Methane Emissions in Stationary Engine Exhaust and Best Management Practices for Mitigation

Executive Summary

Methane slip from stationary natural gas engines is not well understood. Stationary natural gas engines are widely used in oil and gas production and electricity generation. New regulations by Environment and Climate Change Canada are being considered to limit methane slip. Field tests are required to define both the quantity of methane slip and what dictates the volume that is produced. A discussion of the current theory will be provided along with analysis of the emissions from 110 field tests to validate the behavior of these engines and what they emit. A discussion of the technology available will be developed along with best management practices.
