We work with our clients to reduce their carbon footprint by commercialising small-scale and stranded gas via gas to liquid plants (GTL). Until now, this exercise has been overly expensive with long capital payback periods and low returns on capital employed.

Zero Routine Flaring by 2030

The market is evolving, with greater emphasis placed on organisations to be environmentally accountable. Initiatives such as ‘Zero Routine Flaring by 2030’ (ZFR), changing regulations, and the potential flare gas penalties of circa $7.8 billion per annum, all evidence a shift in governmental and public opinion that cannot be overlooked. These changes call for a raft of old and new technologies to navigate this landscape of transformation.

Global initatives

The World Bank (ZRF) initiative has stimulated cooperation between governments, oil & gas companies and other stakeholders to restore the environmental damage of 400 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent released into the atmosphere of local communities around the world annually. 

Oil and gas producers face demands to: 

  • Commercialise gas waste into an energy resource to support economic growth
  • Reduce CO₂ emissions and curb carbon emissions
  • Restore the health and environment of people living in affected communities or face penalties into the $ billions per year
