The issue of fugitive emissions management has and continues to be important to the upstream oil and gas industry. The genesis of this fugitive emissions Best Management Practice (BMP) can be traced back to earlier undertakings of the Air Research Planning Committee (ARPC) of the Petroleum Technology Alliance of Canada (PTAC). The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP), the Explorers and Producers Association of Canada (EPAC), Environment Canada (EC) and the Alberta Energy and Utilities Board (EUB) have coordinated efforts to develop a BMP which also satisfies recommendations No. 43 and 44 of the Clean Air Strategic Alliance (CASA) Flaring and Venting Project Team (FVPT).
