Many of our customers have long term carbon reduction targets that they are striving to achieve. Although we live in a rapidly evolving world, Solar Turbines believes that the challenge to reduce carbon emissions will persist within the Oil & Gas industry. We can help you reach these goals. This webinar aims to highlight the current efforts and help us understand how we can further help our customers reach their carbon reduction goals.
Luke Cowell discusses how we can help reduce your carbon footprint and your total carbon tax burden. The benefits of using renewable fuels, carbon-neutral fuels, and carbon-negative fuels are addressed and presented. These include: Fuels produced from renewable resources, biofuels, green hydrogen, renewable natural gas (i.e landfill and digestor gases), blue hydrogen, and synthetic hydrocarbons.
Adam Robinson explores the advantages of new digital solutions now offered by Solar Turbines including PlantWatch and Energy Optimization.
Power Optimization allows customers to minimize their turbomachinery lifecycle costs without introducing additional production risks. The Solar Digital solution leverages real-time cloud computing, OEM turbomachinery performance data, power demand, and relevant weather data to optimize power generation operation by dynamically balancing energy demand and supply. When combined with Power Boost and/or Battery Energy Storage, customers can intelligently execute lean energy management without compromising the stability and reliability of facility power and production.
CCUS / Exhaust Gas Recirculation
Solar Turbines recognize the environmental and economic impact associated with the CO2 emissions when burning fossil fuels in our gas turbines. Solar Turbines is actively reviewing potential technology in the areas of carbon capture, utilization, and sequestration (CCUS) to reduce and capture CO2 emissions. Relevant CCUS technologies for use with gas turbines are discussed and Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) in particular is featured. EGR is a method to adapt current Solar Turbines engines into semi closed systems that enable a more cost-effective way to capture CO2 emissions.
Solar Turbines methane emission reduction solutions allow for the use of natural gas which would normally be released to atmosphere. Solar provides solutions to reinject the methane normally vented to atmosphere through a compressor’s primary dry seal vent line, as well as the gas normally vented during a compressor decompression event. In addition, Solar Turbines a SMT 60 turbomachinery package, allowing for the creation of local power grids using natural gas formally vented or flared in fracking applications.
