Greenhouse Gas Reduction in Natural Gas Global Environmental Facility

The Grant was established to identify and prioritize investment projects and changes in procedures in the natural gas supply and utilization system which would result in a reduction of the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and would be part of a cost-effective GHG mitigation program for the Russian Federation. The principal objectives of the project were to assess the release of methane to the atmosphere and propose methods for its reduction; and to identify and appraise projects to decrease C02 emissions by increasing the efficiency of gas use.
