A new report from the Texas Independent Producers and Royalty Owners Association (TIPRO), a member of the Texas Methane & Flaring Coalition, underscores the progress being made in the Permian Basin to reduce flaring and methane emissions. The analysis, Flaring Progress in the Permian: Leading the World, was completed by Texans for Natural Gas (TNG) and explains that methane emissions intensity in the Permian Basin has declined over 70 percent the past eight years as oil production more than tripled over the same period. The analysis is a follow up to TNG’s 2018 analysis on methane and flaring intensity in the Permian Basin. The analysis utilizes data from the World Bank to show how flaring intensity in the Permian Basin is far lower than other major producing countries around the world. This analysis showcases the commitment of efforts like the Texas Methane and Flaring Coalition to identify and promote operational and environmental recommended practices to minimize flaring and methane emissions, such as ending routine flaring by 2030, and the Coalition appreciates its members for highlighting this important data.
