Apr 25, 2017 IPAA’s Samantha McDonald Oral Testimony at the Environmental Protection Agency Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization Stakeholder Meeting on EPA Rules
Small businesses are a key part of the industry because oil and natural gas wells naturally deplete over time. Correspondingly, the industry is a “food chain” industry. As large companies want more capital, they sell their lower producing properties to smaller companies that are the primary owners of marginal wells. While many EPA regulations can impact small businesses, these oral comments will address some recent air and waste water regulations. IPAA’s written comments include other regulations.
