The rapid increment in the amount of greenhouse gases entering the atmosphere is badly impacting life on planet for almost all living organism including human. Nations from all over the world is doing efforts to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases mainly from main made activities in which burning of fossil fuel is the biggest source of today greenhouse gases. The purpose of this research is to recommend a suitable methodology for the estimation of carbon footprint for an oil and gas industry. This research explains how an oil and gas industry can estimate their own carbon footprint in a very easy and simple way. Step by step method is discussed to calculate carbon footprint from all direct emission sources and indirect emission sources like, stationary combustion sources, mobile combustion sources, vented sources and fugitive emission sources in detail. Once the carbon footprint become known to us, a comprehensive plan for its mitigation can be developed and applied which will ultimately lower the overall emission of the industry.
