📢 On November 23rd, the new OGMP2.0 framework was launched. This methane emission reporting framework is the new gold standard that will improve the accuracy of reporting focusing on the whole Oil&Gas value chain including midstream and downstream.
The OGMP partnership is an initiative of the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) led by the United Nation Environment Program (UNEP), the European Commission and the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF).
How many compagnies are involved?
❓ 62 companies from all continents representing 30% of the world's Oil&Gas production have already joined the partnership.
💡 GERG, with its industry members, recently developed a Methane Emissions Estimation Methodology project (MEEM) for DSOs, that has assessed all international best practice and has used this to develop a consistent and robust approach to emissions estimation which can be used as an industry standard.
💡 The Marcogaz assessment paper which is based on MEEM expanded using Marcogaz’ 2005 methodology for TSOs, LNG terminals and UGS, is currently the basis of a new European Standards Agency (CEN) working group to turn the approach into a CEN Technical Report. We expect this to be used as a standardized methodology in the OGMP 2.0 scheme as a foundation for a framework for reporting in the downstream gas value chain.
