Substantial gas resources currently are being produced that do not make it to market because they are lost to flaring and leaks across the oil and gas supply chain. Reducing flaring, venting and methane leaks would offer immediate relief to gas markets and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
Regional and country-level information
Estimates of flaring and methane emissions from oil and gas operations, related abatement potentials, additional gas supply, costs and revenues.
Methane abatement technologies include equipment and operational techniques that can be applied across oil and gas value chains to reduce emissions.
