DOE Funds GSI Project to Measure Methane Emissions from Marginal Oil and Gas Wells

The U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Fossil Energy has awarded a research study to GSI, titled Quantification of Methane Emissions from Marginal (Small Producing) Oil and Gas Wells, to collect and evaluate unbiased and representative data for quantifying methane emissions from marginal oil and gas wells—e.g., oil wells that produce less than 15 bpd or gas wells that produce less than 90 MCFD.  [Read More]. Data collected in this study will help address critical knowledge gaps and support best management practices for both marginal and no-marginal oil and gas wells.

As a crucial first step, GSI is conducting a CONFIDENTIAL and BLINDED data survey to characterize important differences in production site characteristics as they relate to potential fugitive methane emissions sources.
