The Sniffers launches Methane Accounting Project

To reduce carbon emission and respond to an increased energy demand, global energy players are investing strongly in gas production and supply. Every player in the gas value chain, is confronted with methane emissions.

The Sniffers has therefore launched its Methane Accounting Program to help these customers minimising their methane emissions and contribute strongly with the goal to keep global warming under 1.5°C and simultaneously help them to manage their reputation with credible, auditable figures and progress.

The program consists of creating an in-depth understanding of all potential emitting sources, identify and quantify the emission with fit for purpose technologies and a report out of the calculated emission results aggregated/detailed with improvement plans and knowledge transfer.

The Sniffers had the opportunity to rollout its Methane Accounting Program for an important customer in the Middle East. The service was applied for 24 different facilities (gas separation plants, wells, compressor stations, gas processing plants, battery stations, etc ) with in total more than 4 million potential emitting sources. All sources were measured with the appropriate technique and the emission of the emitting sources were quantified with a particular international protocol. After a first repair round, all emitting sources were re-measured.

With this campaign, a total of 1.900 tpy methane emission were saved.

The program has been rolled out already in Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Oman, The Netherlands and discussions are taking place with customers in Canada, Malaysia, Nigeria, Romania and Russia.
