- That would require a 5% annual reduction going forward, which would be much faster than the 1.1% annual decline between 2007 and 2019.

- As Liam Denning at Bloomberg Opinion points out, that would require 80% reduction in emissions from the power sector, cutting methane emissions in half, plus finding another 1.2 billion tonnes of CO2 to cut, likely from transportation.

- The aggressive target will be difficult to reach, but the trajectory is clear, which carries enormous implications for oil and gas.

3. U.S. natural gas production to jump

- U.S. natural gas production is expected to jump, following several years of contraction.

- Natural gas output is set to hit a new record in 2022, at 93.3 billion cubic feet per day, according to Rystad Energy.
