Statement on Shell Support of Methane Rules

Royal Dutch Shell is an important producer in Pennsylvania and has set a strong standard for industry leadership.

The Pennsylvania Environmental Council applauds Shell for opposing the rollback of the EPA methane rule and supporting stronger regulation for new and existing sources. We look forward to working with Shell to ensure the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection adopts its own existing source rule that comprehensively addresses methane.

We encourage other companies to do the same and support commonsense rules that cut methane emissions and protect Pennsylvania’s climate.
