Reduce the impacts of gas activities

“Contributing to carbon neutrality and reducing other environmental impacts is a major part of making energy transition a success.”

(Elodie Rousset, Program Coordinator)

  • Improve the reliability of the measurements for quantifying methane emissions
  • Optimize the duration of detection campaigns
    and quantifying leaks
  • Decarbonize the gas transmission activity over the long term, including reducing methane emissions and contributing to carbon neutrality in line with the EU targets set for 2050
  • Reduce the impact of gas transmission activities on flora and fauna
Major challenges
Scope
  • Reduce impacts on air, global warming, flora and fauna and the soil
  • Tools/methods to make our activities acceptable to local populations
  • Tools/methods to reduce energy consumption and recover wasted pressure energy
  • Improving knowledge of methodologies
    top down
  • Qualify the methodologies
  • Identify and develop the most virtuous possible solutions to reduce environmental impacts
  • Developing new methods and solutions
    for optimizing energy consumption and recovery of lethal energy
Key drivers
Looking ahead to 2030
  • Have fast, accurate and cost-effective “bottom-up” means for quantifying methane leaks
  • Integrate “top down” means of remotely detecting and quantifying methane emissions, such as vehicles, drones, etc., into estimation and reporting methods.
  • Continue to reduce methane emissions
  • Develop solutions for recovering wasted pressure energy due to expansion at different points on the gas transmission network
