What's it about


The project activity involves greenhouse gas capture from an existing oil production site. In addition, the remote, sparsely populated region and its communities profit from job creation, investments into the local educational system and donations to people in need.

Technically, the project captures associated gas, a by-product of oil production that would otherwise have been flared. Modern facilities have been installed to clean the gas and process it into dry gas and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), fuels with a significantly lower emission factor than the still widely used kerosene. By this, the associated gas is not only kept from being released into the atmosphere, it now also replaces dirtier fuels in the regional market.

As a result of the flaring reduction activity, the oil field’s greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions are significantly reduced. Locally, the mitigated flaring and the utilization of dry gas and LPG for fuel result in better air quality.

By providing a cleaner alternative source of energy at more affordable cost, the region’s increasing power demand can be met, sustainable development of the local economy is supported, and general awareness for clean energy is raised among workers, local student and the general public.
