This project takes a three-pronged approach to limit fossil fuel expansion by:

  1. Preventing new onshore and offshore oil and gas development outside the Gulf of Mexico;
  2. Defending and expanding Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) methane emission limits on oil and gas operations; and
  3. Challenging and limiting the expansion of natural gas processing, pipelines, and export facilities. 

These actions will help advance the requirement of a climate test for fossil fuel activities and infrastructure in U.S. states and eventually influence federal oil and gas policy.
