When Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham directed the New Mexico Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department to develop regulations that reduce the amount of methane emissions from New Mexico’s biggest industry, we knew it would be a heavy lift. But this effort is critical for the health of New Mexico’s environment, climate, citizens and economy.
We are pleased to announce a significant milestone has been reached in reducing methane emissions in the oil and gas industry. After months of hard work and hours of meetings, the Methane Advisory Panel draft report is ready for public review and comment through Feb. 20.
