AGA Comments on EPA 2013 Draft Inventory of Greenhouse Gas Emissions (March 25, 2013)


AGA s comments applaud EPA s decision to improve the accuracy of the Draft Inventory this year by incorporating new, robust methane emissions data on natural gas production well liquids unloading and the frequency of well refracturing. As a result, the Draft Inventory now estimates the methane emissions rate for the natural gas value chain, from production well to consumer, as 1.35% of produced gas. We believe this is getting closer to reality than the highly inflated estimate in last year s Inventory and should help to provide a more rational basis for energy and environmental policy.
