Canadian Emissions Reduction Innovation Consortium (CanERIC)
CanERIC is a network of researchers and producers from across Canada, working to reduce methane emissions from the Canadian Oil and Gas industry.
PTAC (Petroleum Technology Alliance Canada) is leading this unique organization, with funding from the Alberta, Saskatchewan and Federal Governments.
CanERIC is a pan-Canadian network of researchers and end-users created to develop and deploy technologies to reduce methane emissions. This network is providing the oil and gas industry with a platform to articulate and rank their most pressing methane emission challenges. Technology vendors are responding to these challenges and are able to better understand the potential market for their products. Industry is working with the technology vendors to develop tests for their technologies in lab and field settings and the vendors will be able to refine their designs with the information provided by the tests. Institutional members are involved in CanERIC to provide the expertise to conduct the lab tests and monitor and analyze field tests for the network.
