|Summary text/ abstract||To improve understanding of leakage rates for policy-makers, investors, and other decision-makers, we review 20 years of technical literature on NG emissions in the United States and Canada. We find (i) measurements at all scales show that official inventories consistently underestimate actual CH4 emissions, with the NG and oil sectors as important contributors; (ii) many independent experiments suggest that a small number of "superemitters" could be responsible for a large fraction of leakage; (iii) recent regional atmospheric studies with very high emissions rates are unlikely to be representative of typical NG system leakage rates; and (iv) assessments using 100-year impact indicators show system-wide leakage is unlikely to be large enough to negate climate benefi ts of coal-to-NG substitution.|
