TIPRO Reaction to New Earthworks Flaring Report

Austin, Texas – Today, Earthworks released a report entitled, "Flaring in Texas: A Comprehensive Government Failure." The Texas Independent Producers & Royalty Owners Association (TIPRO) has reviewed the report in its entirety -- the following statement can be attributed to Ed Longanecker, president of TIPRO: 

“This is an unserious report that should not fool anyone. The authors ignore or dismiss anything that might contradict their preconceived and politically-driven narrative, including the fact that flared gas volumes in Texas have fallen more than 70 percent over the past two years and that methane intensity in the Permian Basin has also fallen 77 percent since 2011. Worst of all, this report arrives at the absurd conclusion that Texas should stop permitting new oil and gas development. The economic devastation from that kind of 'solution' would be orders of magnitude worse for Texans than cherry-picked conclusions drawn from this report."
