NM Releases Draft Methane Rule

New Mexico has officially rolled out draft rules to reduce methane and other emissions from the oil and gas industry. The proposals released by the New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) and the Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department (EMNRD) are the culmination of countless hours of meeting with experts and consultations with stakeholders and the public. Among the requirements, the draft rules require companies to capture 98% of their natural gas by 2026.

The draft is available for public review and comment. Please provide input on the draft rules to EMNRD and/or NMED by September 30th.

    We will make sure to deliver your comment to the appropriate department before the end of the comment period.
