The Baseline and Reduction Opportunity (BRO) Assessment Program will enable Alberta’s small and medium sized conventional oil and gas operators to:
- obtain detailed inventories of their methane emitting devices and equipment
- identify and quantify methane emissions sources on-site
- identify actions needed to comply with the provincial regulatory requirements and cost-effective opportunities to go beyond provincial requirements
- provide data to assess potential projects and to apply for provincial or federal funding programs and/or offset credit systems
The $10-million program, funded through the Technology Innovation and Emissions Reduction Fund, supports provincial efforts to meet Alberta’s 2025 methane reduction target and demonstrate global leadership in low-emissions conventional oil and natural gas production.
Eligible applicants include operators/facilities within Alberta’s conventional oil and gas sector that meet the following criteria:
- Operators must produce fewer than 60,000 barrels oil equivalent per day (boepd), according to data reported in Petrinex for 2019.
- Facilities must be subject to Section 8 requirements set out under Alberta Energy Regulatory (AER) Directive 60.
