The issue of managing methane emissions has been a critical topic and focal point for the energy industry, policymakers and regulators. A primary component of natural gas, methane is also a more damaging greenhouse gas than CO2. With the boom in natural gas production, attention on properly managing methane leaks from wells, pipelines and the entire natural gas value chain has united focus on reducing its potent emissions while also limiting the waste of the resource being produced.

For the last two years, Mexico has been in the process of developing regulations to similarly manage the issue of methane emissions in the country’s burgeoning oil and gas sector. In late 2018, after years of study and development, Mexico published regulations that will curb methane emissions in the country’s oil and gas sector. The Mexican government received inputs from several environmental organizations as well as industry groups. The final result is a regulatory structure and set of norms that are groundbreaking for Latin America and positions Mexico as a leader on environmental policy and greenhouse gas emissions particularly pertaining to the oil and gas sector.

Join us for a webinar and discussion with Dr. Luis Vera, Executive Director of Mexico’s Agency for Security, Energy and the Environment, ASEA. Dr. Vera will share further insights from the development of the regulations for curbing and properly managing methane emissions in Mexico and early results from their efforts and key factors for other markets and countries to understand as they seek to develop their own regulations.

The webinar will be held Wednesday, July 31 at 10:00am San Diego (12:00 pm Mexico City time; GMT/UTC – 8 hours). Dr. Vera’s formal presentation will be followed by a live Q&A session with the audience.
