SLB Chosen by Eni for Global Methane Emissions Reporting Project

by Victor Adetimilehin

Schlumberger (SLB) has announced that its End-to-End Emissions Solutions business (SEES) will collaborate with integrated energy company Eni to provide comprehensive fugitive methane emissions measurement and reporting plans for Eni’s global operating facilities. This project aligns with the reporting standards of the Oil & Gas Methane Partnership 2.0 (OGMP 2.0), a flagship methane reporting and mitigation program of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).

The initiative’s goal is to offer Eni an accurate account of its fugitive methane emissions, supporting transparent reporting and informing Eni’s strategic efforts to reduce them. Methane is a potent greenhouse gas (GHG) with a climate change impact up to 84 times greater than carbon dioxide over a 20-year timescale, and it represents about half of the oil and gas sector’s operational emissions.

Kahina Abdeli-Galinier, Emissions Business Director at SLB, emphasized the importance of measurement accuracy, speed, and scale in driving down methane emissions in the oil and gas industry. Collaborating with Eni, SLB aims to leverage its expertise in OGMP 2.0 requirements and its global presence to deliver accurate and reliable methane data measurement and reporting within a rapid six-month delivery window.

SEES will operate across multiple sites in Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America, conducting source-level measurements and simulations of Eni’s emissions in accordance with OGMP 2.0 reporting requirements. SLB will compile and analyze the data and assist Eni in reporting its source-level emissions to the OGMP.

SEES was launched in March 2022 and offers a comprehensive range of services and cutting-edge technologies designed to provide operators with a robust and scalable solution for measuring, monitoring, reporting, and ultimately eliminating methane and routine flare emissions. Since its launch, SEES has undertaken customer projects in various regions, including Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and the United States, offering consulting, optimized surveillance planning, measurements, and interpretation through a secure digital platform.

As the world seeks ways to reduce methane emissions and combat climate change, collaborations like this one between Eni and SLB play a vital role in enhancing transparency and accountability in emissions reporting, ultimately contributing to a more sustainable future.
