Helping energy producers minimise methane emissions

What it is: MiQ is a leading certification standard for methane emissions. As an accredited MiQ auditor, Intertek independently certifies natural gas extraction and production facilities (onshore and offshore), using data-led grading to identify gas with higher or lower emissions. To provide a grade for a producer or facility, we evaluate methane intensity, company practices and monitoring technology.

Customer benefit: While reducing greenhouse gas emissions focuses on CO2, there is increasing awareness that methane is 80 times more potent in its first 20 years, so reducing it can have a much greater immediate effect on managing climate change. By providing grades that enable producers to differentiate their natural gas, MiQ certification promotes incentives for cutting methane emissions.
