TXOGA Statement on Flaring Recommendations

June 16, 2020

The following can be attributed to Todd Staples, president of the Texas Oil and Gas Association:

“The Texas Oil & Gas Association supports the Texas Methane and Flaring Coalition’s recommendations that will have a meaningful impact on flaring reductions and establish a clear pathway toward ending routine flaring. This report is the latest step in an important and ongoing process that will include operators, regulators and other stakeholders as we work toward our common goal of reducing flaring. Continued innovation and technology implementation will enable job and economic growth and further the industry’s leadership role in the stewardship of Texas’ natural resources and environment.”



Founded in 1919, TXOGA is the oldest and largest trade association in the State representing every facet of the Texas oil and natural gas industry.
