In recent years, due to its lower carbon emission, natural gas has become the major energy transition source to replace coal and oil. As such, the success of gas as a power source can contribute to a significant reduction in global warming if methane emissions can be minimized.
Every player in the gas value chain is confronted with methane emissions. These emissions can either be unintended or intended through venting, flaring or gas driven devices, or any other sources and can occur anywhere in the gas production, storage and transportation chain.
As methane is a short-lived climate pollutant with a Global Warming Potential of 84 times that of CO2 over a 20-year timespan, the oil & gas industry has the ambition to reduce these emissions as soon as possible.
Other challenges for the natural gas industry include tackling ageing infrastructure, fire and explosion hazards and the risk of leaking flammable or cryogenic products.
How we can help
Our Methane Accounting Program, together with our SFEMP emission management software, site surveys and advisory services, help companies in the gas industry to retrieve a complete, transparent and reliable picture of their methane emissions, both intended and unintended, from well to market. With this data, we develop bespoke plans for continuous and sustainable improvement in reduction of emissions.
Success is tracked by measuring emission sources after repairs or conducted engineering interventions have been performed, leading up to demonstrated fugitive emission reductions of up to 70 percent. Backed by our 28 years of experience and over 8.000 successful emission reduction projects, we help you to realize your methane emission reductions.
