Methane emissions FALL amidst increased oil and gas production

The New Mexican oil and gas industry continues to do great work for our state. In spite of increased levels of natural gas consumption nationwide, the U.S. greenhouse gas emissions have fallen to their lowest levels since 1992. New Mexico's oil and gas industry is making incredible progress in reducing methane emissions as production surges in our own portion of the Permian Basin - the world's top producing oilfield and some of the highest natural gas production in the country.
