Sustainability, particularly CO2 impression of operations, has turn into a key subject for Oil & Gas corporations
- According to the International Energy Agency, Production and Transformation represents about 15% of your complete oil and fuel carbon footprint.
- The Oil and Gas Climate Initiative (OGCI) has outlined a goal to cut back the collective common carbon depth of member corporations’ aggregated upstream oil and fuel operations. The aim is to cut back to 20 kg – 21 kg CO2e/boe by 2025, from a collective baseline of 23 kg CO2e/boe in 2017. OGCI members embrace BP, Chevron, CNPC, ENI, Equinor, ExxonMobil, Occidental, Petrobras, Repsol, Aramco, Shell and Total.
- Major gamers comparable to BP have introduced the formidable aim of turning into a web zero firm by 2050.
Schneider Electric can already assist the discount of CO2 emissions with a big selection of options and companies. This portfolio of presents is enhanced by AVEVA optimisation software program.
- Variable Speed Drives can guarantee vital discount in electrical energy consumption, and might be simply deployed even in brownfield, for instance, on a cooling tower fan.
- Process Control, Real Time Optimisation, apps comparable to Profit Advisor, integration of Power and Process may help optimize a course of and produce extra with much less feedstock and energy.
- AVEVA optimisation software program may help fine-tune the design of flare methods, warmth exchangers or flue fuel restoration.
- Energy Sustainability Services and Resource Advisor may help optimize and observe carbon emissions.
- We may help optimize the design of the whole energy system, making certain much less loss and right-sizing of energy era wants.
An unprecedented collaboration between McDermott, io consulting and Schneider Electric has recognized achievable actions that may cut back upstream greenhouse fuel emissions by greater than 70% with minimal price enhance over the lifetime of the sector. This contains operational carbon emissions, embedded carbon within the services and the emissions from the EPCI course of.
Here are simply a few of the findings from the joint research on Net Zero Offshore Facilities to be revealed earlier than the top of the yr:
- Decarbonizing energy
- Use of digital expertise to remotely function the ability
- Designing out fugitive emission sources and extremely potent greenhouse fuel utilization in manufacturing tools
- Designing out the flare methods
- The research additionally concludes that there’s a vital potential for offshore weight discount
The research additionally demonstrates a methodology that may be utilized to all of your services throughout the building course of and the lifetime of area operations to cut back greenhouse fuel emissions.

Why such a partnership?… Because “the earlier the better”
Our Schneider Electric portfolio helps optimize a given structure… We typically affect some parts of the structure, making ideas that profit each the end-user pockets and the planet. But the best scenario is to assist outline the structure, on the earliest stage doable… These phases are referred to as Concept Select and Definition (pre-FEED), that are the place McDermott and io consulting (as a mission architect) particularly have interaction with their customers… the identical IOC and NOC (International and National Oil Companies) customers as Schneider Electric! This is the place the end-user makes strategic selections comparable to whether or not the platform will likely be manned or absolutely remote-operated, will likely be a flare or not, will the platform be powered by a fuel turbine or from a connection to a mainland or offshore renewable energy supply…
All these decisions have main impacts on the energy consumption and CO2 impression of the ability. One can optimize a CO2 intensive facility, however the perfect strategy is to make certain the ability is NOT CO2 intensive…Schneider Electric has a variety of capabilities to contribute to the partnership… from our energy & sustainability consulting capabilities to our energy and course of system management capabilities, that may be remotely deployed…These capabilities, mixed with the opposite self-discipline experience from io consulting and McDermott, assist the builders of such services of their decisions, detailing what is possible with present applied sciences, at what price and with what impression on CO2 emissions.
