Innovation gaps in fuel supply
Alongside policy and regulation measures, developing and implementing new technologies will be essential to realise emissions reductions.
For methane, monitoring and measuring emissions on a continuous basis is a key gap for which innovation is required to identify major emission sources and assess the efficacy of emissions reduction actions. The development of new, low-cost leak detection and repair options would also encourage much more widespread adoption.
For flaring, large volumes of gas are often wasted in small-scale operations on an intermittent basis. A core challenge is to provide economically viable solutions to bring the gas to market, especially in offshore operations.
