Promote currently available technologies to achieve practical and cost-effective methane mitigation solutions as well as basic Carbon accounting which satisfies the needs of investors or bankers.

Course Content

This one-day session will include a view of best practices for Carbon Management with a focus on fugitive methane reduction. It will include global and local examples of Carbon Regulations, give tools for de-risking regulatory compliances and field-proven methane reduction technology cases. It will be introduced within the framework of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and regional Environmental and Social Metrics as proposed by governments or regulators.

This is especially relevant to oil and gas production and the consequent action/strategies producers need to have in place for regulators, banks, investors and governments. In particular, the session will include two technical discussions regarding the most time-critical components of methane management compliance – fugitive emission leak detection and compressor seal vent gas measurement.

The session will also look at the typical data management requirements. It will also cover strategic planning, emissions quantification methodologies, facility design, data management, pneumatics, compression, leak detection and flaring.
