RMI – Tackling Methane in the Oil and Gas Sector with the Oil Climate Index plus Gas (OCI+) Tool

Methane is a powerful climate pollutant that heats our planet over 80 times more than carbon dioxide. The oil and gas sector is responsible for an estimated one-third of global methane emissions, therefore representing a significant near-term opportunity to reduce emissions and slow global temperature rise.  

RMI’s cutting-edge interactive tool — the OCI+ — reveals the size, scope, and nature of the methane problem. Notably, new OCI+ analysis reveals that methane drives one-half of oil and gas industry greenhouse gas emissions. Recently updated to model 70 percent of global oil and gas assets, the OCI+ interactive tool offers the climate intelligence needed by oil and gas operators, financial firms, policymakers, and civil society to identify opportunities to manage methane.

Join RMI’s oil and gas sector emissions experts on Wednesday, May 3rd, at 11 a.m. MT for a deep dive on recent OCI+ findings, how to use the OCI+ web tool, and how the tool can inform oil and gas decision-making.
