Tell us how you’re reducing methane emissions
Oil and Gas

Energy Management Workshop for Upstream and Midstream Operations

List of Events

Date15–7 January 2007
Location: Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Organizer: Petroleum Technology Alliance Canada (PTAC), CETAC-WEST, Environment Canada, and the U.S. EPA
http://ptac.org/workshops1.html
Industry Sector: Oil and Gas
In an era of increasing natural gas demand and sustained high prices, natural gas projects that enhance process efficiency, reduce methane losses and, ultimately, lower costs and add to sales revenues are becoming more attractive. This workshop provided industry and other interested parties with an opportunity to obtain information about cost-effective process optimization and methane emissions reduction technologies and practices. Participants engaged in a peer-based exchange of technical and economic information on practices currently in use today. For more information, see below.
