Our attitude to these exploitation methods is conditioned by the relative carbon emissions they engender. Operations that help control (and then combust) the leakage of methane to atmosphere may, for example, be prioritised because unabated emissions may be more harmful as greenhouse gases (methane is c.30 times more powerful a greenhouse gas than CO2). Again a more generic criteria based policy may be most appropriate given the relative rarity of such applications.
