ROOM 147 A/B
THE ROLE OF VOLUNTARY ACTION IN METHANE MANAGEMENT (WORKSHOP)
Bill Wehrum, Assistant Administrator, Office of Air and Radiation, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
Voluntary mechanisms in the oil and gas industry play an important role in providing the tools and support necessary to implement successful, transparent methane management programs, whether at the company level or at a national level. This Workshop will focus on how current partners are taking full advantage of their widely recognized voluntary programs, specifically the Global Methane Initiative, the Climate and Clean Air Coalition’s Oil and Gas Methane Partnership, the US EPA’s Methane Challenge Program, the ONE Future Coalition, and API’s Environmental Partnership; resulting in increased operational efficiency, safety, and environmental benefits, in a cost-effective manner.
