Experts in Flare Gas Capture

We work with energy companies to monetise waste gas. Our primary focus is on the $27 billion flared gas opportunity. We facilitate access to new revenue streams, while accelerating the shift to more environmentally sustainable energy production.

Capterio brings together deep expertise and an impressive track record in technology, financing and project delivery for the oil & gas industry. We are an independent company, backed by investors who are mission-driven to find commercial solutions accelerating the energy transition.

Track Record

A brief snapshot of some of the successful gas capture projects developed by Capterio staff and associates

Zero-flare LPG facility from design to delivery

New volumes from successful field development created the need for increased capacity at a rich gas plant in Ukraine. We designed, built and delivered a zero-flare, deep-cut gas facility.

For a capital outlay of $15 million, we increased plant revenues by $38 million, and not only created a new product stream from LPG, but also the largest private LPG producer in Ukraine.

Our innovative approach identified $27 million costs savings through improved design. By leveraging our existing relationships with key suppliers, using local content and coordinated logistics early, our agile team was able to deliver the project safely and six months ahead of schedule.

Flare recovery delivered $7 million additional revenue, and up to 0.5 Mt CO2e reduction in GHG emissions.

Gas reinjection to extend field life and productivity

Gas reinjection boosts oil production

With no infrastructure or market for gas, a maturing light oil field in Komi, Russia, was producing very high rates of flaring. We developed a project using gas capture and reinjection to enhance oil recovery and reserves.

With an investment of $9 million, we delivered the project within eight months. Working with local communities, and providing technical expertise and training, we ensured the project was delivered safely to international standards. We also supported the creation of new local businesses.

We thereby extended the field life by three years, and added 7 million boe oil reserves, with $35 million value. Flare capture reduced greenhouse gas emissions by more than 1 million tonnes CO2e per year.

Innovative partnership extends value of non-core assets

A large IOC operator was facing pressure to reinvigorate mature fields in the Netherlands. But the assets were marginal, with limited available infrastructure, and the original development concept looked uneconomic.

We proposed an innovative commercial partnership, securing $40 million third-party financing, and sharing the returns with the operator. We also put forward a simpler design for two new gas plants with a pipeline to existing facilities.

In just 14 months we were able to design and build the new facilties to EU specifications, and increase production by 32 mmscf/d, generating an additional $66 million of annual revenue.
