Gas transport footprint reduction
Reducing GHG emissions while also cutting operating costs
Services that reduce the environmental impact of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and improve energy efficiency can help gas transportation and distribution companies to cut operating costs and improve performance. GHG footprint reduction is about finding win-win opportunities: reducing emissions, while also cutting operating costs. In the gas industry, efforts to reduce corporate GHG footprints focus mainly on methane and CO2 emissions.
DNV KEMA’s services in this field range from developing company policies and strategies to implementing relevant measures. In our policy development work, we always seek to align GHG control with government policies and overall company strategy. The result is clear and manageable targets for footprint reduction. We are developing new ways of modeling and remodeling the performance of installations and equipment. Using these techniques, it is possible to realistically simulate efficiency measures and other operational changes on the basis of extensive empirical data. So the reduction options can be directly linked to daily operations and their potential can be explored in a meaningful way.
In close cooperation with the clients, DNV KEMA offers the following services
Advice on how to formulate an ambition that is not only measurable but also consistent with the technical possibilities, economic constraints and environmental ambitions
Quick scans to find out whether things need to be done, and whether things could be done better
In-depth performance analyses of gas compression and gas heating installations
Development of improvement measures on the basis of technical and economic evaluation
Action prioritization on the basis of technical and economic evaluation
The objective of the project is to identify ways of improving energy efficiency and reducing emissions, and to align GHG control with business economics and strategy. We also offer implementation support to help companies realize their footprint reduction ambitions and communication strategies where claim-and-proof is important.
