John Soderstrom and Doug Allen, Zeeco Inc., USA, examine the end-to-end emissions reduction solutions available to the oil and gas industry.
End-to-end emissions include both fugitive and intended emissions cannot be eliminated through equipment maintenance, they may become intended emissions through burning them in a flare or eliminating them through the use of flare gas or vapour recovery. Reducing an organization's end-to-end emissions footprint helps meet permitting requirements and provides a cleaner, safer global environment. For today's global operating companies, end-to-end emissions solutions should use more efficient flares. A comprehensive look at emissions reduction should also include a review of a variety of technologies for reduction of intended emissions.
