In recent years, natural gas has become the major energy transition source to replace coal and oil due to its lower carbon emission. The success of gas as power source contributes to reduced global warming.

The challenges

Methane as main component of natural gas is emitted, unintended or fugitive, intended through venting, flaring or gas driven devices, or any other sources, along the whole value chain; from Production E&P, Gas Processing, Transportation, Storage and Distribution to the market. Because methane is a short-lived climate pollutant with a GWP of 84 over 20 years, or 28 over 100 years times higher than CO2, the oil & gas industry has the objective to reduce this emission quickly.

Other challenges for the natural gas industry include tackling ageing infrastructurerisk of fire and the risk of leaking flammable products or leaking cryogenic products.

How we can help

With more than 8.000 successful emission reduction projects worldwide and 28 years of experience in the oil & gas industry, we help the natural gas industry with current challenges such as methane emission reduction, risk minimization and safety insurance. Our advisory services and site surveys enable you to reduce emissions continuously. More recently, we developed our new Methane Accounting Program to determine how much methane is emitted per asset across the entire gas value chain to minimize the effects on global warming.
