Federal Agency Perspectives Regarding Stray Gas and Related Research Initiatives

David Russ
David Russ, Northeast Region U.S. Geological Survey. Federal Agency Perspectives Regarding Stray Gas and Related Research Initiatives With the recent Executive Order that led to the establishment of an EPA, DOE, & DOI memorandum of understanding to coordinate research on natural gas development, we will have a panel of agency representatives to discuss individual agency and coordination of initiatives related to stray gas issues.
