Short summary
We used atmospheric concentrations of hydrocarbons to estimate emissions from regional oil and gas activities in the Eagle Ford Shale in southern Texas to better understand their air quality impacts. While higher hydrocarbons emissions are underestimated, emissions of methane from raw natural gas sources appear lower than the US EPA's current estimate. However, we identified liquid storage tanks as an additional source of methane and as the dominant source of regional hydrocarbon emissions.
