Methane emissions are a chief concern across the oil and gas value chain. In this video, divided into three segments, Sean McGovern and Gary Steinbauer, both shareholders with Law Firm Babst Calland, discuss methane mitigation and how players in the energy space can best handle it. In the first segment, Steinbauer discusses the Biden administration’s approach to methane emissions in the energy sector, including proposed regulatory changes in the EPA’s Methane Rule. In the second segment McGovern discusses abandoned and orphaned wells, how they are being plugged, and the help that operators can receive from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law that passed in 2021. In the final segment, both attorneys offer step-by-step advice to operators in Appalachia trying to navigate a slew of updated regulations.
