Egypt is thriving: Reflections on the Petroleum Conference in Cairo

As Egypt’s flagship Petroleum Conference has just finished it’s perhaps worth reflecting on the five themes we heard: 1) There is a real sense of excitement in the energy sector within the region. As His Excellency the Minister of Petroleum Tarek El-Molla outlined, Egypt has seen significant recent exploration success, as reflected in the record-breaking […]

Exploration success announced by flaring – a sustainability challenge

Exploration success announced by flaring – a sustainability challenge

It’s interesting that exploration success is still announced with images of flaring – some companies think that this might challenge their sustainability credentials Sharjah National Oil Corporation (SNOC) announced the discovery of natural gas and condensate onshore at the Mahani field in Sharjah, distributing a flaring photo in this Gulf News article Capterio perspective: Whilst […]

Risk-free, low cost and low emission barrels: why flaring is the oil and gas industry’s $27 billion opportunity between the trees

Risk-free, low cost and low emission barrels: why flaring is the oil and gas industry’s $27 billion opportunity between the trees

Oil and companies invest an estimated $550 billion each year to explore and develop new oil and gas resources to replace the c. 60 billion oil-equivalent barrels (i.e. oil + gas) consumed each year.

Flare capture represents an opportunity to add $27 billion-worth risk-free, low-cost new barrels.

It reduces the wastage of natural gas and CO2-equivalent emissions.

Why Europe’s gas-supplying countries have some of the largest opportunities to create value by monetising flared gas

Why Europe’s gas-supplying countries have some of the largest opportunities to create value by monetising flared gas

Europe’s nearest gas-supplying countries have not only some of the highest absolute volumes, but also, some of the highest “flaring intensity” rates. Several countries therefore have potential market risk (due to growing environmental concerns), but also a huge opportunity to create value.

How Saudi Aramco can ensure continued value post-IPO: Keep driving down the carbon-intensity of production

How Saudi Aramco can ensure continued value post-IPO: Keep driving down the carbon-intensity of production

Saudi Aramco recently joined the zero routine flaring initiative. By tackling its top flares it can immediately accelerate from its rivals on carbon intensity and deliver for shareholders post-IPO. A thought-piece by Capterio.
