Need To Know - EPA Exaggeration

Dear Friend,

A study published by the American Petroleum Institute and America's Natural Gas Alliance reveals that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) methane emission estimates from hydraulic fracturing are double the actual discharge figures.

The industry-sponsored study tested emissions from approximately 91,000 wells nationwide. Conversely, the EPA used assumptions to craft agency standards.

Hydraulic fracturing has revolutionized oil and natural gas production, leading to larger energy supplies. Magnolia State energy producers utilize this technology to recover natural gas from the Tuscaloosa Shale formation, creating good paying jobs in southwest Mississippi.

The EPA and the president's pocket-book environmentalists want the federal government to regulate hydraulic fracturing. The fact is that most energy producing states rely on this practice. Accordingly, states should decide how to best protect their local environments.

I encourage you to visit my website to learn the facts about what I am doing to rein in the EPA's overreaching regulations.

God bless,

Gregg Harper

Member of Congress
