Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions shrank while Canadian natural gas and liquids byproduct output grew during the 2012-2021 period, according to government records compiled by the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP).

Annual GHG discharges from gas, condensate and lighter fluids production dropped by 22% to 50 million tons in 2021 from 64 million tons in 2012. Annual methane emissions by Canadian gas and liquids production fell by 40% to 15 million tons in 2021 from 25 million tons in 2012.

“Canada’s conventional producers are demonstrating we can grow energy production to address energy security while also lowering emissions,” said CAPP President Lisa Baiton.
