Methane Mitigation Matters: Oil and Gas Systems
View More Videos »

Methane emissions from oil and natural gas systems are primarily the result of normal operations and system disruptions. These emissions can be cost-effectively reduced by upgrading technologies or equipment, and by improving operations.

The Oil & Gas Subcommittee facilitates cooperative mitigation activities that result in bringing more gas to markets. Subcommittee activities include encouraging collaboration among delegates from Partner Countries and Project Network members to build capacity, develop strategies and markets, and remove technical and non-technical barriers to oil and gas sector methane mitigation project development.

Tools & Resources

ON TIME Tool displays interactive flow diagrams of the oil and gas industry. The goal of the ON TIME Tool is to give users easy access to information on cost-effective technologies and practices that reduce methane emissions in the oil and gas industry. The development of this Tool was sponsored by the Government of Canada Exiting Global Methane Initiative, a Global Methane Initiative partner. The Global Methane Initiative Program would like to acknowledge the Government of Canada for sponsoring this work and the other individuals and organizations that contributed time and resources to facilitate development of the ON TIME Tool.

This Tool is a work in progress and the Global Methane Initiative is soliciting feedback on its usefulness. Please send your comments to the Global Methane Initiative Administrative Support Group.

Various Natural Gas STAR Videos

These 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. The videos show “before and after” footage of a leak using a regular camera, followed by the same footage using an IR camera.
