One of the many ways the offshore industry is significantly reducing emissions is by sourcing power from onshore or from offshore renewables but what are companies actually doing about it?
Apollo has been supporting clients from feasibility through to detailed design with a range of quick wins (easy to implement solutions) and longer term planned improvements.
A big piece of this is in electrification
Oil and gas operators are looking at various electrification concepts from offshore wind or power from shore, however for some assets the cost benefit doesn’t stack up, for others there is a greater prize.
Apollo has been providing advice to our client base in this area, drawing from a decade working in the marine and subsea sectors to give knowledge and thought through working ideas of how to progress asset electrification.
Apollo took a holistic approach and ensured consideration of all the moving parts of such a development, none of these are in isolation. At the end we delivered a roadmap for how to do and what does not make sense from a commercial or environmental perspective.
In parallel, Apollo also worked through concept to the commissioning of a number of process optimisation scopes (that is another case study in itself!)
which has cumulatively led to nearly 20% reduction in emissions.
