Norway Norway flag

Norway was welcomed into GMI on 12 October 2011 and will participate in the Oil and Gas Subcommittee, sharing its experience and technological competence achieved in relation to offshore oil and gas production. Based on data in the national emission inventory from Statistics Norway and the Climate and Pollution Agency (published in May 2011), Norway's 2010 estimated anthropogenic methane emissions totaled 4.3 MMTCO2E. Oil and natural gas systems represent about 16 percent of Norway's anthropogenic methane emissions—about 700,000 MTCO2E, including stationary combustion offshore and in onshore installations (mainly gas terminals)–and an additional 77 percent (3.3 MMTCO2E) come from the agriculture (enteric fermentation and manure management), coal mining, and municipal solid waste sectors.

Norge ble ønsket velkommen i GMIN 12. oktober 2011 og vil ta del i Olje og gass-komiteen. Her skal de dele sin erfaring og teknologiske kompetanse, oppnådd i forbindelse med offshore olje- og gassproduksjon. Basert på data i den nasjonale oversikten over utslipp fra Statistisk Sentralbyrå og Klima- og forurensingsdirektoratet (publisert i mai 2011), var i 2010 Norges menneskeskapte metanutslipp anslått til 4,3 millioner tonn CO2-ekvivalenter. Olje og naturgass systemer representerer rundt 16 % av Norges menneskeskapte metanutslipp – rundt 700 000 millioner tonn CO2-ekvivalenter, inkludert forbrenning og prosessutslipp fra offshore og landanlegg (i hovedsak gassterminaler) – og en ekstra 77 % kommer fra landbruk (tarmgass og gjødselhåndtering), kulldrift og fyllingssektoren

How to use this map Close detail

Methane Sites

The map shows completed and potential methane abatement, recovery, or use projects.

  • Use the check boxes to determine which sites to display on the map.
    • GMI sites are facilities at which methane abatement, recovery, and/or use projects have been identified or completed.
    • Non-GMI sites identify potential or existing projects that are not supported by the GMI.
  • Click a cluster of sites (i.e., numbered circles) to zoom to a region.
  • Click an individual site to view a summary.
  • For more site details click on the highlighted link.

Note: The placement of map icons is approximate, so the zoom-in feature is limited to avoid misrepresentations. Please contact us us if you have more accurate information about the location of a project or site.
