The recent rollback of rules requiring oil and gas producers to monitor for and repair methane leaks has generated much discourse about environmental policy and the long-term sustainability of the oil and gas industry. Methane emissions from oil and gas operations are a point of increasing scrutiny, particularly as the investment community takes steps to incorporate ever greater guidance from environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles. Many oil and gas firms are already taking steps to address methane emissions as they strive to reduce their environmental footprint. Join the Center for Energy Studies for a discussion about the importance of addressing methane emissions, the recent rollback of the methane rule, the steps being taken by firms in the oil and gas industry and the possible solutions to an important challenge to sustainable operations.
