The effectiveness and efficiency of regulatory and other policy approaches intended to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from transportation fuels can hinge on the fuel life-cycle analysis (LCA). This report provides a summary of the workshop of the same name, convened in September 2010 by the Climate Change Working Group. It focuses on the LCA for transport fuels from unconventional hydrocarbon sources and associated regulatory issues and implications. Also, it examines these in the context of experience gained in the study of conventional hydrocarbon sources, biofuels, electric vehicles, and other alternatives.

The uncertainties inherent in the data used for emission inventories help inform and improve understanding for the data's use. This is receiving increased attention in order to understand determinations of GHG emissions and emission reductions. This document provides background information, and details, on measurement uncertainty and statistical calculation methods that improve the quality of GHG emission estimations for the oil and gas industry. It is a collaborative effort between Ipieca, the American Petroleum Institute (API) and CONCAWE.
