methane / D60 Compliance Optimization

Reducing your cost and risk

What is Methane's impact to you?

  • Alberta’s Climate Leadership Plan sets out a target to reduce methane emissions from oil and gas operations by 45% by 2025
  • The Alberta Energy Regulator is expected to mandate new oil and gas methane standards through a revised AER Directive 060. The directive will come into force in 2019 and mandate measurement and reporting of methane emissions, as well as leak detection and repair requirements.
  • The Directive will also mandate new emissions design standards for new Alberta facilities and specify operating practices and retrofit requirements for existing facility equipment that emits methane: pneumatics, compressors, and an overall site-level emissions limit. 
  • Early capital investment in methane emissions reduction equipment may qualify for emission offset credits which can lower future compliance costs
