Flaring becomes an election issue
Flaring is taking centre stage in the 2020 Texas Railroad Commissioner election campaign and the issue is gaining more attention than ever according to World Oil Capterio perspective: From the data, we see flaring in the Permian continues to...
Risk-free, low cost and low emission barrels: why flaring is the oil and gas industry’s $27 billion opportunity between the trees
Oil and companies invest an estimated $550 billion each year to explore and develop new oil and gas resources to replace the c. 60 billion oil-equivalent barrels (i.e. oil + gas) consumed each year.
By tackling flaring, oil-producing countries can meet a substantial portion of their Paris Climate Agreement commitments
Whilst latest UN climate discussions (COP25) closed with limited agreement, we think that flare monetisation (and addressing venting and leaking) is one of the decarbonisation levers that everyone can agree on.
Why Europe’s gas-supplying countries have some of the largest opportunities to create value by monetising flared gas
Europe’s nearest gas-supplying countries have not only some of the highest absolute volumes, but also, some of the highest “flaring intensity” rates. Several countries therefore have potential market risk (due to growing environmental concerns), but also a...
How Saudi Aramco can ensure continued value post-IPO: Keep driving down the carbon-intensity of production
Saudi Aramco recently joined the zero routine flaring initiative. By tackling its top flares it can immediately accelerate from its rivals on carbon intensity and deliver for shareholders post-IPO. A thought-piece by Capterio.
From talk on decarbonising gas to actually delivering solutions. Our reflections from Oil and Money.
This week’s major oil and gas conference highlighted the key role that decarbonised natural gas is likely to play in the energy transition. After all the talk, we outline where and how to concentrate that intent on...
Flaring’s billion-tonne methane secret: An under-estimated opportunity for decarbonization and revenue generation in oil & gas
Flare capture presents a significant opportunity for oil & gas players to drive additional revenues and decarbonize operations. However, we may well be significantly under-estimating the decarbonization potential due to invisible emissions from “methane slip”.
Impact of the Saudi oil attacks: increased gas flaring in the US?
A thought-piece by Capterio | Published on the Capterio website 17th September at 0947. Last Saturday’s attacks on the two energy facilities in Saudi Arabia (including the world’s largest oil processing facility at Abqaiq) have reduced Saudi’s output of...
World Bank releases its 2018 assessment of global flared gas
Capterio is working closely to interpret these data and identify opportunities.
