An operational model for flaring, methane and CO2 emissions management

How no company has mastered it all yet - but here's a way it can be done 0

Friday, June 16, 2023, Webinar, Online

Managing emissions is an operational activity, not a technology. It safe to say that no oil and gas company has yet mastered all of the components.

In our webinar on June 16 we’ll hear from a technology start-up based in Calgary and Houston, Highwood Emissions Management, which has got the closest we have seen to providing an operating model together with digital technology for doing it.

Good management of emissions would ideally mean:

Highwood’s offering builds on a leak detection and repair simulation software built by the company founder as part of a PhD thesis 7 years ago, now available open source.

You can hear more and join the discussion about how to do it better on June 16.
