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.
