Minimize Well Construction CO2 Footprint

Reduce emissions per foot drilled

Reduce your energy consumption during operations

Oil and gas extraction activities create about 10% of current total E&P-related emissions. These emissions primarily consist of CO2 generated by fuel combustion to power rigs and other related infrastructure.

Although recent offshore electrification projects have shown success on platforms, translating this to mobile rigs presents challenges for units that move on a regular basis and require their own mobile source of power. A clear opportunity to reduce CO2 emissions in this space is to improve operational efficiency. This can be achieved on a component or project basis, resulting in reduced rig time, reduced transportation requirements, and improved fuel efficiency of generating systems that supply power to the rig and other infrastructure.

Emissions associated with drilling projects can also be reduced by using fluid technologies that have less CO2e embedded during their manufacturing process compared with traditional materials.

With a portfolio of Transition Technologies including drilling-efficiency enablers, cements, frac fluids with a low CO2 footprint, and power management systems that aim to maximize rig generator efficiency, we can help you reduce your emissions footprint while maximizing the value of your operations.
