Methane is a more potent greenhouse gas (GHG) than carbon dioxide (CO2). Understanding methane's role in GHG emissions (via accurate emissions profiling) and climate change is critical for regulators, stakeholders, and global investors seeking to understand the challenges and opportunities posed by the energy transition

Absolutely-- and not only understanding methane, but figuring out how to track, monitor, and keep honest methane, as it's been revealed to be even more troubling for leakage and flaring than we had even thought. 

Do you see any international movement/agreement coming soon in how methane should be viewed and treated?

I am not sure about the international movement/agreement just yet, but I know that there are a number of innovative companies here in the UK doing some interesting work around using big data/data analytics to provide emissions profiling all through the supply chain, so IOC's, infrastructure companies, utility companies etc. are able to tell a more accurate picture of their emission profiles right up to it gets to the consumer point.
