Event Summary

The energy transition will impact the Natural Gas industry for the years to come. Reaching zero emissions in compression is attainable, thanks to a mix of current and emerging technologies.

In this paper, we first explain how to quantify the emissions of reciprocating compressors, distinguishing between fugitive, energy-related, and vented emissions. We present three real-world case studies and analyze the lessons learned, quantifying the possible improvements already achievable with today’s technology. Then, we present a practical approach to emission reduction, which can be used as a guideline to reach zero emissions and maintain them over time.


Who Should Attend

All level Engineers, Analysts, Technicians, Mechanics, FSRs, Project Managers and Reliability Engineers interested in gaining a more in-depth understanding of Natural Gas Engines and Compressors.
