QatarEnergy to cut emissions to near zero by 2030
State-owned energy company QatarEnergy has joined the Aiming for Zero Methane Emissions Initiative, an industry-led initiative that aims to reach near-zero methane emissions from operated oil and gas assets by 2030, it said on June 27.
QatarEnergy joins the initiative that was launched in March this year by Aramco, BP, Chevron, CNPC, Eni, Equinor, ExxonMobil, Occidental, Petrobras, Repsol, Shell and TotalEnergies.
“By being the first company to join the Aiming for Zero Methane Emissions Initiative outside its twelve existing signatories, we are reaffirming Qatar’s priorities and commitments with regards to the climate change agenda, and its unwavering support to the global effort to reducing emissions, including methane,” QatarENergy CEO Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi said.
The Aiming for Zero Methane Emissions Initiative was launched by the OGCI member CEOs. All energy companies involved in the exploration, extraction or production of oil or natural gas can join as signatories at no financial cost.
