The Climate and Clean Air Coalition’s Oil & Gas Methane Partnership (OGMP) released its second set of annual reports detailing the mitigation status of partner companies’ participating operations.
Josu Jon Imaz, CEO of the Spanish oil and gas company, Repsol, announced the publication at the Autumn meeting of the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative in London today.
“Gas can have an important role to play in the transition to a lower-carbon energy future”, said Mr. Imaz. “In order for it to do this, however, it is important to address methane emissions – and important to demonstrate to stakeholders how we are doing this.”
The purpose of the OGMP is to help oil and gas companies better understand where methane emissions can occur, as well as cost-effective ways of addressing them. It provides a protocol by which companies systematically survey their participating operations for nine “core” sources of emissions, and report annually on what they find. Its series of technical guidance documents recommend best-practice mitigation options.
