Engaging Global Gas Players on Methane Emissions
The CSIS Energy Security and Climate Change Program is undertaking a multi-phase research initiative to analyze how the global gas system might evolve in a way that lowers methane emissions. The oil and gas industry—one of the largest anthropogenic sources of methane—offers the fastest and most cost-effective opportunity to cut emissions, and many oil and gas producers have committed to reducing their methane emissions.
In this research initiative, CSIS will outline the structure of the global gas market, the drivers for individual companies, and the broader ecosystem that influences their climate and sustainability priorities. The research will also analyze regional patterns in the current and projected supply and demand for natural gas with a reduced methane emissions footprint, as well as how new methane emissions data from satellites and other sources might influence the market.
This collaborative project is made possible by support from Environmental Defense Fund.
