This publication presents updated average emission factors for estimating emissions from fugitive equipment leaks at upstream oil and natural gas (UOG) facilities. The previous factors (CAPP, 2005) were developed based on measurement results collected from the mid 1990s to early 2000s. The updated factors are reflective of current conditions at UOG facilities that have implemented DI&M programs in accordance with the CAPP Best Management Practice of Fugitive Emissions at Upstream Oil and Gas Facilities and applicable regulatory requirements.
