API Applauds Supreme Court Stay of EPA Good Neighbor Rule

202.682.8114 |

WASHINGTON, June 27, 2024 – The American Petroleum Institute (API) today released the following statement from API Senior Vice President and General Counsel Ryan Meyers applauding the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to stay the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ‘Good Neighbor Rule’ and ensure our industry can continue to provide affordable, reliable energy to American consumers at a time of persistent inflation and geopolitical uncertainty: 

“While we support EPA’s goal of reducing emissions, API welcomes the Supreme Court’s decision to stay this flawed rule. Americans are looking for pragmatic energy solutions, not misguided policies that threaten to undermine energy reliability by forcing operators to take pipeline engines — a vital technology to ensure natural gas can reach consumers — out of operations.  The Court’s decision prevents the risk of electric power outages and crippling delays to industrial supply chains for now. Still more is needed from Washington to ensure long-term energy reliability for American consumers.”

API represents all segments of America’s natural gas and oil industry, which supports more than 11 million U.S. jobs and is backed by a growing grassroots movement of millions of Americans. Our approximately 600 members produce, process and distribute the majority of the nation’s energy, and participate in API Energy Excellence®, which is accelerating environmental and safety progress by fostering new technologies and transparent reporting. API was formed in 1919 as a standards-setting organization and has developed more than 800 standards to enhance operational and environmental safety, efficiency and sustainability.
