Energy efficiency is a key lever to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, with analysis from the IEA demonstrating that up to 40% of the emission abatement required by the Paris Agreement could be delivered by energy efficiency.
Adopting energy efficiency measures is a low-cost way to reduce emissions and can also have a positive impact on operational costs.
The Ipieca-IOGP Compendium of energy and GHG efficient technologies and practices provides information on technologies and practices which can be used in upstream and downstream oil and gas facilities and advice on implementing them.
The Compendium also shows practical examples of their use where possible, and the business case for adopting the technologies and good practices.
The technologies and practices covered in this update are:
- Artificial lift
- Drilling rigs
- Electric motors
- Flowlines and pipelines
- Gas turboexpanders
- Heat pumps
- Liquid power recovery turbines
Thirteen of the fact sheets were previously updated at the end of 2022, with the remaining Compendium fact sheets to be updated and published in 2024.
All the fact sheets are available to download from the IOGP Publications library.
