‘GETTING THE MEASURE OF METHANE’

Oil Industries Club members are welcome to attend events of The Worshipful Company of Fuellers. The Fuellers host regular ‘Conversations’, currently online. The next event ‘GETTING THE MEASURE OF METHANE WITH DR PETER EVANS’ on 14th April.

 

Methane is the second most abundant of the anthropogenic greenhouse gases but is also the main constituent of natural gas. And whilst oil and gas production is not the only source of methane, understanding and managing emissions from the energy sector has rapidly become a hot topic for the industry, its regulators and society.

In this conversation, Peter Evans will present the science behind methane as a greenhouse gas before exploring some of the initiatives to control emissions and improve transparency in reporting including the UN-led ‘Oil and Gas Methane Partnership’ and the new EU methane strategy . To make this a reality, a new class of methane monitoring and measurement systems is being developed and he will showcase some of the latest technology being used.

About the speaker
Peter Evans is the senior engineering product owner for methane measurement at bp where he is responsible for setting the strategic priorities for methane measurement. Methane measurement is one of ten aims defined by bp as part of its new strategy, launched in 2020, to be a net-zero company by 2050 or sooner. By 2023 the aim is to install methane measurement on major oil and gas processing sites, publish the data, and then drive a 50% reduction in methane intensity in operations. BP was a founding member of the oil and gas climate initiative and signatory to the methane guiding principles and the oil and gas methane partnership. Peter is a freemen of the the Worshipful Company of Fuellers.
