NS-68 - Emission Reduction Actions Program (NAMA) in Natural Gas Processing, Transport and Distribution System, through fugitive emission reduction


NAMA Seeking Support for Implementation

  • A Overview
    • A.1Party
      A.2Title of Mitigation Action
      A.3Description of mitigation action

      The central goal of this NAMA is the creation of a framework program that allows project activities consisting of the reduction of methane emission by means of the minimization and/or elimination of fugitive and black carbon emissions in the components of the process, transport and distribution of the national natural gas system.

      E.1.2Comments on full cost of implementation
      The pilot program estimates a cost of 4.8 million USD (based on a former project "Wet by dry seals substitusion" in Nuevo Pemex and Poza Rica Regions). For the total program an estimated amount of 47.8 million USD (35 million Euros) in support would be required.

      The methodology used for determining the CO2 equivalent emissions reduction related to this NAMA reasonably minimizes the calculated uncertainty and generates accurate, coherent and reproducible results, following what is established by the standard NMX-SAA-14064-1-IMNC-2007.

       In order to guarantee that the emissions reduction calculation be performed in the most successful and conservative way, the methodology AM0023 (“Leak detection and repair in gas production, processing, transmission, storage and distribution systems and in refinery facilities”) has been used as reference, which has been approved by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) for the validation of projects under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).

      The development of this methodology includes the additionality assessment, namely, to conclude if a certain Project Activity truly requires an incentive in order to be implemented and in consequence, obtain the emissions reduction calculated by the Project Proponent.


  • H Other indicators
    • H.1Other indicators of implementation
  • I Other relevant information
    • I.1Other relevant information including co-benefits for local sustainable development
      Environmental benefits:
      1. GHG emission reductions
      2. Black carbon emission reductions through the instalation of pilot flame lighter electronic devices at the natural gas burners

      Economic beneftis:
      1. Natural Gas production process improvements and economic savings from the methane emission reductions
      2. Additional investment in Natural Gas infrastructure through monitoring and quantifying fugitive emissions

      Social benefits:
      1. Improve population health from GHG emission reductions
      2. Improved operations and risk management in Natural Gas infrastructure along the national system
