• The EPA tomorrow will issue the first U.S. standards aimed at curbing methane emissions from the oil and natural gas industry, WSJ reports.
• The rules, which will affect only new oil and natural gas wells, will require companies to install technologies to monitor and limit inadvertent emitting of methane during the production and transmission process of natural gas, and require new practices such as regular inspections for leaks.
• Meanwhile, a new study says the Bakken oil-producing region of North Dakota and Montana leaks 275K tons/year of methane, a sizeable amount but less than previously believed.
• Companies with a Bakken presence include: CLR, ERF, EOG, HK, HES, MRO, OAS, QEP, SM, STO, TPLM, WLL
