US CH4 Emissions from Oil and Gas Production: Have Recent Large Increases Been Detected?
Oil and gas production in the USA has reached historically high levels over the past decade. Scientists disagree, however, on the extent of associated increases in methane emissions. The authors of this paper challenge the over-use of satellite sensing to infer emission trends and suggest that they are best evaluated by in situ and aircraft measurement. According to their study there have been no large increases in North American methane emissions.
