May 31, 2017 - Canada’s oil and gas industry has a massive problem with under-reported methane leaks and fugitive emissions from oil and gas facilities in Alberta and British Columbia.

That’s the conclusion of two new studies that document, for the first time, just how significant methane pollution has become in the country’s oil and gas producing regions.
