A Comparative Assessment of Alberta’s Oil and Gas Methane Emissions Under the ECCC rules and AER’S Draft Directive 060

December 10, 2018 Category: Policy Work Area: Super Pollutants

This analysis is based on emissions estimates and models provided directly by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC).
