Emissions benchmarking

Emissions benchmarking

Benchmarking industry performance continues to play a significant role in driving industry improvements, and the OGA has, from 2020, introduced benchmarking of performance to track progress towards net zero.

Net zero metrics, are being used to establish performance with regard to emissions reductions, from the level of an individual asset level to the UKCS as a whole, similar to existing indicators Production Efficiency  and Unit Operating Costs. The net zero metrics focus on flaring and venting activity, overall emissions, and emissions intensity.  In September 2020 we published our first Flaring and Venting benchmarking report which can be viewed here.
