With the recent presidential election results in the United States — for the most part — now determined, there is “renewed concern” over the future of Keystone XL, says Natural Resources Minister Seamus O’Regan. However, he assures the local business community that Canada’s federal government continues to promote and support the project.

Companies and collaborations that have taken up the opportunity to develop their own fugitive emissions management programs (FEMP) as alternatives to prescribed methods to phasedown methane emissions are showing significant cost savings to meet the required reductions.
December 1, 2020, 6 AM MST
With the introduction of new federal and provincial methane regulations, rapid and cost efficient monitoring of fugitive emissions will be more critical than ever before for the upstream oil and gas industry.
