Title: ●Emission Guidelines for the Existing Oil and Natural Gas Sector 
Abstract:

On March 10, 2016, the Administration and EPA announced the next step in reducing emissions of greenhouse gases (in the form of methane) from the oil and natural gas industry: moving to regulate emissions from existing sources. Methane from the oil and gas industry comes packaged with other pollutants, including volatile organic compounds that help form harmful smog, and a number of harmful pollutants known as air toxics. The agency is currently undergoing a formal process to require companies operating existing oil and natural gas sources to provide information to assist in the development of comprehensive regulations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Agency will use this information, along with existing agency data, to help us determine how to effectively reduce emissions across existing oil and natural gas sources.
