This data tool presents the IEA’s country-by-country estimates of energy-related methane emissions.
Methane is responsible for around 30% of the rise in global temperatures since the Industrial Revolution, and rapid and sustained reductions in methane emissions are key to limiting near-term global warming and improving air quality.
Company members participating in reporting under the OGMP 2.0 Reporting Framework (Framework) are required to submit an implementation plan describing how they will achieve the ‘gold standard’ of reporting by the agreed dates (3 years for operated assets and 5 years for non-operated assets).
Country/venture/asset level reporting is the lowest reporting level for the OGMP 2.0.
There are two types of flares, elevated and ground flares. Elevated flares are more common and typically have larger capacities than ground flares.
