Launched the Country Methane Abatement Tool (CoMAT)
In 2019, CATF built a new tool to help estimate a country’s oil and gas emissions and how much they can reduce them—the Country Methane Abatement Tool (or CoMAT). CoMAT aims to facilitate engagement with climate and energy officials and other key stakeholders in countries with an interest in reducing oil and gas methane emissions. It lets users develop initial and refined estimates of their nation’s emissions and reduction potential using the best information the users have available. CoMAT highlights the most important factors to understand when considering oil and gas methane regulations, and it can provide a useful means to initiate and organize discussions about methane emission reduction policies.
CATF has used the Country Methane Abatement Tool to work with governments around the world to reduce methane emissions. Learn more about CoMAT.
