MiQ and its auditors assess the methane emissions at facility (asset or platform) level. Our granular approach means that different facilities operated by the same company can end up with a different grading.
For each unit (1 MMBtu) of gas produced at a certified facility, a producer receives an MiQ certificate in their account on the MiQ Digital Registry every month.
The MiQ Digital Registry is a secure digital ledger where all MiQ Certificates are held from issuance to retirement, providing clarity on all MiQ Certificates by tracking certified gas from production through to retirement by the end-user. This ecosystem creates transparency around methane emissions, prevents double-counting, and enables end-users to claim the environmental credentials for their GHG reporting. The Registry has an ultra-low fee structure.
