Kaplan Kirsch & Rockwell provides representation across the spectrum of efforts to reduce methane emissions, generate methane offsets and other credit programs. We utilize our deep legal and technical experience in state and federal rulemakings to secure reforms in proposed regulations aimed at strengthening controls on methane emissions. Our Methane Regulation practice is also closely connected to our State and Federal Climate Policy and Air Quality practices.
While our work on methane is national in scope, we are intimately involved in state efforts to mitigate methane emissions from Colorado’s oil and gas sector. We often represent clients in rulemaking proceedings before state regulatory agencies, including the Colorado Air Quality Control Commission, Air Pollution Control Division and the Energy and Carbon Management Commission (formerly the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, COGCC), and have achieved meaningful economy-wide methane reductions through our advocacy. We also defend legal challenges to state methane regulations.
