Regulators have created an interactive map showing methane emissions from the oil and natural gas industry across the state of New Mexico. The map shows thousands of oil and gas facilities that are regulated by the Environment Department’s Air Quality Bureau.

You can also see where production is happening. Environment Secretary James Kenney says the map will help in understanding the effects that oil and gas production has on air quality. 

He says it also shows which producers are working to reduce emissions.
