An Industry You’ve Never Heard Of Is Trying To Cut Over $1.8 Billion In Wasted … – ThinkProgress

Can a little-known, fledgling industry make the oil and gas industry more efficient and a little less dangerous to the climate by tackling methane leakage? A not-insignificant amount is emitted at the wellhead, or while being stored and distributed — seeping past inadequate valves, leaking out of pipelines. The natural gas system is the largest industrial source of methane emissions in the U.S., and those emissions are expected to grow. That’s bad news for a livable climate. So what can the industry do right now to stop it? The new report, prepared for the Environmental Defense Fund by Datu Research, takes a deep look at the “new and rapidly emerging methane mitigation industry.”
