Abstract Information :
For the oil and gas industry to fulfil its obligations and commitments to reduce methane emissions, it is essential that the major sources of methane emissions are accurately measured and technologies deployed that allow reductions to be made with confidence. It is imperative that the industry addresses the most significant sources of methane as a priority.rnFor many companies in the oil and gas industry, flaring is a major source of methane emissions. In recent years, initiatives such as the World Banks Zero Routine Flaring by 2030 initiative have resulted in significant efforts to end routine flaring. rnTo help the oil and gas industry better understand and effectively manage methane from flaring, the Methane Guiding Principles, in collaboration with the World Banks Global Gas Flaring Reduction Partnership and the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative, will launch a free-to-access, online tool in May 2022. The tool was developed by a consortium of organisations including upstream producers, downstream users, and non-governmental organisations. rnThe tool features the different technologies that address methane measurement from flaring. It supports the user through each of the key questions they need to consider when assessing methane from flaring. The tool includes information on how to measure flare volumes and compositions accurately, through to identifying when a flare has a problem, and the various new tools and techniques for measuring combustion and destruction efficiency. Filters allow the user to short-list those technologies pertinent to their individual circumstances. Case studies drawn from industry and academia showcase how technologies have been used and the impact they can deliver.rnThe online tool will be accessible through a dedicated website MethaneFlaringToolkit.com and also through the World Bank Global Gas Flaring Reduction Partnership website.
