Oil and Gas Methane Partnership (OGMP) 2.0 Framework


The Oil and Gas Methane Partnership (OGMP) methodology was created by the Climate and Clean Air Coalition in 2014 as a voluntary initiative to help companies reduce methane emissions in the oil and gas sector. Through participation in the OGMP associated reporting, companies were provided with a credible mechanism to systematically and responsibly address their methane emissions, and to demonstrate this systematic approach and its results to stakeholders. Over the years, stakeholders have become increasingly interested in understanding companies’ actual methane emissions performance and in highlighting their work on reducing methane emissions a robust methane reporting framework focused not only on reductions, but also on actual methane emissions performance is sought for the OGMP. Hence, the framework of the OGMP was revised.

The OGMP 2.0 Reporting Framework overhauls the existing OGMP reporting framework with the intent of fostering an improved understanding which then leads to strategic action while enhancing transparency for civil society and governments. Accordingly, it has been designed to:

  • Broaden the understanding of methane emissions across all oil and gas segments;;
  • Improve the credibility of methane reporting to better inform methane-reducing challenges and best practice through a more robust and consistent reporting framework; and
  • Stimulate growth in OGMP participation from current non-members in the oil and gas industry by providing a roadmap to meet the reporting expectations of the gold standard.
