DNOW Process Solutions uses advanced technology to help you monitor and reduce your carbon footprint, meet your scope 1 GHG emissions targets and minimize fuel gas waste.
Defining the Methane Emissions Problem
As the main component of natural gas, methane represents the 2nd biggest component of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the petroleum and natural gas systems sector, especially in the Permian, Gulf Coast and Williston basins. Pneumatic controllers and actuators are one of the largest sources of methane emissions in oil & gas production, transmission and storage applications.

These GHG emissions, measured by carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) volume, represent the potential effect for climate change. Operators understand that significantly reducing reported emissions is an important part of meeting company and government environmental targets. Not only that – wasted natural gas represents a considerable loss of a valuable energy resource and revenue for oil and gas operators.
Helping You Reduce GHG Emissions
DNOW Process Solutions experts work with you to determine your specific requirements, based on your equipment and your emissions goals. We size compressors appropriate for the pneumatic devices you have on site to eliminate fuel gas use, if possible.
