A Promising Measure for ASEAN Climate Change Mitigation Efforts: Abatement of Methane Emissions from the Oil and Gas Sector

23 June 2023


  • The methane emissions from ASEAN’s oil and gas sector are projected to increase, posing a significant challenge to climate change mitigation efforts.
  • Due to methane’s high warming potential, reducing methane emissions in the oil and gas sector would have an immediate and significant impact on global warming.
  • Existing technologies can potentially reduce ASEAN’s methane emissions from the oil and gas sector by 75%.
  • Government policies and regulations play a crucial role in accelerating methane emissions reduction efforts, including monitoring, reporting and incentivising methane education technologies.
  • Collaboration between regulatory bodies, global oil and gas companies, and ASEAN-based companies is essential for knowledge-sharing and implementation of best practices in methane management.
