Scope 1 Emissions: How to inventory, quantify, and report

This course focuses on measuring, quantifying, and reporting Scope 1 greenhouse gas emissions from upstream oil & gas (O&G) facilities. Scope 1 emissions are emitted directly to the atmosphere from within a facility fence line. Regulatory requirements, as well as voluntary reporting guidance, have increased the importance of understanding and reporting Scope 1 emissions. To understand and quantify emissions, the site fence line must be understood, an equipment inventory must be developed, methodology must be confirmed, and assurance must take place to ensure that emissions are adequately reported. Various methods exist for emissions quantification including direct continuous emissions monitoring, sampling, and emissions factor development. These methods, commonly called method 1, 2, and 3, will be described, and an overview of when each method is appropriate will be given.

Identifying sources of emissions are the first step in quantifying emissions. Typical Scope 1 emissions include combustion, flaring, venting, and fugitives. Knowing your sources and understanding how the system functions are crucial for accurate quantification.

The course will conclude with a real facility example, giving students the chance to put their new skills to use by identifying typical emissions sources, quantifying them, and reporting them.

Who should attend?

  • The course is recommended for any individual who designs, maintains, or operates facilities within the O&G industry, including operations and maintenance personnel and their environmental counterparts who conduct quantification and reporting.
  • This will help operations and maintenance personnel to understand emissions so they can support reduction efforts.

Learning outcomes:

  • The primary objective is to help course participants understand how to quantify emissions in upstream O&G facilities.
  • This knowledge will help participants support their company in ensuring emissions are reported adequately, regulatory requirements are met, and emissions reduction targets are met. Specific outcomes include:
  • Understanding of equipment that leads to emissions
  • Understanding of quantification methodologies (method 1, 2, and 3) and when each method is appropriate
  • Understanding of the importance of verification and assurance
  • High level understanding of reporting requirements
