VENT GAS CAPTURE

11:10 Learn About Developments In Gas Capture Technology To Help Operators Achieve Near Zero Emission And Reduce Their Carbon Footprint

The majority of VOC and NOx emissions typically are due to handling of vapor generated after phase separation. This vapor is commonly flared which contributes to CO2 and greenhouse gas emissions. In this deep-dive case study, we investigate the proven technology being used in several major producing basins to allow operators to sell produced vapor and significantly reduce flaring.

  • Understand how your facilities can be retrofitted with new technology that can help minimize the risk of non-compliance emission related penalties
  • Fully understand the cost considerations of adopting this technology, including initial CAPEX required and LOE as well as the potential for actually increasing cash flow
  • A comparison with other vent gas capture options is presented along with actual case study results
  • How can you gain control of tank pressures to reduce the risk of non-compliance?

EMISSION REPORTING

11:50 Learn More About Cost Effective Tracking And Reporting Methodologies Compatible With The EPA To Avoid Non-Compliance Fines And Penalties

Operators have been using emission tracking and reduction technologies for a while now, but there are a lot of question around the EPA emission reporting process, that remain unanswered. This session is designed for Regulatory Affairs, Compliance Officers that wish to gain clarity on the most effective and streamlined reporting tools available for operators

  • Understand how operators can use a measurement survey method through a bottom up approach to identify, quantify, record and combine all emissions into a single measurement campaign report
  • Learn more about an alternative reporting method: Emission inventory reporting that can help operators report and present a comprehensive overview of emission sources across multiple facilities in a region
  • Hear about updates to the revised Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (GHGRP) and steps taken by the EPA to streamline the process for reporters
  • Gain clarity on the various regulations in between difference regulatory agencies such as the Texas Railroad Commission (RRC) and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in New Mexico

PANEL: NEW LEAK DETECTION TECHNOLOGIES

1:30 Assess The Latest Leak Detection Technologies Available On The Market To Combay And Monitor Fugitive Leaks On Site

Traditionally, identifying leaks has been restricted to using manual handheld sensors that can be slow, expensive and time consuming. This panel session is designed to showcase new innovative technologies available in market, that promise to make leak detection cost effective and full proof

  • Discuss how handheld radar sensors can help detect fugitive leaks at the earliest to minimize fugitive emissions at the source
  • Understand how deployment microturbines and mini-CNG's can help capture emissions and use them to power surveillance equipment on-site, instead of venting or flaring methane gas
  • Learn more about how methane reducing catalysts that can be implemented on-site to reduce unburned emissions by oxidising hydrocarbons
