Cleaning Up Wyoming’s Oil and Gas Emissions
A region in Wyoming has some of the strongest emissions regulation on the oil and gas industry in the country. Companies operating in the Upper Green River Basin are required to reduce air pollutants that lead to ozone. Obama-era methane regulations use the basin’s rules as a model and are now on the verge of enforcement nationwide. With five years of experience under it’s belt, the region can show what works and what doesn’t in reducing its own air emissions.
