Howard Feldman's testimony at the 2015 Ozone NAAQS Proposed Rule Public Hearings (January 29, 2015)API’s members engage in all aspects of the oil and gas industry and operate facilities and produce products impacted by regulations adopted to meet the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) under the Clean Air Act (CAA). The oil and gas industry has made significant contributions to cleaner air.
Since 1990, the oil and gas industry has invested more than $284 billion in improving its products and processes. America’s abundant supply of natural gas has contributed to lower criteria and greenhouse gas emissions. A combination of cleaner gasoline and diesel fuels, modernized equipment and facilities, and more fuel-efficient vehicles have helped reduce emissions of air pollutants by 62 percent between 1980 and 2013—even as vehicle miles traveled went up over 95 percent. Progress is clear --- ozone concentrations under the current rules have dropped by 18 percent since 2000.
