Gas Bubble 2020

Global Energy Monitor calculated a range of life cycle emissions based on a study by the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), within the U.S. Department of Energy. GEM then adjusted the values in two ways:

Modified the methane leakage rates to reflect a wide body of literature on methane leakage rates from gas production areas, and to show impacts of a range of possible values.
Modified the power plant efficiencies to compare new power plants (whereas the NETL report compared existing coal-fired power plants to existing gas-fired power plants).
