The 47 members of the Methane Guiding Principles are committed to work on reducing methane emissions from the oil and gas industry by developing and sharing tools and guidance on measurement, monitoring and mitigation.
An Eye on Methane: International Methane Emissions Observatory 2022 Report
Methane Guiding Principles, in collaboration with the Global Gas Flaring Reduction Partnership and the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative, has launched the Methane Flaring Toolkit, a free-to-use resource to help reduce methane emissions from flaring.
Methane Guiding Principles launches new Methane Policy Toolkit to support policy makers as they step up action to reduce oil and gas methane emissions
Over 120 countries have joined the Global Methane Pledge, which seeks to collectively reduce all methane emissions from human activities by at least 30% below 2020 levels by 2030. According to analysis from the International Energy Agency, strong action to reduce emissions from the oil and gas sector could bring the world half-way to meeting that target.
The UN Environment Programme (UNEP), with support from the European Union, today launched a new Observatory to drive action on reducing methane emissions – a powerful greenhouse gas responsible for at least a quarter of the current climate warming.
Gas system operators in joint effort to continue curbing emissions and to support the Global Methane Pledge
Making climate neutrality a reality is a top priority for the European Commission,
as it is for the European gas industry. Representing around 4% of total European1
methane emissions, gas system operators have significantly decreased methane
emissions since 1990, thanks to the implementation of several mitigation measures.
IOGP has put the topic of methane, and the work being done by MGP, firmly in the spotlight in their latest ‘Pulse’ newsletter. Read full article →
Methane Emissions Reduction Workshop, co-hosted by Woodside Energy, Beijing Gas and the China Gas Association
A Methane Emissions Reduction Workshop, co-hosted by Woodside Energy, Beijing Gas and the China Gas Association (CGA), was hosted during the China Gas Development Forum in Chengdu under the Methane Guiding Principles (MGP) framework. Ms. Han Jinli, Chief Engineer of Beijing Gas, moderated the workshop. She pointed out that methane emissions control across the complete…
