Nigeria committed to reducing the emission of Short-Lived Climate Pollutants (SLCPs) emanating from activities and processes within its border, which has informed the preparation of National SLCP...
Through our implementing partners Clean Air Task Force (CATF) and Carbon Limits Nigeria, several activities were carried out to develop the needed capacity in Nigeria’s Federal Ministry of Environment, Department of Petroleum Resources, and other supporting agencies and ministries:
- A Best Practices Workshop brought together relevant agencies and ministries to build understanding of methane issues and relevant technological and operational solutions.
- Inventory Development Workshops provided insight into ways to improve current estimates of emissions and abatement potential.
- CCAC partners worked directly with Federal Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Petroleum Resources and Department of Petroleum Resources staff to create a road map for developing policies for methane abatement. Support was provided in the form of regulatory text proposals and recommendations for using this work to inform Nigeria’s revised NDC.
- A final report and regulatory framework for implementation (draft guidelines to abate methane emissions from the Nigerian oil and gas industry) was presented to the ministries and Department of Petroleum Resources which aimed to be used as reference for the revision of the Oil and Gas section in Nigeria’s revised NDC report for 2020.
