Portrait of Jan Gorski

Jan Gorski is the director of the Pembina Institute's oil and gas program, based out of Calgary. He is working to advance climate and energy policy across Canada in collaboration with diverse stakeholders in the oil and gas sector including industry, governments, and civil society. He has experience in policy development, emissions and energy modelling, and represents the Institute externally on numerous committees and other fora.

Prior to working at the Pembina Institute, Jan was a project engineer for Clearstone Engineering where he led domestic and international emissions measurement and reduction studies in the oil and gas sector. Jan holds a master’s degree in mechanical engineering and a bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering, both from Carleton University.

Jan spends much of his spare time either on a bicycle or exploring the Rocky Mountains, sometimes both at the same time.

Design Principles for B.C.'s Output-Based Pricing System Submission to British Columbia Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy

Publication Sept. 19, 2023- By Jan Gorski, Evan Pivnick, Tom Green
B.C.'s Output-Based Pricing System is essential for meeting the province's climate targets. The Pembina Institute, Clean Energy Canada, and the David Suzuki Foundation enerally support the proposed system, and recommend improvements in alignment with climate targets, data transparency, recognition of early action, accommodation of industrial decarbonization pathways, carbon leakage exemptions, offsets, opt-ins, carbon removal, revenues, and support for demand-side policies.

Squaring the Circle Reconciling LNG expansion with B.C.’s climate goals

Publication May 11, 2023- By Jan Gorski, Jason Lam
Report finds that if all planned and proposed LNG projects in B.C. go ahead without the oil and gas cap, emissions from oil and gas production could be more than three times B.C.’s 2030 sector target. But the widespread electrification of LNG projects that is needed to keep emissions within the cap would put significant pressure on the province’s clean electricity grid.

Reducing methane emissions from B.C.’s oil and gas sector Coalition comments and recommendations

Publication March 20, 2023- By Jan Gorski, Tom Green, Ari Pottens, Jonathan Banks
To meet B.C.’s 2030 oil and gas sector target, achieving deep reductions from low-cost methane mitigation is needed. Forthcoming regulations for the oil and gas sector in B.C. must rapidly accelerate current efforts to reduce emissions and mitigate near-term climate warming. The Pembina Institute has submitted comments and recommendations on the development of new policy to meet and exceed B.C.’s commitment to reduce methane emissions.
