Oil & Gas

The GMI Oil & Gas Subcommittee focuses on identifying and deploying practical and cost-effective methane mitigation technologies and practices. The Subcommittee’s objective is to reduce or eliminate emissions from oil and natural gas systems by encouraging collaboration between Partner Countries, Subcommittee members, and Project Network members. Through engagement, the Subcommittee aims to build capacity, develop strategies and markets, and remove technical and nontechnical barriers to methane mitigation project development. Ultimately, this support can increase environmental quality, improve operational efficiency, and strengthen the economy from additional methane brought to market.

GMI partner, the International Energy Agency (IEA), has launched an online tool that tracks oil and gas-related sources of methane. The Methane Tracker offers a complete up-to-date picture of methane emissions on a global scale and covers eight industry areas across more than 70 countries.

The goal of the Methane Tracker is to demonstrate methane reduction opportunities that are possible using existing technology.

Videos were taken at various Natural Gas STAR Partner facilities using Infrared (IR) cameras to show leaking and fugitive emissions from various pieces of equipment. The videos highlight the importance of using an IR camera for leak detection because gas leaks are often invisible to the naked eye.

Industries targeted by GMI for strategic efforts to reduce emissions account for more than 50% of the world’s methane emissions. GMI and our Partner Countries have worked to reduce barriers to the recovery and use of methane as a clean energy source.
