Leaks of methane from the US oil and gas industry are about 60 per cent higher than government estimates, new research has suggested, heightening concerns about their contribution to global warming.
A paper published on Thursday in the journal Science, co-ordinated by the Environmental Defense Fund, pulled together a series of previous studies and concluded that other research had underestimated the scale of methane leakage by missing large escapes when equipment malfunctions.
The analysis highlights an issue that is a growing concern for many oil and gas companies.
ExxonMobil and BP have recently set out plans to curb their methane leakage as part of their strategies for addressing the threat of global warming. However regulations imposed by the Obama administration to cut gas escapes were resisted by the industry, and the Trump administration has been attempting to roll back the rules.
The scale of methane leakage from wells, processing plants and pipelines is central to the debate over switching from coal to gas for power generation. Methane is the principal component of natural gas and is a potent contributor to global warming. To stave off catastrophic climate change we need to immediately drop all fossil fuels in favour of conservation and renewables Anthony Ingraffea, Earthworks Gas-fired power plants produce much lower carbon dioxide emissions than coal-fired plants for the same electricity generation, but methane leakage cuts that advantage and could even wipe it out altogether.
If more than 2. The latest research, looking at the single yearsuggests leakage was about 2. The industry and environmental campaigners drew opposing conclusions from the study.
Mr Hamburg of the EDF, which works with companies to achieve improved environmental performance, said: The good news is that it is an addressable problem, which can be tackled in very cost-effective ways.
Cutting methane leakage can often be done at a low cost, because the gas that is prevented from escaping can be sold.Useless purchases come in many forms.

Executive Summary. Why do companies routinely succumb to the lure of rebranding?
The answer, say A.G. Lafley and Roger L. Martin, the authors of “Customer Loyalty Is Overrated,” is rooted in.
