Road to Zero Emissions – GMRC

Virtual, Instructor-Led

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.

Attendees will receive 1.5 Professional Development Hours (PDH) upon completion.


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.
