The Environmental Impact of Fugitive Methane Emissions in the Natural Gas Supply Chain and How to Control it

While natural gas proponents have been heard to tout their 'green' credentials by becoming the cleanest of burning fossil fuel, you haven't heard the whole story. In addition to habitat disruption and potential impacts on local water and air quality created by the natural gas Bonanza, one of the most significant concerns is the contribution of "fugitive methane emissions" on climate change. Methane emissions along the natural gas supply chain from natural gas production, transportation and consumption are not well understood and may be far worse than expected.  Natural gas contains at least 80% methane, a potent greenhouse gas with a global warming potential 72 times greater than CO2 over a 20-year period and over 20 times greater than CO2 over a 100-year period.

This energy webinar by expert speaker Dr. Barry Stevens will uncover the magnitude and impact of methane fugitive emissions - current and future, discuss technologies and methodologies for reliably detecting and measuring natural gas emissions, the economic value of capturing emissions, and the government's role in controlling methane and other GHG emission factors associated with fossil fuel production, distribution and transportation, and end-use

Session Highlights:

  • Focus on methane discharges - fugitive, vented and flared - from the oil and natural gas supply chain
  • Developing a realistic picture of its impact, sources, remediation in the context of technology and practices, the regulatory landscape and economic incentives
  • Complexity of the natural gas system
  • Climate Change Forcing Effects of Methane discharges
  • U.S. GHG inventory and emissions from the oil and natural gas supply chain
  • EPA Regulations
  • Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program
  • Sources and Estimates of Methane leakage from the natural gas system
  • Feasibility and economic benefits of currently available emission mitigation opportunities
  • The EPA STAR Program
  • The current state of affairs
