OTTAWA The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers on Monday recommended a loosened approach to regulating methane emissions from oil and gas sites, just as Alberta prepares to table its draft policies aimed at limiting emissions of the gas.In a list of recommendations, CAPP called for a so called average approach to meet industry methane targets, which would essentially judge methane emissions levels across the industry rather than on a site by site basis.Industry has long claimed that it should be allowed to cut the cheapest and simplest methane emissions first, and then move onto larger and more unwieldy sources of the pollutant in order to meet its targets in a cost effective way.is a core piece of what we asking for, said Tim McMillan, the president and CEO of CAPP.Methane is about 100 times more potent as a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, according to scientists, although it does not linger nearly as long in the atmosphere. It is often emitted through flaring or in leaks from pumps, valves and other infrastructure on oil and gas sites.CAPP recommendations come as Canadian governments increasingly tighten regulations around methane emissions.Alberta could release its draft methane regulations as early as Wednesday, several people said Monday. Government officials said the regulations would be tabled in the next few days.Ottawa released its own draft proposals in May of this year, and is currently in consultations with stakeholders over the policy.McMillan warned against the kind of instrument policy proposed under Environment Minister Catherine McKenna, which he argues would be too costly for industry amid a years long slump in commodity prices.draft proposals fall into the very prescriptive category of policymaking, he said.

By its own admission, Apple is somewhat hamstrung in its options for its mountain of money. During the conference call, Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer said that the company is holding $64 billion outside the United States. That not unusual for a huge global company like Apple, which does so much business overseas.
