Devised and delivered by world-class trainers and industry experts online and in person

Course Synopsis

The Methane Masterclass covers methane science, methane reduction strategies and planning, measurement techniques, technologies, policy updates and where to get guidance and support.The course duration is six hours total and it is delivered online over three sessions or over one day in person.

Session 1

The first two-hour session is designed for executives as well as frontline managers. It focuses on the business case and political imperatives around methane mitigation, while providing an overview of best practice and emerging technologies.

Sessions 2 & 3

The next two sessions are interactive, designed for those on the frontline to understand best practices for detection, measurement and quantification, flaring, venting and different ways to reduce methane emissions across the value chain. The instructors are matched with practitioners who will share recent case studies and discuss the technologies that are emerging to support methane mitigation.

“The masterclass offers a unique opportunity to learn from world-class instructors in sustainability and to hear directly from experts who are implementing best practices for methane reduction in their organizations.”
Camilla Williams, Manager of Emissions Management, TC Energy

Intended Learning Outcomes


  • The imperative to reduce methane emissions and the opportunity to leverage methane reductions to address climate change
  • How to identify the potential technological and operational sources of methane emissions
  • How to estimate global methane emissions from all anthropogenic sources, and particularly the contribution from oil and gas supply chains


  • The business-case benefits associated with methane management with respect to revenue loss, safety and social license to operate

  • The key requirements of successful methane management via a gap assessment tool



Appraise your own company’s methane management strategy and plan for improvement



Categorize the nature and distribution of methane emissions arising from different stages of the supply chain and apply this understanding to your assets or in your company’s context



Explore the impact of super-emitters, what they are, why they occur and how they may be tackled
