Facts About The BLM Methane Rule

BLM’s Methane and Waste Prevention rule, also called the venting and flaring rule, finalized by the Obama Interior Department late last year is redundant, technically flawed and unnecessary.

The rule could stifle innovations that have led to increased use of cleanerburning natural gas – the main reason U.S. energy-related carbon emissions have fallen to levels not seen since the early 1990s. The rule’s requirements could impede U.S. energy production by shutting in a significant number of wells on federal lands, potentially reducing the availability of affordable domestic energy to American consumers and decreasing revenues to the U.S. Treasury.
