Air

We strive to reduce the emissions intensity and increase the energy efficiency of our operations.

Natural gas is the cleanest fossil fuel, producing about 25 percent less carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions than oil and up to 65 percent less CO2 emissions than coal. Even though natural gas is the cleanest fossil fuel, we continue to direct our attention to further reducing air pollutants from our production methods. We are not just focused on current improvements to air quality. We are constantly looking to the future by advocating for increased natural gas usage in transportation and power generation.

2014 Encana air emissions

Total direct and indirect emissions (CO2e) (1)(2)(3)

Total direct and indirect emissions (CO2e)
  • (1) An increase in our 2014 indirect Canadian CO2e emissions is a result of increased purchased electrical consumption in 2014.
  • (2) A decrease in our USA 2014 direct CO2e emissions is a result of significant divestitures in our US operations in 2014. Our 2013 direct CO2e value was revised to reflect more accurate information resulting from ongoing refinements to our air emissions calculation methodologies that include refinements to our equipment inventory based on more accurate counts and reconciliations, improved analyses of methodologies and improved data QAQC processes.
  • (3) The decrease in our USA 2014 indirect CO2e emissions is a result of decreased purchased electrical consumption in 2014.
