Ryan Streams: How EPA’s changing Greenhouse Gas Inventory is redefining methane emissions mitigation
This event is open to:
EPA’s recently proposed updates to the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program for the oil and gas industry will completely overhaul how companies track and reduce methane emissions. Learn how these proposed changes interact with the OOOOb and OOOOc methane leak detection and mitigation standards, as well as with the methane fees laid out in the Inflation Reduction Act.
Attendees will gain insights on the biggest changes to EPA’s Greenhouse Gas Inventory and Reporting Program, and what it’s likely to mean for companies as they grapple with new methane fees. Ryan will share learnings from Kairos Aerospace’s own work with the nation’s leading oil and gas upstream and midstream companies, as well as what these findings mean for the future of the industry and our efforts to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions.
