Methane Abatement Program in Kazakhstan

Carbon Limits has been active in Kazakhstan since 2010, working with multiple stakeholders, who have grown to recognize the importance of methane emissions in the oil and gas sector. In August 2013, Carbon Limits presented
the idea of an extensive Methane Abatement Programme to the Kazakhstan’s Ministry of Environment and Water Resources. The idea was welcomed and a detailed action plan was officially approved by the Ministry in January
2014. Practical work is currently ongoing and includes emission measurement campaign, emission inventory, pilot project identification and dissemination activities. The current project is supported by the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Water Resources in Kazakhstan and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Norway. The Global Methane Initiative (GMI) is also a collaborator.
