This week’s Highwood Bulletin features the European Green Deal, Canada’s zero-emission car mandate, Scientific Aviation joins ChampionX, global banks launch a new voluntary carbon offset trading platform, Chesapeake to pursue RSG certification, a Q&A on differentiated gas, scope 1-3 greenhouse gas emissions courses, and a methane conference you shouldn’t miss.
This week’s Highwood Bulletin features methane policy changes in the United States, oil and gas divestment, coal mining emissions detected from space, differentiated gas coverage, new scientific research on methane emissions in the Permian Basin, a study that measures ethane emissions to infer the accuracy of EPA’s GHG inventory, courses for quantifying emissions, webinars, and a methane conference you won’t want to miss.
This week’s Highwood Bulletin features emissions management news, content, and opportunities from around the world, including new net-zero commitments, satellite measurements of extreme emitters, a new report on careers in methane mitigation, a number of new research articles describing methane measurement technologies and their findings, insights on EPA’s new methane rules, courses, webinars, and conferences you won’t want to miss.
This week features a special science edition of the Highwood Bulletin! In recent weeks there has been a great deal of new research in the emissions management space. We are going to catch you up on studies including evaluation of new methane measurement technologies, temporal variability of methane emissions from O&G production sites, methane leak repair failures in distribution systems, and two new studies measuring “ultra-emitters” from space – many of which are from Turkmenistan.
This week features a series of landmark events in the global energy sector that signal a strong shift towards low carbon production. Companies like Exxon Mobil, Shell, and Chevron were all in the news. The bulletin also features an IEA roadmap to achieving net zero by 2050, a new climate-related executive order by President Biden, and your last reminder to sign up for our free upcoming conference on June 8th!
This week features a new report from the U.N. on the importance of cutting methane emissions, a new sustainable finance council in Canada to increase ESG disclosure, O&G investors call on EPA for tough methane rules, and a free interactive conference on responsibly sourced oil and gas.
A growing number of voluntary emissions reduction initiatives exist for companies that want to demonstrate leadership to investors, end users, and the public. But the space is noisy; how initiatives compare, and the benefits of participation remain unclear. To shed light on these matters, Highwood has published this report.
Last week, Highwood President Thomas Fox gave a keynote presentation on “Leveraging New Technologies to Realize Intelligent Methane Strategies” at the Methane Strategies Forum held by the Energy Drone and Robotics Coalition and EnergyNEXT. If you missed the event, you can check out Thomas’ presentation below! https://vimeo.com/544391508
This week features important regulatory developments in the U.S., an exciting new Alternative LDAR announcement, new developments in responsibly sourced natural gas, new research using methane measurements from space, funding opportunities, and a chance to catch last week’s recorded Methane Strategies Forum.
This week features a methane forum you don’t want to miss, the last chance to register for our Scope 1 emissions course, a tsunami of new GHG reduction targets around the world, Exxon’s massive carbon capture and storage proposal, new research, and talk of mandatory emissions disclosure.
This week features updates on global greenhouse gas concentrations, methane policy developments in the U.S., a plan to clean up abandoned/orphaned wells, a new non-profit media outlet focused on the energy transition, the first-ever alternative LDAR AMEL, and exciting new research and funding opportunities.
Happy Easter holiday! We took it easy on the bulletin this week, but still wanted to share a few important developments in the emissions management space. This week’s issue of the Highwood Bulletin features a report on executive pay and ESG performance, methane in The Economist, new research on aerial gas-mapping LiDAR, a webinar by The Energy Forum, and new opportunities to join the Highwood Team!
This week’s issue of the Highwood Bulletin features new regulations, big shifts towards carbon pricing, research on methane policies, opportunities to learn about hydrogen, new emissions management resources, methane emissions from national oil companies, new estimates of North American methane emissions by satellite, and much more!
This week’s issue of the Highwood Bulletin features greenhouse gas emissions management webinars, podcasts, workshops, conferences, educational courses, and news – all in one place! Read on to learn about international collaborations to achieve net zero, CETA opportunities for cleantech, Tidewater’s $100MM carbon credit project, methane from proposed coal mines, and more.
This week’s issue of the Highwood Bulletin features methane emissions from Russia, proposed O&G methane pricing in the U.S., a carbon capture and storage success story, Alberta’s plans for industrial emissions reductions, removing regulatory barriers for geological sequestration, and more!
