UK Oil and Gas Industry Unveils Plans to Cut Emissions
The UK’s offshore oil and gas industry has committed to reduce operational emissions by 50% over the next decade as part of its drive to become a net zero basin by 2050. The sector is one of the first in the UK to commit to industry wide-targets and outline how they will be achieved.
A report published today (16th June 2020) by industry body OGUK, The Pathway to Net Zero: Production Emissions Targets, details how these targets will be achieved through changes in operations, progressive reductions in flaring and venting and major capital investment programmes.
OPEX’s new emissions reduction service, X-PAS™ Emissions, is featured in the report highlighting how predictive technologies can help to improve the energy efficiency of offshore installations and drive a reduction in CO2 emissions.
