Project Industry: Oil and Gas – Conventional

  • Greenhouse gas emissions reduction in integrated, optimized natural gas transmission line systems

    Gazoduq will evaluate the feasibility of using electrification, artificial intelligence, and machine learning to decarbonize natural gas pipelines from Alberta to Quebec. The project will assess the feasibility of using renewable energy to power large scale electric drives for three compressors used in the transmission of natural gas. At 40 megawatts each, the electrification of […]

  • Canadian Natural Fugitive Emissions Study Using Aerial Detection Technology

    Canadian Natural will pilot an Alternative Fugitive Emissions Management (alt-FEMP) aerial screening technology coupled with ground-based detection. This project is intended to be a part of Canadian Natural’s larger overall Alt-FEMP program, which will cover their conventional oil and gas facilities, province-wide, across a diverse set of operational conditions. With Canadian Natural’s scale (almost 20% […]

  • Multi Component Downhole Injection System

    Challenger Technical Service’s MCDIS project is designed to eliminate fugitive GHG emissions that occur on existing oil and gas wells. The system will offer a dramatic improvement in the success rate and lifetime of a gas migration repair by introducing new intervention equipment and methods. Two materials are injected separately into a leaking wellbore, where […]

  • Kinitics Valve Actuator for Gas Producers

    Methane venting at Canadian natural gas producers’ well sites is a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions. Pneumatic control devices that use natural gas to operate are a major contributor to this methane venting. According to a recent study, methane venting from pneumatic devices at well sites in Alberta alone is estimated at over 475,000 […]
