♦ Category: Energy

IPCC: 1B2 - Fugitive Emissions from Fuels - Oil and Natural Gas
Sector: Industrial : Oil & Gas Extraction : Process Losses : Fugitives

♦ Activity: Fugitive emissions -

♦ Greenhouse gas: Methane ( CH4 )

► Year 1990 —

● Greenhouse gas emission estimate —

Amount: 19,888 tonnes of CH4 Emitted (417,651 tonnes CO2 Eq.)
Basis: Compilation
Calculation: Speciation of Total Organic Gases (TOG) data into CH4
Reference: ARB (2007). California Emission Inventory Development and Reporting System Database (CEIDARS). CA Air Resources Board Staff queried CEIDARS for Total Organic Gases (TOG) emissions, and then speciated the results into CH4. California Air Resources Board. Summer 2007. /ei/general.htm
