Mobile Measurement of Methane Emissions from Natural Gas Developments in Northeastern British Columbia, Canada
This groundbreaking research estimates that fugitive methane emissions from B.C. oil and natural gas operations — the majority of which use hydraulic fracturing (fracking) — are at least 2.5 times higher than reported by the B.C. government and may be much higher.
