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.
