The Government of Alberta (Canada) has announced where money will be spend to reduce methane emissions from the oilpatch. Environment Minister Jason Nixon says CAD $25 million will be spent to help companies buy emissions reduction equipment. Another CAD $27 million will be spent helping companies find, repair and measure methane leaks.
The money will come from Alberta’s levy on industrial greenhouse gas emitters, a type of carbon tax. Nixon says the program will help reach the province’s goal of reducing methane emission by 45% below 2014 levels by 2025.
