitigation industry stands at the ready to tackle this problem. Gov. Tom Wolf has smartly backed a more responsible approach to energy development and will help boost family-sustaining jobs, cleaner air, and more secure climate in the process.”
