Mar 30, 2022 – 

The Clean Air Task Force issued a paper in December 2020 mapping out a pathway to reduce sector emissions from new and existing oil and natural gas sites. 

With these 3 measures, we can reduce methane emissions from oil and gas: 

Key Measure 1: Frequent Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR).
