A challenge by Oklahoma City’s Continental Resources to the new Environmental Protection Agency rule on methane standards for the oil and gas industry contends the EPA illegally expanded its authority beyond what is authorized.

Continental was joined by Oklahoma and Texas and 22 other states in taking on the giant agency used by the Biden administration to wage his war on fossil fuels. The oil company contends it’s an illegal move by the EPA and beyond what is authorized by the Clean Air Act.

Denver attorney Paul Seby represents Continental Resources and was recently interviewed by the Denver Gazette.
