With last week’s launch of The Environmental Partnership, let’s take a more detailed look at the three emissions-reducing programs more than two dozen participating companies have announced as their initial focus: pneumatic controller upgrades, leak detection and well liquids removal. These sound a little technical, yet you don’t have to be a petroleum engineer to understand why the partnership has prioritized them at launch.

The U.S. Senate could vote today on measures addressing the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) regulation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from stationary sources.

On Saturday, February 19th the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 1, the Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, for 2011. The Continuing Resolution (CR), which would fund the government through the end of Fiscal Year 2011, includes provisions that limit funding for several Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) actions that have been called prime examples of the agency overreaching its authority. In lopsided votes, the House voted to cut funding to implement EPA's E15 waivers, its decision block to air quality permits that are a requirement for drilling permits on Alaska's Arctic coast, and its rules to limit greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

EPA has been considering a standard in the 0.060-0.070 ppm range.
