Course Description
With the Canadian Government and most of its provinces moving toward improved methane gas emissions, regulatory requirements are now getting more stringent in emissions management. Increased requirements for planning, reporting, and reducing methane emissions are now a regular part of business in the energy industry. These increasing requirements target federal and provincial governments and industries, both in public and private sectors.

As a response, CSA has newly released a new code for “Reduction of Fugitive and Vented Emissions for Upstream Petroleum and Natural Gas Industry Systems CSA Z620.1”.
The AER has also updated its Directive 60 “Upstream Petroleum Industry Flaring, Incinerating, and Venting” to include new approaches for monitoring and lowering methane emissions.

This short course has been developed to inform participants of methane reduction basics, calculations, and new and changing regulations.

The course includes:

The principle of methane environmental impact


Calculating the impact of methane released by your facility

AER Directive 060 new requirements

CSA Z620.1 Reduction of fugitive and vented emissions for upstream petroleum and natural gas industry systems

The course includes:

The principle of methane environmental impact

  • Participants in this section of the course will be trained to recognize the various greenhouse gases and the impact of each gas, especially methane on the atmosphere.
  • The significance of methane reduction will be elaborated in this section.

Calculating the impact of methane released by your facility
  • In this section, participants would learn how to calculate methane emissions.

AER Directive 060 new requirements
  • In this section, participants will become familiar with the new requirements of recent editions of Directive 060 and how to implement them.

CSA Z620.1 Reduction of fugitive and vented emissions for upstream petroleum and natural gas industry systems
  • A short introduction to this new CSA code is included in this course.
