This work was supported by the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) Oil and Gas Methane Science Studies (MSS) hosted by the United Nations Environment Programme. Funding was provided by the Environmental Defense Fund, the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative, the European Commission, and CCAC (reference no. DTIE19-020). The data used in this publication were collected as part of the Methane Observations and Yearly Assessments (MOYA) project funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) (The Global Methane Budget, University of Manchester, reference no. NE/N015835/1; Royal Hol-loway, University of London, reference no. NE/N016211/1). Air-borne data were obtained using the BAe-146 atmospheric research aircraft and the Mooney Acclaim aircraft. The former was flown by Airtask Ltd and managed by FAAM Airborne Laboratory, jointly operated by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and the University of Leeds. The latter was flown and managed by Scientific Aviation. We would like to give special thanks to the Airtask pilots and engineers and all staff at the FAAM Airborne Laboratory, as well as the pilots from Scientific Aviation for their hard work in helping plan and execute successful MOYA project flights. We would also like to thank staff at Kiruna Airport, Norway, for hosting the FAAM aircraft during the campaign. Funding Information: The FAAM research aircraft conducted three regional flight surveys of two regions on the Norwegian continental shelf in July and August 2019, as part of the “Methane Observations and Yearly Assessments” (MOYA) project, funded jointly by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and the United Nations Environment Programme Climate and Clean Air Coalition (UNEP CCAC). Figure 1 illustrates the two regions surveyed by the flights, along with O&G facilities in the area.
