Methane Masterclass

Next class: September 19-21, 2023

The Methane Masterclass covers methane science, methane reduction strategies and planning, measurement techniques, technologies, policy updates and where to get guidance and support.

The virtual Masterclass will be held in three 2-hour modules and provide participants with an understanding of the following:

  • Understand the imperative to reduce methane emissions and the opportunity to use best practices to address climate change.
  • Identify the business case benefits associated with methane management with respect to revenue loss, social license to operate and safety.
  • Categorise 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 context.
  • Understand how to identify the potential technological and operational sources of methane emissions.
  • Explore the impact of super emitters, what they are, why they occur and how they may be tackled.
  • Understand how to estimate global methane emissions from all anthropogenic sources, and particularly the contribution from oil and gas supply chains.
  • Learn how to apply best practices in methane management at different stages of the natural gas value chain.
  • Define each of the Best Practices and how each contributes toward methane management.
  • Classify and differentiate the many methods of estimation, measurement and reporting of methane emissions, with respect to their costs, benefits and limitations.
  • Identify the key requirements of successful methane management (the gap assessment tool), appraise your own company’s methane management strategy and plan for improvement.
  • Evaluate key mitigation options associated with each Best Practice, with respect to technical feasibility, cost-effectiveness and other key determining factors in investment decisions (using the Best Practices Cost Model).
  • Know where to go to get more information about the Best Practices.
  • Have knowledge of the current and future regulation across different regions, as well as methane related emissions targets (voluntary and enforced).
