The 8 Rule Proposals to Watch for in 2015: Environmental Regulation of the Oil and Gas Industry Continues

November 24, 2014

With a new Republican-led Congress opposing his policies, President Obama will have to place even more reliance on administrative rulemakings to implement his environmental policy. During this hour-long webinar, Sandra Snyder, Grant MacIntyre and Lowell Rothschild presented the 8 most significant rules the Administration is expected to propose in 2015 to further regulate the oil and gas industry.
As part of the Administration’s final regulatory push while it enters its last two years, they anticipate rules on subjects such as: 
  • methane emissions, 
  • water discharges from unconventional wells, 
  • national ambient air ozone standards (NAAQS), and
  • offshore financial assurance.
