EPA: Training On Proposed Methane Rules - Zoom (Thru Nov. 18)

Nov 16 2021 - 1:30pm to Nov 18 2021 - 6:00pm
Zoom TX

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is taking a significant step forward in fighting the climate crisis through a proposed rule that would reduce methane and other harmful pollutants from the oil and natural gas industry. 

To help engage with our stakeholders on the proposed oil and natural gas methane rule, EPA will host three half-day training events. The training will provide: background information on the oil and gas production process; an overview of the proposed rules; panel discussions with environmental justice communities, tribes, and small business stakeholders; and information on how to effectively engage in the regulatory process.

This event will be open to the public; however, the targeted audiences are communities/environmental justice stakeholders, tribes, and small business stakeholders. These events will be held using Zoom, and a toll-free call-in number will be available.

Dates: Nov. 16, Nov. 17 and Nov. 18, 1:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. EST. Details on website link.
