Colorado Passes Tougher Emissions Rules
Colorado became the first state to pass air pollution rules on the oil and gas industry that covered methane, a contributing factor to climate change. The air quality control commissioners passed the rules, which dictate that companies must install devices that capture 95 percent of emissions (including methane). The rules were backed by operators Anadarko Petroleum, Noble Energy and Encana while the Colorado Oil and Gas Association and Colorado Petroleum Association trade groups put up powerful protests.
