Global health benefits of mitigating ozone pollution with methane emission controls

Methane (CH4) contributes to the growing global background concentration of tropospheric ozone (O3), an air pollutant associated with premature mortality. Methane and ozone are also important greenhouse gases. Reducing methane emissions therefore decreases surface ozone everywhere while slowing climate warming, but although methane mitigation has been considered to address climate change, it has not for air quality.

For example, just 12 hours of downtime for an oil production platform could cost six to eight million dollars in lost production opportunity alone.
