CeDER: Addressing Impacts of Methane Regulations with Technological Solutions

  • SRC Technical Theatre - Exhibit booth #126
  • May 28, 2019
  • 3:30 pm - 3:50 pm


Government energy regulators are demanding substantial greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions from industry. While CO2 is a major concern, the need to address large methane emissions from the oil and gas sector is intensifying. This presentation will discuss key points in recent provincial and federal regulations, how they may impact oil and gas operations and how operators can identify technological solutions that can be adopted in the field in response.

SRC will share examples from its database of over 350 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction technologies and profile SRC’s Centre for the Demonstration of Emissions Reductions (CeDER). CeDER offers mobile facilities for real-world technology validation and air quality monitoring, established protocols and access to SRC’s state-of-the-art laboratories.

Our scope extends across emissions reduction technologies, including low- to high-volume sources, fugitive emissions and process venting to large plants. In this presentation, we will discuss how the CeDER program combines with SRC’s expertise and experience in the oil and gas sector to provide an essential service.
