More than 120 mln metric tons emitted by sector in 2023
Improved satellite technologies could help cut emissions
Major US operations may be emitting 3% of supply as methane
LONDON, March 13 (Reuters) – Methane emissions from the energy sector remained near a record high in 2023 despite commitments from the sector to plug leaking infrastructure in a bid to combat climate change, a report by the International Energy Agency said on Wednesday.
Methane emissions from human activities such as oil and natural gas production, agriculture, and landfills are short-lived in the atmosphere but many times more potent than carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas. They have driven about a third of the rise in global temperatures since the industrial revolution.
