The BC OGRIS has provided a grant to the Institute of Geoenergy Engineering at Heriot Watt University to study the oxidation of fugitive methane in natural soils of British Columbia. The research project will focus on the potential for greenhouse gas mitigation at integrity compromised oil and gas wells.

Learnings will be used to appraise if this natural process could be used as an alternative approach to managing integrity compromised wells and if so, what that might look like, and under which circumstances it may be appropriate.

More information on this project is available on the Active Projects page of this website (under Engineering and Safety Research--Wells).
