Methane Tracker

Interactive database of country and regional estimates for methane emissions and abatement options

This data tool presents the IEA’s country-by-country estimates of energy-related methane emissions. It compares these with estimates from other publicly available sources and with estimates from other human activities. For the oil and gas sector, we present detailed estimates for the abatement potential – and costs or savings – from different technology and policy options. Building on the IEA’s Policies Database, we provide a snapshot of the policy tools in place to tackle methane emissions within each country and our assessment of what greater policy action could achieve.
