Emission Reduction Options for the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Storage, Import, and Export 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 liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage, import, and export segment contributes 1% 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 80% of the total emissions from offshore petroleum and natural gas production. 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.
