U.S. EPA Withdraws Rule Changing Deadline for Requesting Alternative Calculation Method for Greenhouse Gas Reporting
April 2, 2013
On April 2, 2013, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) withdrew a direct final rule it issued in February 2013 that required oil and natural gas companies to submit by June 30th of each year a request to use alternative calculation methods for reporting greenhouse gas emissions. EPA received adverse comments on the direct final rule, and will instead address this issue through the proposed rulemaking process.
