Within the CCAC Methane Studies we have a project to estimate methane emissions from oil & gas fields using TROPOMI (and other) satellite data. In this project we initially focussed on regions in Algeria and Venezuela. For Venezuela, we focus on the oil-producing region around Lake Maracaibo. In Algeria we estimate the emissions in the two largest Oil & Gas fields, Hassi R’Mel and Hassi Messaoud. Here, we also use high spatial resolution observations from Sentinel-2 in one framework with the TROPOMI data to characterize the contribution from methane super-emitters to total emissions of the oil & gas fields.
