Colorado becomes first to limit methane emissions statewide

Colorado recently became the first state to enact air quality rules that included measures to regulate methane emissions from oil and gas drilling.

Oil and gas companies will be required to install technology that captures 95% of gas leakage from pipes and equipment, a major source of methane emissions.

Anadarko (APC), Noble Energy (NBL) and Encana (ECA) supported the move, agreeing that some common sense rules were needed to allow the industry to move forward, but the Colorado Oil and Gas Association says the regulations will prove more expensive than believe, upwards of $100M rather than $40M.
