Optical Gas Imaging in US Regulatory Framework

April 24, 2024
FLIR Systems
Since its inception in 2005, Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) has been an integral part of emission reduction in the oil and gas industry. Over that time, OGI cameras have been the center of the LDAR and EHS markets as the flagship technology for emissions mitigation. Beginning in 2008 with the Alternate Work Practice and most recently as the BSER for NSPS OOOOb and Appendix K of the March 6, 2024, U.S. EPA regulation, OGI technology has proven to be an efficient and effective means of regulatory compliance while also empowering oil and gas operators to increase safety and enhance productivity. The newest in OGI cameras have advanced features that help users meet these stringent regulatory requirements and increase LDAR inspection efficacy. In this webinar, FLIR Global Business Development Manager, Craig O’Neill will discuss how the NSPS OOOOb elevates the use of Optical Gas Imaging for leak detection. Who Should Attend: Air Quality Professionals, Compliance Officers, Directors of Compliance, EHS Professionals, Environmental Professionals, Fugitive Emissions Professionals, HSE Professionals, LDAR Professionals, Maintenance Managers, OGI Technicians, Operations Managers, Platform Managers, Reliability Professionals.

Sustainable Cement-Free System to Decarbonize Well Construction

November 01, 2023
SLB
Decarbonizing the well construction process while ensuring safety and performance standards is critical to our industry’s pathway to net zero. EcoShield™ geopolymer cement-free system is a breakthrough that delivers industry-standard zonal isolation capabilities while significantly minimizing the impact from upstream oil and gas production. EcoShield aims to minimize the CO2 footprint for oil and gas well construction and beyond. An industry-first technology eliminates up to 85 percent of embodied CO2 emissions compared with conventional cement systems. EcoShield system has the potential to avoid up to 5 million metric tons of CO2 emissions annually. EcoShield family of products can be deployed throughout various phases of the well life cycle including abandonment across a range of field applications, including corrosive environments while delivering superior technical performance. The technology fits within standard oilfield cementing workflows without major changes to the design process, onsite execution, or post-job evaluation. EcoShield is an example of forward-thinking, innovative technology that will be able to be scaled and deployed to help continue the decarbonization of the oil and gas industry. These types of more sustainable, lower-carbon technologies are critically important today as we continue to discover and develop the new energy solutions of tomorrow.
