SPE Training Course: Methane Emission Measurement & Mitigation (MEMM)
Ticketed Event
Instructor(s) Darcy Spady

This one-day session will include a view of best practices for Carbon Management with a focus on fugitive methane reduction. It will include global and local examples of Carbon Regulations, give tools for de-risking regulatory compliances and field-proven methane reduction technology cases. It will be introduced within the framework of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and regional Environmental and Social Metrics as proposed by governments or regulators. This is especially relevant to oil and gas production and the consequent action/strategies producers need to have in place for Regulators, Banks, Investors and Governments. In particular, the session will include two technical discussions regarding the most time-critical components of methane management compliance – fugitive emission leak detection and compressor seal vent gas measurement. The session will also look at the typical data management requirements. It will also cover strategic planning, emissions quantification methodologies, facility design, data management, pneumatics, compression, leak detection and flaring.

Speaker(s) Ruth Zambrano Rivera - Managing Director | Ecuador - Colombia - Peru, SLB, Vernon Paltoo - President, National Energy Corporation of Trinidad and Tobago Limited, Francisco Paz - Exploration and Production Manager, EP Petroecuador

The transition will last several decades, but we cannot ignore that the focus on climate change and sustainability drives the future of the Energy Industry. Oil and gas will be required to satisfy global energy demand under almost any future market scenario. However, increasing solutions that will become more environmentally friendly for energy generation is a responsibility that all of us must discuss. Energy Transition started and will remain for years until the balance of the energy industry's future gets archived. LACPEC is a great audience to discuss and debate between stakeholders and the energy transition community on the topic of finding a sustainable low-carbon energy future while achieving energy security for our communities. Changing nature of the global energy market; More diverse energy mix; Increased competition, the development of renewable energy technology, and the challenge of the economy of decarbonization vs. energy security.
