The key driver for achieving this milestone includes increased demand for flare gas to power projects, as well as the company’s innovative approach to monetising stranded gas assets.
With a global focus on flaring reduction spearheaded by initiatives such as the World Bank’s Global Gas Flaring Reduction Partnership (GGFR), the company has emerged as a global leader in flare gas to power generation solutions.
To date, the company has delivered over 210 projects worldwide, including an offshore project in Indonesia that harnessed flare gas to generate 27 weeks of reliable power supply for an offshore microgrid.
In the Middle East, it is currently delivering a project that’s repurposing 40 million standard cubic feet of APG per day, reducing the operator’s flaring by a third and saving 840 tonnes of carbon emissions daily.
Alongside the success of the company’s flare gas operations, Aggreko has driven growth by leveraging its expertise in modular gas to power solutions, engineering an innovative way to monetise stranded gas.
With the GGFR pushing for an end to routine flaring by 2030, the company has anticipated significant further growth and is investing over £200m to increase the size of its gas generation fleet as part of its overall commitment to achieve Net Zero in its own operations.
The company has aimed to reduce the amount of diesel fuel used in customer solutions by 50 per cent by transitioning them to gas and continuing to repurpose waste gas into power.
The company is also extending its service offering, including expanding to CNG, LNG and LPG virtual pipeline solutions, with several projects already supported by this ongoing investment.
Billy Morley, Global Head of Oil and Gas, Aggreko, said, “Flare gas serves no productive purpose yet accounts for around 400 million tons of all CO2 equivalent emissions – enough to power Sub-Saharan Africa. This wasted energy can be repurposed to supply electricity in countries that need it the most, and we are working with customers around the world to provide solutions to deliver such services to a range of projects and requirements. This forms an important part of Aggreko’s sustainability commitments by offering competitive cleaner technologies and fuels that guarantee reliability of supply as alternatives – for example, we are seeing gas displace diesel in more projects than ever before.”
