Secretary Jewell and BLM Director Kornze:
Oil and gas companies waste tons of emissions each year from their operations on our public lands. Learn more about this issue here.
Not only is sending all that gas into the air bad for our environment, but every bit of emissions companies choose to waste is exempt from royalties our schools are owed. It adds up: A new report puts that number at more than $50 million wasted since 2010.
President Obama has proposed new rules requiring oil and gas companies to be more efficient, close leaks and capture excess gases - all part of a strategy to limit methane emissions by 45% by 2025. BLM wants to hear from you.
We'll deliver your comments to BLM when you complete this quick form.
