The report explores some of the major themes impacting the SLCFs discussion, and aims to:
- Identify and understand the effects on warming, precipitation, and air quality from methane and black carbon as well as the associated uncertainty
- Assess the sources and sinks of methane and black carbon from a global perspective as well as from the oil and gas industry in particular
- Understand the role of current initiatives to measure, mitigate and manage the emissions of SLCFs
- Discuss remaining gaps in the industry understanding of SLCF emissions, future pathways to reduce uncertainty, and high impact pathways for reducing these emissions
The workshop and this publication are part of IPIECA’s long-term initiative to promote climate change understanding and engage in developing solutions for mitigating risks to both society and the oil and gas industry.
