This self-paced 2-hour eLearning training course on Methane Guiding Principles will teach delegates the why and how to manage methane emissions across the natural gas value chain. Explore technologies and best practices, and learn how to evaluate methane detection, measurement, and reduction options.

Providing access to energy, while addressing global climate change, is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. Natural gas plays a major role in meeting global energy demand today. Since natural gas consists mainly of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, its part in the transition to a low carbon future will be influenced by the extent to which the oil and gas supply chain reduce its methane emissions.

The Energy Institute (EI) has partnered with Methane Guiding Principles (MGP) and Dr. Adam Hawkes / experts from Imperial College London’s Sustainable Gas Institute to offer a Masterclass that is intended to help participants understand methane emissions and learn how best to mitigate them through the nine intended learning outcomes from the course.

Learning Objectives:

This course is intended to help you understand methane emissions and learn how best to mitigate them through our nine intended learning outcomes from the course:  

The Methane Guiding Principles* (MGP) Global Outreach Programme aims to develop leadership in methane emissions reduction in oil and gas supply chains worldwide. It sets out the business case for reducing methane emissions, communicates understanding on sources, magnitude, and identification/quantification methods for methane emissions, and presents the MGP Reducing Methane Emissions Best Practices alongside real-world case studies.

Course Format:

This training course is delivered on the Energy Institute's Moodle Learning Management System, consisting of 2 hours of self-paced eLearning via bite-sized pre-recorded video content, quizzes to consolidate learning as well as reading lists and relevant resources.

Who should attend:

The Masterclass is aimed at managers of ‘front-line’ staff, making asset-level decisions with respect to measuring, reporting and mitigating emissions, managers of those who need to consider reducing methane emissions as a part of their job (e.g. in design, operations, maintenance, HSE, etc), and those with responsibility for putting methane management plans in place. Attendee job descriptions differ by company and supply chain stage, and can include HSE managers, operational managers, asset design managers, and those responsible for asset maintenance. It is not suitable for field operators or technicians.
