SPE Gaia / OGCI / IPIECA / IOGP Climate Series eSessions – Methane | #3 | Policy Focus and Industry Action
Includes a Live Event on 05/12/2021 at 10:00 AM (EDT)
Tackling methane emissions across the full natural gas value chain requires international cooperation among industries, governments, civil society and NGOs. This webinar introduces the policy context and the voluntary efforts from the O&G industry to reduce methane emissions. The session will review two of the leading initiatives for methane emission reporting (OGMP2.0) and country level target setting (GMA). In a third phase, OGCI will present its near zero intensity target by 2025, progress to date, and broader support to engage with the rest of the Natural Gas value chain to reduce methane emissions. The session concludes with a Q&A with the audience, moderated by Darcy Spady (TBC).
Duration: 1.5 Hours
The Oil and Gas Climate Initiative is a CEO-led consortium that aims to accelerate the industry response to climate change. OGCI member companies explicitly support the Paris Agreement and its goals. As leaders in the industry, accounting for over 30% of global operated oil and gas production, we aim to leverage our collective strength and expand the pace and scope of our transitions to a low-carbon future, so helping to achieve net zero emissions as early as possible. Our members collectively invest around $7B each year in low carbon solutions. OGCI Climate Investments, our $1B+ fund, invests in solutions to decarbonize sectors like oil and gas, industrials and commercial transport.
IPIECA is the global oil and gas industry association for advancing environmental and social performance. IPIECA convenes a significant portion of the oil and gas industry across the value chain, bringing together the expertise of companies and associations to develop, share and promote good practice and knowledge. IPIECA is the industry’s principal channel of engagement with the United Nations. Its unique position enables its members to support the energy transition and contribute to sustainable development.
The International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (IOGP) is the voice of the global upstream industry. We serve industry regulators as a global partner and act as a uniquely upstream forum in which our Members identify and share knowledge and good practices to achieve improvements in health, safety, the environment, security and social responsibility.
Registration is free to all participants through the generous sponsorship of OGCI.
