                    [post_content] => On May 27th, the Council approved the EU Methane regulation, which is expected to come into force in early July 2024.

This Regulation introduces new rules for measurement-based Monitoring, Reporting, and Verification (MRV), Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR), and limits on routine venting and flaring across the oil, gas, and coal supply chains.

The EU is the first jurisdiction to set requirements for fossil fuel imports, which will be implemented gradually from 2025 to 2030. This process will begin with information provision, move to demonstrating MRV equivalence, followed by reporting, and finally ensuring that imports stay below the maximum methane intensity thresholds.

This OIES Insight:
  • analyses the changes, the affected parties, and the timelines.
  • examines the missing elements, e.g. methodology for the calculation of methane intensity of imports, and emission allocation methods between oil and gas products, that are yet to be included in the Regulation via delegated and implementing acts.
  • evaluates whether the Regulation meets the expectations raised in the 2020 EU Methane Strategy concerning emissions from fossil fuel imports.

Earlier this year, the sector’s main regulator, International Maritime Organisation (IMO) adopted a revised GHG strategy setting an enhanced common ambition to reach net-zero GHG emissions from international shipping close to 2050. As of 2024, maritime transport emissions will be incorporated under the European Union’s cap-and-trade program – the Emissions Trading System (EU ETS). As a result, shipping companies using European ports will have to monitor and report their emissions and purchase and surrender EU allowances (EUAs) for each tonne of reported carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. From 1 January 2026, this obligation will be extended to two short-lived GHGs – methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O). This energy insight provides an overview of the key issues and tensions related to the decarbonisation policies for shipping. More specifically, it analyses new requirements for shipping companies under the EU ETS and discusses implications for shipping sector decarbonisation, methane mitigation in the EU and LNG.
