Summary text/ abstractThe study, "Measurements of Methane Emissions at Natural Gas Production Sites in the United States" by David T. Allen and colleagues will be published in the Journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on Monday, September 16, 2013. The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) together with many oil and gas companies funded and supported this research effort. This new study of methane leakage appears fatally flawed. This important research bears directly on the powerful GHG/global warming effects of methane and thus the implications for regulation and continued widespread development of shale gas. But it has concluded that methane leakage at well sites, selected in time and location by industry participants, is so low as to be nearly trivial. This is a finding at odds with other researchers' work that shows much higher rates.
