Climate change cited as Mont. leases suspended.
At issue are the greenhouse gases emitted by drilling machinery and industry practices such as venting natural gas directly into the atmosphere.
Industry could easily update their technology and use the emission control devices described in Drill-Right Texas: Best Oil & Gas Development Practices for Texas but, as I’ve mentioned previously, they won’t unless it’s mandated. That’s why Texas OGAP steering committee members worked for a year on Drill-Right Texas. Now it’s time for our legislators to get to work drafting the bills. When the bills are drafted, we need YOUR HELP to get them passed so please sign up for our alerts.
Using emission control technology could eliminate 90% or more of these emissions.
