Natural gas can have an important role to play in a low-emissions future, with clear benefits when compared with other fossil fuels, particularly in terms of climate impact and air quality improvements, if methane emissions are controlled across the gas value chain.
Over the past years, IPIECA has actively worked with its member companies to improve performance in reducing methane emissions. It has developed a variety of activities, ranging from the organization of workshops to the publication of factsheets, in order to enhance knowledge and to encourage participation among the oil and gas industry and external stakeholders.
The objectives of the workshop will be to:
