Tell us how you’re reducing methane emissions

Oil & Gas Sector

The GMI Oil & Gas Subcommittee focuses on identifying and deploying practical and cost-effective methane mitigation technologies and practices. The Subcommittee’s objective is to reduce or eliminate emissions from oil and natural gas systems by encouraging collaboration between Partner Countries, Subcommittee members, and Project Network members. Through engagement, the Subcommittee aims to build capacity, develop strategies and markets, and remove technical and nontechnical barriers to methane mitigation project development. Ultimately, this support can increase environmental quality, improve operational efficiency, and strengthen the economy from additional methane brought to market.

Identifying and Evaluating Opportunities for Greenhouse Gas Mitigation & Operational Efficiency Improvement at Oil and Gas Facilities (2020)

This document presents introductory guidance on a pragmatic, integrated approach to identifying, evaluating, and advancing cost-effective, high-impact opportunities to manage greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and energy use at oil and natural gas facilities. The focus is primarily on key sources of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCP). The primary audience for this document includes company managers, facility operators, and relevant service providers outside of North America (particularly where other regulatory guidance for GHG reductions and energy management may not be available).
