Draft Methodology Development

The proposed new methodology applies to project activities that plug and abandon wells that leak methane into the atmosphere. The project activity entails measuring methane leak rates, abatement of the leak by plugging and abandonment, and ongoing confirmation that the leak abatement is successful.


The methodology development is being led by Green Generation (opens on external site) and PipeWire (opens on external site). The draft methodology is currently at “Step 3: Draft Methodology Development” of the VCS Methodology Development and Review Process, 4.3 (PDF).

Stakeholders interested in collaborating during methodology development or developing projects that this methodology might enable once published are encouraged to contact Please include the Methodology Development ID# CN0107 in the subject line.
