DENVER, September 3, 2019 – Lynn Granger, executive director of the Colorado Petroleum Council, provided the following statement in response to the Adams County Board of Commissioners’ adoption of new rules and regulations on the natural gas and oil industry.
Fact: U.S. methane emissions are down even as America continues to produce more affordable, reliable, and cleaner natural gas. While U.S. natural gas production grew more than 50 percent from 1990 to 2017, methane emissions dropped 14 percent. In the Permian Basin, production surged 100 percent from 2011 to 2017, but methane emissions relative to production declined nearly 40 percent. In the Eagle Ford basin, production grew 130 percent over the same time period, and methane emissions relative to production fell nearly 70 percent.
WASHINGTON, August 29, 2019 – The American Petroleum Institute (API) issued the following statement in response to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) release of draft revisions to its New Source Performance Standards for the oil and gas sector.

WASHINGTON, August 15, 2019 – Total U.S. petroleum demand averaged 20.8 million barrels per day (mb/d) in July 2019, which represented a 0.9% year-over-year increase and the highest demand for the month since 2005, according to the latest Monthly Statistical Report released today by the American Petroleum Institute (API). The increase in demand came as the U.S. continued to sustain world-leading production, which continues to meet virtually all global oil demand growth. This production cushion combined with high refinery utilization is furthering U.S energy security and benefiting American consumers.
WASHINGTON, August 12, 2019 – API welcomed the Department of the Interior’s (DOI) action to clarify and improve the implementation of the Endangered Species Act through the reduction of duplicative and unnecessary regulations that ultimately bog down conservation efforts.
