  • Obama administration sets new limits for methane emissions

    The Obama administration set a goal Wednesday of cutting methane emissions from the oil and gas sector by nearly half in the next 10 years with a proposal targeting new wells. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said it will propose rules this...
