(PUBLIC NEWS SERVICE) – The Environmental Protection Agency has released rules which would for the first time require regular inspections of all methane-emitting oil and gas production sites throughout the country. Groups backing the new rules said they will also pave the way for more jobs in Ohio’s the natural gas industry. The rules are an update to standards the Biden administration released last year. Sarah Spence, executive director of the Ohio Conservative Energy Forum, said in addition to cleaner air, the changes could mean more employment in the methane-capture business, particularly in the state’s Utica Shale region.
