Comparing Life Cycle Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Natural Gas and Coal

Report Date

March 2011

Release Date

April 2011

Document summary

Recent questions about the environmental risks posed by the production of natural gas have focussed on two issues that must be responsibly addressed: the adequacy of current technology and regulation to ensure safe disposal of wastewater produced during natural gas extraction; and, the comparison of GHGs emitted during the lifecycles of natural gas and coal. The focus in this research is on the life cycle GHG comparison of natural gas and coal.
