Federal law aims to reduce flaring

Natural gas flares light up the sky at an oil facility in North Dakota. Both the state and federal governments are working to reduce flaring.

Efforts to reduce natural gas flaring have hit the federal level.

On Wednesday, Sens. John Hoeven (R-N.D.), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) and Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) introduced the Natural Gas Gathering Enhancement Act on the Senate floor to expedite permitting of gathering lines on federal and Indian lands.
