United Nations: Fossil Fuels Have “Greatest Potential” For Methane Mitigation By 2030
Oil and natural gas systems have the greatest potential for reducing global methane emissions, according to the United Nation’s recent Global Methane Assessment.
Notably, data from this comprehensive analysis show that North American methane emissions from oil and gas systems represent less than 4 percent of anthropogenic and less than 2 percent of total global methane emissions – a testament to the significant strides North American producers are taking to reduce these emissions.
While the study estimates that methane emissions from fossil fuels globally will grow, it also provides multiple industry-specific actions for the industry to reduce its methane footprint at negative or low costs, many of which are already being employed in North America.
