ECONOMIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS OF METHANE EMISSIONS REDUCTION IN THE NATURAL GAS SUPPLY CHAIN

Economic and Environmental Impacts of Methane Emissions Reduction in the Natural Gas Supply Chain

Study Released February 15, 2019

CERI Study 177

This study will quantify the economic and environmental impacts of methane emissions reduction throughout the full supply chain of natural gas. The gas supply chain is broadly divided into upstream, midstream and downstream segments where sources of methane emissions are identified, and mitigation technologies are assessed on cost and emission mitigation basis. The analysis includes three abatement scenarios: maximum emission reduction, uniform reduction and optimal reduction. The study will also include a discussion of hydrogen additions to the natural gas stream and methane release and capture from municipal solid waste facilities and other similar location
