The paper discusses a project to quantify methane (CH4) emissions from the U.S. natural gas industry. The study will measure or calculate all gas industry CH4 emissions--from production at the wellhead, through the system, to the customer's meter. Emissions downstream of the consumer's meter, such as the end-user's burner emissions, are not included. When these data are combined with data from other studies, a definite comparison of the relative environmental impact of using natural gas versus other fuels will be possible. The study will also provide data that can be used by the industry to identify cost-effective mitigation techniques to reduce losses.
