The findings of the Sixth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for 2022 have highlighted the imperative need for action on methane emission. Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas, with a Global Warming Potential more than 80 times greater than that of carbon dioxide (CO2) during the 20 years after it is released into the atmosphere. 

The oil and gas sector is the second largest source of methane emissions globally and presents the biggest low-cost mitigation potential for methane emissions with technically feasible solutions.
