Methane emissions have become one of the main threats to the global climate, and both scientists and authorities around the world are calling for aggressive measures to contain them.

“Through the agreement, the EPA will support this institution with diagnostics and economic analysis to support decision making in its onshore oil and natural gas operations,” Pemex said in a statement.

“With this cooperation, Petróleos Mexicanos will be able to receive recommendations from the EPA on options to mitigate these sources, including burner capture and burner efficiency opportunities, equipment replacement and operational changes to eliminate routine venting, and regular leak detection and repair,” he said.

The parastatal added that, through the technical collaboration of the EPA, it foresees develop and launch a greenhouse gas mitigation plan in the first half of 2023. The plan will start with the institution’s onshore oil and gas operations.

He assured that the agreement with the US agency seeks to promote “Mexico’s objectives to reduce methane gas emissions, in line with the provisions of the Global Methane Commitment and the Global Methane Energy Commitment”.

Pemex’s onshore oil and gas operations have come under intense scrutiny this year after satellites recorded record volumes of natural gas burning, including two fields destined to produce gas.

methane leaks have also been a problem.
