Oil and Gas Industry

The Oil & Gas industry uses considerable amounts of fossil fuels during its hydrocarbon production, refining and transportation processes. In fact, this sector is one of the leading sources of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

MGM Innova's Oil & Gas Team has helped Oil & Gas companies worldwide reduce their GHG footprint through projects like:

  • Reduction of flaring and venting of oil and gas components
  • Energy efficiency
  • Fuel switching
  • Carbon capture and storage

MGM Innova's portfolio of clients and partners includes multinational names such as Repsol-YPF, Shell, Petrobras, Pluspetrol, Panamerican Energy, ENAP, Petrovietnam, Sasol, Statoil, Metrogas and Petrotemex.

Reducing GHG emissions

  • Flare and vent reduction - CO2 and CH4 vent streams can be reduced, or captured and utilized as fuel, or incorporated into product streams through the installation of devices and systems or minimized, for example, through process optimization (vapor recovery units, flash tank separators, NG recompression units, plunger lift devices, low bleed pneumatic NG operated devices, improvement of pipeline shutdown and maintenance practices, etc.).
  • Fuel switching - Reduction of combustion-associated emissions by fuel substitution to lower carbon content fuels, including associated equipment modifications.
  • Energy efficiency improvements - A broad range of options are available to take advantage of better energy usage and generation throughout the facility, including waste heat/pressure/fuel utilization, power generation and miscellaneous components and systems.
  • GHG recovery and utilization - CO2 can be recovered and used, replacing fossil fuel fired CO2 production.
  • CHP implementation - Combined heat and power (CHP), also known as cogeneration, dramatically increases useful energy obtained from fossil fuels, thus reducing combustion-associated emissions.
