On March 2, 2017, the EPA withdrew its information collection request (ICR) regarding methane emissions from existing oil and gas facilities. EPA finalized and issued the underlying ICR on November 10, 2016. Since that time, EPA sent letters to thousands of owners and operators in the oil and gas industry, requiring them to complete surveys regarding their existing facilities. EPA’s withdrawal of the ICR is effective immediately. According to the EPA’s website, industry members who previously received a letter requiring a survey response associated with this particular ICR are “no longer required to respond.”
