The AAAS EPI Center hosted a virtual half-day symposium to explore the landscape of carbon credit markets with respect to reductions in greenhouse gas emissions in the oil and gas sector. Presentations and discussions included the relevant science, methodologies, and procedures related to quantifying, monitoring, and verifying reductions in greenhouse gas emissions from the oil and gas sector. Additional content focused on the opportunities and risks related to carbon credits for properly decommissioning oil and gas wells.

In September of 2021 the AAAS EPI Center formed a working group of experts to address orphaned and improperly abandoned oil and gas wells. 

In this webinar, noted experts and practitioners discussed the scientific evidence that can inform federal, state, regional, and local efforts to mitigate methane emissions. 

Marine scientist Amber Starks on how she adapts to her audience to find effective ways to talk about the transformations that active oil platforms undergo to become thriving marine ecosystems.
