Other Things to Note:

1. The Alberta Methane Emissions Program is a three-year $17.6 million initiative to support methane emissions reductions, funded by the Government of Alberta through the Technology Innovation and Emissions Reduction (TIER) fund and administered by the Delivery Agent Partnership (DAP) established by Carbon Management Canada (CMC) and the Sundre Petroleum Operators Group (SPOG).
2. Delivery Agent Partnership:
a) Carbon Management Canada (CMC) is an independent, scienced-based non-profit organization focused on the development and implementation of industrial emission solutions to enhance the competitiveness of industries. One of CMC’s core mandates is to support the Albertan and Canadian economy and job growth by supporting technology development and commercialization locally to meet global demand for emissions management. CMC completes methane monitoring and CCUS solution consultation, and operates a one-of-a-kind, world-class field research facility.
b) Sundre Petroleum Operators’ Group (SPOG) is a grassroots non-profit society that responds to the interests and concerns of the residents, landowners, and industry operators in the Sundre/Olds region. SPOG demonstrates synergistic solutions to problems and opportunities created by the interface of the oil and gas industry within communities that includes all sectors: industry, community, and government. SPOG continues to provide avenues to demonstrate Alberta’s commitment and leadership in methane management.
