Emission Reduction Options for the Natural Gas Distribution Segment
The EPA estimates methane emissions from the oil and natural gas industry in its annual Inventory of U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks. The natural gas distribution segment contributes 16% to the total methane emissions from the oil and natural gas industry. The chart on the right shows the distribution of the top emission sources* in this segment, which represent 97% of the total emissions from natural gas distribution. Click on each emission source category to view one of many appropriate, cost-effective methane mitigation options below. A full list of emission mitigation options can be found here.
