Schlumberger announced the launch of Schlumberger End-to-end Emissions Solutions (SEES). The business offers a comprehensive set of services and cutting-edge technologies designed to give operators a robust and scalable solution for measuring, monitoring, reporting and, ultimately, eliminating methane and routine flare emissions from their operations. SEES launches at a critical time in the industry—today we witnessed leadership from Oil and Gas Climate Initiative (OGCI) members who announced their aim for zero methane gas emissions in oil and gas operations by 2030. Methane and flare emissions currently account for more than 60% of direct (Scope 1 and 2) greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the industry.
As energy companies seek to operate in a more sustainable manner, they will need to report and reduce their methane emissions and flaring activity more reliably. Currently, when looking for answers and partners to address this challenge, they are faced with a patchwork of disparate offerings—SEES changes that.
SEES delivers a holistic approach to enable operators to develop a successful methane emissions elimination strategy from the outset. The approach builds on three pillars—plan, measure, and act—that are all underpinned by the industry’s first methane emissions digital platform, accessible in the DELFI* cognitive E&P environment, to provide a comprehensive and differentiated path for operators to achieve their decarbonization objectives:
1. Plan: Schlumberger screens a wide array of measurement and abatement solutions to identify the most cost-effective technology mix for any operator’s specific assets.
2. Measure: Schlumberger uniquely provides operators access to the full range of curated, best-in-class third party and in-house solutions, after rigorous evaluation of 97 methane measurement technologies.
3. Act: Though other service providers can inform an operator where emissions are occurring, Schlumberger—through its end-to-end offering—first finds the emissions and then takes remedial action to eliminate them.
In addition, robust data and a digital foundation will enable customers to have a secure, reliable single place for integrating multi-source emissions data with advice, plans and insights.
SEES combines Schlumberger’s extensive measurement and planning experience with the ability to assess and implement emerging technology, foundational data, AI, and digital capabilities, and the means to scale and deploy anywhere in the world. The business has also developed extensive knowledge and expertise in international reporting and certification standards related to GHG emissions. Recent customer engagements include building a digital platform to support a multi-sensor, multi-operator monitoring program, and entering a consulting contract with an IOC to enable them to comply with the Oil and Gas Methane Partnership (OGMP) 2.0 framework for methane.
