First webinar on 12 March, 14:30 – 16:30 Brussels time

Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR)

The EU Methane Regulation for the energy sector was proposed in December 2021 as part of the proposals to deliver the European Green Deal. This is the EU's first-ever legislation to curb methane emissions in the energy sector. The legislative proposal followed the EU Methane Strategy adopted in 2020 and is now in the process of being implemented at EU Member States level.

360° approach
Together with international experts from the European Commission, regulators, the industry and service providers, the webinar series will dive into the details of solutions to ensure an efficient implementation of the EU Methane Regulation by the operators and stakeholders along the value chain.
