Methane Abatement Technology

Wednesday, 5 October
370 A-C
Technical Session
Methane emissions are the second largest cause of global warming today. The IEA estimates that over 70% of methane leakage from the oil and gas industry is technically avoidable with cost-effective methods available today to capture about 45% of methane leaks at average natural gas prices between 2017 and 2021. Action to prevent methane leakage to the atmosphere is one of the most effective ways the energy sector can take to tackle climate change. This session delves into the technology and operational standards; learnings from leak, detection and repair programs; and new innovations to share some of the latest and best methane abatement practices from industry.
