Lower 48 Marginal Oil, Natural Gas Wells Seen Comprising Half of Well Methane Emissions

Lower 48 Marginal Oil, Natural Gas Wells Seen Comprising Half of Well Methane Emissions

A report published by researchers at the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) found that low-producing oil and gas wells are a major contributor to methane emissions from well sites in the Lower 48. The study, published in the Nature Communications journal, found that while these wells produce less than 15 boe/d, they account for about 50%…

Researchers Shed New Light on Methane ‘Ultra-Emitters’ with Satellite Analysis

Researchers Shed New Light on Methane ‘Ultra-Emitters’ with Satellite Analysis

Using what they call “groundbreaking” methods, researchers in a new paper claimed to have found up to 12% of the globe’s methane emissions are coming from massive but often overlooked releases from major oil and gas producing regions. The paper, published Thursday in the peer-reviewed journal Science, used thousands of daily images from a European…

Canada’s Natural Gas Supply Getting Greener with U.S. Imports

Canada’s Natural Gas Supply Getting Greener with U.S. Imports

Though at the expense of lost sales from Alberta and British Columbia natural gas supplies, U.S. gas exports to Canada have fueled a significant reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, according to the Canada Energy Regulator (CER). U.S. exports of 2.6 Bcf/d to Ontario and Quebec fueled the green gain by shrinking cross-Canada flows from…
