Annotation: This review by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) examined whether the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has the data needed to make key decisions regarding air emissions from oil and natural gas production. The OIG recommends that the EPA develop and implement a comprehensive strategy for improving air emissions data for the oil and gas production sector, prioritize which oil and gas production emission factors need to be improved, develop additional emission factors as appropriate, and ensure the NEI data for this industry sector are complete.
