Natural Gas & Climate Change

Knowing how much methane is leaking from the natural gas system is essential to determining the potential climate benefits of natural gas use. That is the main focus of this evaluation of publicly available studies. The study author:
“One of the gravest dangers posed by urban oil-well drilling and production is the potential for explosive methane gas to migrate to the surface from several thousand feet underground. Unless the present-day practices are change, underground migration of methane from oil and gas reservoirs will continue to pose a significant explosion threat”.
