API Updates Greenhouse Gas Emissions Guide

September 14, 2009 at 9:48 pm Leave a comment

The American Petroleum Institute has published a new edition of its guide for estimating greenhouse gas emissions. The “Compendium of Greenhouse Gas Emissions Methodologies for the Oil and Natural Gas Industry” provides standardized methods for estimating carbon dioxide and other GHG emissions from all common sources throughout the oil and natural gas value chain.

            Accurate estimation of greenhouse gas emissions is indispensable to addressing climate change responsibly. “Unless there is a consistent reliable way to measure GHG emissions, it is hard to assess progress,” said API’s Karin Ritter, who led the industry team that updated the compendium.

            API’s tools for estimating emissions include:

  • The updated 2009 compendium of emissions estimation methodologies;
  • SANGEA software, developed and used by Chevron, for emissions estimation and inventorying; and
  • Guidelines created by the international petroleum organization IPIECA to assist in the accounting and reporting of emissions.

All three tools are available for free on API’s website:
