Gas industry CO2 per barrel?

gas processing, LNG liquefaction, LNG tanker distances and pipeline distances. Energy return on energy invested is c20x across piped gas resources and c10x across LNG resources, compared with c7-10x for…

Fast-charge the electric vehicles with gas?

is spared the strain of sudden demand surges. Is upside suggested for gas? Utilisation of the fast-charging infrastructure is much more important to the overall economics than the gas price….

Methane Leaks from Downstream Gas Distribution

This data-file tabulates the methane emissions from downstream gas distribution across 160 US gas networks, which cover 1.1M miles of mains, 61M metered customers and >90% of the country’s retail…

Gas Gathering: how much CO2 and Methane?

Gas gathering and gas processing are 50% less CO2 intensive than oil refining. Nevertheless, these processes emitted 18kg of CO2e per boe in 2018, hence the gas industry must strive…

Methane emissions detract from natural gas?

This short model calculates the impact of methane emissions on the CO2/boe of burning natural gas, compared against coal. With methane emissions fully controlled, burning gas is c60% lower-CO2 than…

The World’s Great Gas Fields and Their CO2

The CO2 content of gas fields is going to matter increasingly, for future gas development decisions: CO2 must be lowered to 50ppm before gas can be liquefied, adding cost. Moreover,…

Should the shale rigs switch to gas-fuel?

rig count to run on gas would only absorb c100mmcfd: not much of a dent in c1bcfd of flaring, as 2020 gas bottlenecks bite. This model shows all our workings….
