Recently, we have been verifying, measuring and reporting on CO2, nitrous oxide and methane emissions in the Middle East region.

Why is methane emission reduction important?

When it comes to global warming, methane is 84 times more damaging to the environment than CO2. Therefore, action must be taken to minimize the amount of methane released into the atmosphere. Reducing methane emissions also provides the added benefit of enabling organizations to retain a valuable commodity for sale – there has been a significant amount of self funding in this area.

The International Energy Agency has determined that conventional onshore oil and conventional onshore gas are responsible for almost half of the methane emissions from the entire oil and gas industry. Therefore, in order to meet sustainability objectives, this part of the industry must take action to reduce the release of this potent greenhouse gas.
