Schlumberger End-to-end Emissions Solutions

Comprehensive set of scalable solutions for measuring, monitoring, reporting, and ultimately eliminating methane and flare emissions

A holistic approach to vented and fugitive methane emissions reduction and routine flaring elimination

Many companies in today’s crowded marketplace offer individual technologies to mitigate or reduce  methane and flare emissions—a sensor that measures methane emission sources; an instrument that converts waste gas to LNG; a software platform that inventories greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. While those technologies can be effective, it is unclear how they fit into a holistic effort to ultimately eliminate methane emissions. For example, it is challenging to determine which methane leak detection technique to use, how to respond to any detected emissions, and which delivers greater impact—reducing methane or reducing flaring.

In this era of radical energy transition, the pressure is on all of us to incorporate climate change regulations and initiatives into our business risk assessments. The pressure comes not only from regulators—but also from investors, consumers, employees, and the general public—to do the right thing for the environment.

Navigating the dynamically evolving landscape of emissions management is a challenge. Complex risk management is required as current regulations evolve and new regulations are implemented. Schlumberger can help you keep up with what regulators demand, what nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) report, and what new information is discovered about the nature of emissions.

Measure, monitor, report, and eliminate methane and flaring emissions

Schlumberger End-to-end Emissions Solutions (SEES) is a new business that offers a comprehensive set of services and cutting-edge technologies designed to give operators a robust and scalable solution for measuring, monitoring, reporting, and ultimately eliminating methane and flaring emissions from their operations—quickly and effectively.

Tackling the challenge of reducing methane and flare emissions from the oil and gas industry is the quickest way to have a meaningful impact on reducing your GHG footprint. We want to enable the industry to overcome the challenge differently—better, faster, and more thoroughly—to make a difference globally.

SEES provides the most comprehensive and flexible emissions reduction offering in the marketplace today. We offer a broad range of measurement technologies selected from our consistent evaluation of more than 100 technologies—including field tests of 25 selected technologies—within the last five years.

Collaboration with our customers and partners

The business has also developed extensive knowledge and expertise in international reporting and certification standards related to GHG emissions. Recent customer engagements include building a digital platform for a consortium of operators to support a multisensor methane emissions monitoring program and entering into a consulting contract with an IOC to enable them to comply with the Oil and Gas Methane Partnership (OGMP) 2.0 framework for methane.

We have:

  • a deep engagement with operators, startups, and academics to define the future and to stay informed of emerging technology developments
  • a collaboration with Project Astra, a study in the Permian that uses point sensors to detect, quantify, and locate emission sources
  • a joint development engagement with customers to test methane emissions detection sensors and develop quantification algorithms at their facilities
  • ongoing R&D projects to develop next-generation point sensors and identify optimal placement, create quantification and leak location algorithms, and optimize aerial survey flight paths
  • continuous astute investments in leading technologies—such as satellite and drone measurement providers—to ensure our customers have access to the best technology.

A deep engagement with our partner network helps deliver our comprehensive end-to-end solutions.

Our end-to-end approach

From consultancy and planning to technical and digital solutions, we follow a holistic approach to provide our customers with end-to-end solutions built on three pillars—plan, measure, and act. All three pillars are underpinned by the industry’s first methane emissions digital platform, which is accessible in the DELFI cognitive E&P environment, to provide a comprehensive and differentiated path for operators to achieve their decarbonization objectives.

Plan and Strategize
Develop most efficient plan to monitor and reduce methane emissions
Measure and Learn
Deploy fully vetted, best-in-class measurement technology
Act and Deploy
Deploy abatement technologies to reduce methane emissions to target

The three pillars above are supported by a robust data and digital offering that enables customers to have one single place for integrating, visualizing, reporting, interpreting, and forecasting their emissions data to make the most effective and efficient decisions regarding emissions management, mitigation, and reduction.

  • Plan: We identify the most effective suite of GHG emissions measurement technologies, including drones, airplanes, satellites, handheld devices, sensors shared by multiple operators, and fixed sensors. The ideal measurement plan varies depending on facility size, type, location, climate, and proximity to other facilities.
  • Measure: Once a plan is developed, we implement it by creating a baseline measurement of emissions across the entire asset. We manage the data from a wide diversity of measurement approaches, ensuring each provides the maximum possible insight and is routed where and to whom it is needed most. Our broad understanding of different measurement and calculation approaches enables us to integrate data from multiple sources, including data reconciliation. Our close relationships with international organizations—including OGMP, MiQ, and Project Canary—ensure that our measurements will meet required global standards.
  • Act: Following measurement, high-emitting sources are identified and emissions from these are reduced by repairing leaks, installing low-emitting equipment, and implementing technology for transforming gas to valuable products.
