Chart by Visualizer

The chart shows US natural gas emission intensity calculated as total emissions from natural gas systems divided by historical and future dry gas productions.

Incorrys also estimated that in 2019 major natural gas producers with liquids production less than 10% had emission intensity ranging from 2 to 6.5 MtCO2eq per Bcf/d.

Emission intensity is expected to decline due to various measures primarily focused on methane (CH4) emissions reduction.
