Methane emissions occur in all sectors of the natural gas industry, from production, through processing and transmission, to distribution. These emissions are primarily from normal operations, maintenance, fugitive leaks and system upsets. In addition to natural gas operations, methane emissions can result from the oil industry, primarily from field production operations, such as venting of associated gas from oil wells, oil storage tanks, and production-related equipment such as gas dehydrators, pig traps, and pneumatic devices. All of these emissions sources represent an opportunity to capture an otherwise wasted resource. The links below show the major emission categories in each sector of the industry, as well as related technologies to help mitigate emissions from these sources.
