Energy Efficiency Alberta is making it easier for small and medium oil and gas companies to reduce methane emissions.
Henri Tessier of Calscan Solutions gives Minister Phillips, Steve MacDonald, and Jackson Hegland a tour of his business’ workshop.
The new Methane Emissions Reduction Program will help oil and gas facilities identify, reduce, improve or eliminate methane waste through energy-efficient equipment upgrades, boosting competitiveness, productivity and environmental performance.
“A key component of Alberta’s Climate Leadership Plan includes reducing methane emissions by 45 per cent by 2025. Methane emissions are not only harmful to our environment, they can shorten equipment life and increase operating costs for industry. This program will help pinpoint problem areas and solutions, saving businesses money, creating jobs and bringing Alberta closer to reaching our methane reduction targets.”
