解决甲烷排放量

Reducing methane emissions is a priority for our industry to address the risks of climate change. Thanks to innovation and industry actions, U.S. methane emissions rates in the largest producing regions have declined 70 percent in the past decade, even as America produces more affordable, reliable and cleaner natural gas.

Building on the progress industry has made in driving down emissions, API supports cost-effective policies anddirect regulation这实现了在供应链中的新的和现有来源的甲烷排放减少。此外,天然气和石油工业仍然致力于通过行业举措致力于开发和部署新技术和实践,如环境伙伴关系, to better understand, detect, and mitigate emissions.

Industry Efforts to Reduce Methane Emissions

根据EPA,从1990年到2018年,与天然气和石油产量相关的甲烷排放减少了23%。但是,我们知道我们有更多的工作要做。

在2017年推出,环境伙伴关系代表美国陆上天然气和石油生产总额的70%以上,公司的大小专注于推动创新,共享整个行业的最佳实践,减少每个主要美国盆地的甲烷排放。从泄漏检测和修复程序和创新解决方案,以加强与领先研究机构合作的监测减少燃烧的新举措– The Environmental Partnership continues to lead the way toward a cleaner future.
