WASHINGTON — The United States can’t afford to wait until it understands the amount of methane escaping from oil and gas wells, pipelines and infrastructure before plugging those leaks, officials said Monday.
“We know enough to act,” said Judi Greenwald, a deputy director for climate, environment and efficiency at the Energy Department, . . .

Under a 2012 EPA rule, companies also have until until Jan. 1, 2015 to begin using so-called “green completion” equipment that can pare volatile organic compounds and methane emissions when natural gas wells are hydraulically fractured. The EPA could seek to expand that requirement to oil wells and could impose new requirements for compressors, pneumatic valves and other equipment.
