Get full visibility into environmental performance of the global and regional oil and gas industry. Rystad Energy has developed a global and North American focused field-by-field emissions database, including emissions originating from upstream oil and gas activities (such as extraction and flaring).

We Provide

We provide complete coverage of oil and gas industry emissions through our global field-by-field CO2 emissions database, while also diving into the nuances of a broader range of sustainability metrics for North America, which are based on and founded from our flagship UCube database.

We Deliver

We deliver access to data and commentaries that synthesize the market implications of trends and key events, along with our expert views, all backed by Rystad Energy's unparalleled data universe.

We Collaborate

We collaborate closely with our customers and other market players to ensure that we deliver high quality intelligence and advisory services in an efficient manner, and that we capture the key nuances of the market as they happen.


Access emission data from Rystad Energy’s proprietary cubes through web-based dashboards and data feeds:

Global Workflows

  • Review, benchmark and analyze upstream CO2 emissions from all oil and gas producing countries and the top 500 companies (operated and equity basis).
  • Find and select relevant peer companies
  • Company and country overviews based on asset-by-asset emission data for 85,000+ assets
  • Upstream CO2 emissions split by extraction and flaring, including data quality indicators, future trends and maps
  • Company and country emissions split by supply segment, field life cycle, field type and production detail, continuously updated with new data

Regional Workflows

  • Analyze upstream onshore and offshore CO2 and CH4 emissions on an asset level 
  • Benchmark and contrast historical and forecasted emission intensity for E&P companies or individual acreage posittions in North America
  • Understand emission trends over time and latest best practices to better inform environmental strategies
  • Benchmark North American operators based on key metrics for each ESG component - understand main drivers behind performances in each dimension
  • Evaluate tangibility of routine flaring elimination strategies for the US and Canada
  • Visualize regular research notes and reports from our oil & gas sustainability aspects on all relevant topics


  • Assess carbon footprint related to oil and gas activity, both upstream, refineries/processing and product end use emissions – from individual assets to global overview
  • Assess carbon footprint of offshore supply vessels, drilling rigs and other emission intensive energy services
  • Carbon footprint benchmarking of oil and gas portfolios
  • Upstream flaring trends and intensities by country, operator and asset
  • Operational improvements and business development opportunities to improve carbon footprint
  • Granular carbon risk assessment as part of overall energy transition risk, combining future emission profile and carbon pricing scenarios with energy price and volume risk
  • Benchmark emissions from operated midstream assets, as well as third party (scope 3) emissions from refining/processing of operated production
  • Remaining carbon budget for coal, oil and natural gas, and how this is distributed among companies and countries based on cost competitiveness of their reserves and resources
  • Carbon intensity of future oil and gas production mix, assessing end use emissions as the future mix of oil and gas evolves from producing fields, fields under development and current discoveries
  • Assess value at risk for oil and gas assets based on internal and external energy scenarios, using consistent asset-by-asset valuation models including production, economics and emissions
  • Support companies, investors and banks in complying with TCFD recommendations for oil and gas activity
