Methane is a far more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, but it stays in the atmosphere for a shorter time. So reducing methane emissions can result in an important near-term reduction in the pace of global warming.
What Climate Investments is doing to reduce methane emissions
We invest in cost-effective technologies to detect, measure, and mitigate methane emissions and scalable projects that deliver substantive emissions reductions. We currently have nine investments in our Catalyst I portfolio.

How is the oil and gas industry tackling methane?
Currently, almost a third of anthropogenic methane comes from the oil and gas industry. But that is changing: in the past few years, a handful of start-ups, backed by OGCI Climate Investments, have helped the sector cut emissions, rapidly. This series will explore the methane opportunity: what it is, why it matters, and how the OGCI is investing for change.
bp: Mapping and capping methane emissions with Kairos Aerospace
When bp announced its ambition to be a net zero company by 2050 or sooner, and to help the world get to net zero, it outlined an aim to install methane measurement at all of its existing major oil and gas processing sites by 2023

SeekOps: Taking offshore methane measurements to new levels
Understanding and addressing methane emissions is an important step toward net zero, but traditional methodologies of reporting emissions at source level are under increasing scrutiny.
TotalEnergies and Qnergy remove 98% of vented methane emissions
Across many of the world’s natural gas production fields, gas pneumatic devices used for process control and chemical injection vent methane directly into the air.
GHGSat – Global methane detection at facility level
Methane is a potent, but odourless and colourless greenhouse gas, a combination that makes detecting leaks both very important and very hard.
SeekOps – Drone-based monitoring of methane emissions
Scalable methane detection techniques for on and offshore environments, that have shown results over five times more efficient than existing methods
