Oil and Gas Emissions Benchmarking Tool

Inform strategic decisions regarding oil & gas emissions risk management at scope 1, 2 and 3 via competitive benchmarking, portfolio analysis and economic impact assessment.

Want to learn more about how this tool can help you reach your emissions targets?


An independent assessment of carbon emissions in the upstream and downstream

The Emissions Benchmarking Tool provides transparency at the asset and corporate level.

Understand differences in emissions profiles and key drivers, where there are opportunities for mitigation, and how acquisition or divestment of assets would change corporate emissions profiles.

Prepare for a lower carbon future using a consistent, transparent and standardised view

Emissions profiles

Emissions profiles

Asset-by-asset forecasts for Upstream to 2064 and Downstream to 2040.


Interrogate data by region, country, company, resource theme, field type, development status or asset name.

Carbon pricing and policy risk

Carbon pricing and policy risk

Assess the likelihood and stringency of carbon regulation in 160+ countries.


Understand which assets are more exposed to potential carbon costs, or where you may need to reduce emissions to comply with regulations.

Financial liability

Financial liability

Ensure investment decisions are robust under multiple different scenarios.


Design your own carbon price assumptions, or our risk index and carbon price forecasts, to understand how they would impact asset and corporate valuations.

Comparing companies’ and assets’ emissions profiles, risks and liabilities on a like-for-like basis

We provide lifecycle analysis of GHG emissions from cradle to grave, looking at Scope 1, 2 and 3 under the lens of an upstream producer

Upstream Scope 1 and 2

Including: Drilling, production complexity, processing complexity, flaring, venting, liquefaction losses, methane losses, ecosystem disruption.


Downstream Scope 1 and 2

Including: Fuel, FCC, electricity, hydrogen production and flaring.

Oil & Gas Scope 3

Including: Transport and shipping, refining, downstream transport, distribution and end-use.



We can help you answer key strategic emissions questions, including:

  • How do corporate and asset emissions compare across upstream, downstream and metals & mining operations?
  • Which types of assets are most/least carbon intensive?
  • What are the largest sources of emissions?
  • To what extent are the oil & gas and metals sectors exposed to carbon regulation worldwide?
  • How could carbon-related costs impact asset and corporate valuations?
  • How can companies reduce emissions and financial exposure?
  • What is the global emissions footprint of the extractive industries?
