Lunch'n Think Webinar: The Key to reducing GHG Emissions? Actual Measurements!!

....beginning with ground-based and worn(on PPE) sensors.

Friday, October 29, 2021

As reported previously, I have taken an in-depth look at this ‘season’s’ Reporting by 6 European Majors and 7 E&Ps with respect to GHG Emissions
A short Summary:

  • two of the Majors and one of the E&Ps are ‘trying hard’;
  • others are quite vague, ‘trust us’;
  • a minority appear to be pursuing Business as Usual

Above all……
For ‘Bottom Up’ Reporting there is too much reliance on laboratory-based ‘engineering estimates’, only two of the companies have measurement plans….

‘Top Down’ measurement methodologies are emerging that use:

  • Satellites carrying a variety of sensors (LIDAR and InfraRed for example); going from raw to useful data needs atmospheric modelling, Analytics and Machine Learning
  • Ground-based and UAV-borne sensors (especially the new Quantum technology-LIDAR ones)
  • ‘Walkers’ with Optical Gas Imagers, ‘Sniffers’ etc

And the Integration of this multi-physics into a coherent 3D image……
………of a drilling rig, an offshore platform, a processing plant, a pipeline, a refinery…..and other industrial sites such as chemical, cement and steel works.

This Webinar addresses what can be done with Ground Stations and by ‘Walkers’ (especially operations staff carrying sensors on their PPE).

Measuring Localised Emissions with Walking Sensors

View PDF   
Talk Description
Measuring localised emissions can pose several challenges for fixed sensors:

  • ? Where to locate the sensors?
  • ? How many do you need?
  • ? At what cost?

But, what if you could complement your fixed sensor data with data from “walking sensors” which
follow your frontline workforce as they go about their daily tasks? This could expand the areas
monitored on your site, giving you early visibility of potential emission hotspots and allowing you to
take action before they escalate.

Better still, what if you could achieve this by re-purposing sensors you may already issue today to
your workforce?

This webinar will attempt to address these questions, highlighting the potential opportunity for realtime
insights into localised emissions.

Kevin’s career has focused on solving customer and industry problems in the areas of
Condition Monitoring, Process Automation, Paperless Inspection, Track & Trace and
Wearable Safety. Data-driven insights made possible using software and industrial digital
technologies has been a constant thread throughout this journey.

During this time, he has held various leadership positions, helping to turnaround, build and grow the respective businesses. On-site experience in onshore/offshore Oil & Gas,
PetroChem, Power Gen, Whisky and other industries has maintained a practical viewpoint.

Working as an independent advisor today, Kevin helps startup and established businesses
on their journey to profitable growth.

Talk Description
The Canary-S is a continuous solar powered air quality and meteorological monitoring system designed to be class leading in size, reliability and flexibility.

With cellular communication these systems can be placed nearly anywhere to provide measurements on particulate matter, targeted gases and meteorological data.

Multiple units can be deployed to create a network of real-time data captured and stored on the Canary Cloud independent data platform.
Dr. Anna Scott is an atmospheric scientist, an entrepreneur, and the Chief Science Officer of Project Canary.

She received her PhD in the Earth and Planetary Science Department at the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences at Johns Hopkins. She also holds a Bachelor’s degree in mathematics from University of Chicago, a Master’s degree in Applied Mathematics from the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), and a Master of Arts and Sciences in Earth Science from Johns Hopkins University.

Finding Petroleum

Review and Q&A followed by Close no later than 14:15

David Bamford is well known around the oil & gas industry both as an explorer and a geophysicist. He holds a Physics degree from the University of Bristol and a Ph.D in Geological Sciences from the University of Birmingham.

Since 2004, he has been a non-executive director at Tullow Oil plc, being recruited for this position especially for his exploration knowledge. He serves on the Nominations and Remuneration Committees, and was chairman of the latter, and Senior Independent Director, for 3 years prior to his retire from the board at the end of April 2014.

He was on the board of Premier Oil from May 2014 to May 2016.

He retired from BP plc in 2003, his last four positions being Chief Geophysicist (1990-1995), Business Unit Leader (General Manager) for first West Africa and then Norway (1995-1999), and finally Head of Exploration until 2003.

He has served on the boards of Paras Ltd, a small exploration and IS/IT consulting company in which he held 22% equity, until its sale to RPS Energy in 2008 and Welltec a/s, a Danish well engineering company, as the nominee of the private equity investor Riverside.

From 2012 to 201 he was on the board of ASX-quoted Australia Oriental Energy as a non-executive director.

He was a founder of Richmond Energy Partners, a small oil & gas research house, and several media companies that focus on the oil & gas sector, and has served as an advisor to Alliance Bernstein, Opus Executive, the Parkmead Group plc, and Kimmeridge Energy LLP. Since retiring from BP, he has undertaken asset and company valuation projects for investment banks, hedge funds and small oil companies.
