Workshop on best practice to reduce gas flaring and methane emissions in the oil and gas sector

Carbon Limits has performed in cooperation with DNV GL a workshop on best available techniques to reduce emissions in the Oil and Gas sector.

Carbon Limits’ team covered two main themes: Emissions from gas flaring and methane fugitive.

The focus of the workshop has been on sharing knowledge and developing competence among participants, who have been actively involved in the training by mean of different interactive ways, such as the reverse learning, the teamwork and the presentation of specific case studies.

Participants have been invited to share their knowledge on some of touched topics and teamwork method has been applied in order to put in practice the arguments treated during the training and to create network between trainees.

Real case studies have been presented to illustrate the key concepts. Carbon Limits has matched the information presented during the workshop to specific needs of the countries, highlighting particular success stories from other countries in the region.

Here below a short summary of arguments:

BAT for flaring. Risk management approaches, description of the most effective and advanced stage techniques, environmental aspects of BAT implementation, technologies related to increasing gas utilization.

BAT for Venting and Fugitive Emissions. A review of emission sources along the oil and gas value chain, typical magnitudes, identification & quantification as well as abatement technologies and costs have been presented. References have been made to relevant BAT guidelines for venting and fugitive emissions in the oil and gas sector.
