California Resources Corporation (CRC) seeks to increase energy efficiency and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) and other compounds, even as we supply more energy to Californians. We actively contribute to the State’s efforts to mitigate or adapt to climate change while maintaining reliable, cost-effective energy supplies for California’s citizens.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued GHG emissions estimating protocols that are used by CRC facilities to report GHG emissions. The EPA requires reporting for certain direct GHG emissions source categories and certain GHG supplier categories, as well as carbon dioxide injection for enhanced oil recovery. CRC provides such data for our oil and gas operations, natural gas-fired power plants and natural gas and natural gas liquids facilities. These data are available on the EPA website. The California Air Resources Board has separate regulations for reporting GHG emissions and our California operations have provided reports to the State for covered activites. The California definitions and methodologies are somewhat different from those specified by the EPA for its GHG reporting program. The data for CRC facilities in California, which are verified by third-party firms certified by the State, are available through the Air Resources Board website.
