As one of the many Net-Zero levers, power generation and consumption is forecast to almost double in the next 30 years. However, with more than 60% of primary energy “lost” in the conversion to electricity, we have to ask; What is the source of those losses?
Electrification is a term we hear banded about currently, alongside carbon-zero and zero-emissions and hydrogen. What does it mean in practice for mature oil fields.
An old timer’s perspective of the latest trend in the chase for Zero Carbon. 2020 will be remembered by many for the COVID-19 pandemic; but also, for the emergence of some very positive moves towards carbon reduction across our society.
Many gas-to-power markets and technical solutions exist, though globally their size, complexity and adoption are varied. Niche solutions can be developed that enable upstream operators, equipment manufacturers and end users to all benefit from established technology.
Global produced gas and total Greenhouse Gases have been increasing, and also targets to reduce flaring are well short of plans. Yet value creating solutions exist at every scale.
If regulatory and cultural barriers to the way we design, operate and manage our heating systems can be overcome, the potential towards Net Zero Carbon goals is considerable
Remote Operations require a blend of appropriate monitoring and automation technology matched with best-in-class work processes to deliver maximum efficiency and value
Hydrogen has the potential to play a major role in our planets de-carbonisation, but there are practical, technological and economical challenges to realising that potential
