Study Warns Of Rise In Greenhouse Gas Emissions From Oil And Gas By 2025

“Oil, natural gas and petrochemical companies could release about 30 percent more greenhouse gas pollution by 2025 than they did in 2018, according to a new report.

Expected growth from these countries could release about 227 million tons of additional greenhouse gas pollution by the end of 2025, with a projected total of 990.5 million tons of emissions, according to a report from the Environmental Integrity Project.

In 2018, the companies reported emitting 764 million tons, the study said.

It pointed in particular to possible increases from 157 projects that had not been operating by the end of 2018.”
