Emissions from venting and flaring, as well as fugitive emissions, decreased significantly since 2005, according to Canada’s 2020 greenhouse gas inventory.

From 1990 to 2018, data show that the oil and natural gas industry saw declines of 49 percent and 43 percent for venting and flaring emissions, respectively. Meanwhile, fugitive emissions – or emissions from leaks or other unintended releases – fell by an incredible 59 percent. During this same time period, the report explains that Canada’s oil production increased 170 percent.

The ability to reduce these emissions, while simultaneously increasing production is a testament to the industry’s commitment to improve its environmental footprint.

EID has more information on flaring emissions reductions across provinces on EIDClimate.org.
