OVERVIEW

This project responds to the request by Iraq’s Ministry of Environment for services that seek to deliver training workshops and guidance for developing a national methane emissions inventory, a methane mitigation assessment, and legislative framework for the oil and gas sector to support Iraq in meeting its mitigation goals for the oil & gas sector. The project will also explore opportunities for including black carbon emissions reduction as a mitigation goal for the country. 

EXPECTED PROJECT OUTCOMES

  • The government has increased capacity for methane emissions inventory development for the oil and gas sector. 
  • The government has a methane mitigation assessment for the oil and gas sector. 
  • The government develops a new legislative framework to support mitigation goals. 

MINIMUM REQUIRED OUTPUTS

The project should deliver at a minimum:   
 

  • Training workshops and support tools delivered to national institutions to develop a national methane emissions inventory for the oil and gas sector using the IPCC guidelines. This includes training on refined data methodologies, monitoring, reporting and evaluation. The training would also include the use of the country Methane Abatement Tools (and any related guidelines if available) and information on black carbon emissions reduction from flaring. 
  • A methane mitigation assessment for the oil and gas sector, including an assessment of the institutional arrangements, the policy and regulatory environment, the cost of implementation, and a monitoring and evaluation framework for methane mitigation to help Iraq implement its mitigation goals in the oil and gas sector. 
  • A legislative framework to support the implementation of Iraq's mitigation goals in the oil and gas sector considering the inputs generated by the methane mitigation assessment.
