Methane Emissions Reduction

The Government of Canada (GOC) has committed to reducing methane emissions from the oil and gas sector by 40 to 45 percent below 2012 levels, by 2025.

As a part of the Alberta Energy Regulators (AER) regulatory requirements for Methane Reduction requirements as detailed in Directive 060 effective January 2020, part of which included the compressors vent seal testing be completed on equipment with a rated brake power of 75 kw or more, and that operate more than 450 hours per calendar year.

The AER requires testing of any compressor seal that emits vent gas at least every 9000 hours that the equipment is pressurized. Similarly the Government of Saskatchewan Energy and Resource Ministry has developed a Methane Action Plan, which includes the quantification, measurement and  reporting of vent rates for reciprocating and centrifugal compressors seal vents.

The GOC has finalized equivalency agreements with the provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan. These agreements will allow the provincial methane regulations to replace the federal regulations for up to five years. The equivalency agreements allow provincial regulator’s to design methane reduction regulations that fit their respective jurisdictions while meeting the equivalent federal methane reduction outcomes.
