Neptune Energy endorses World Bank Zero Routine Flaring initiative
21 October 2021Neptune Energy today announced its endorsement of the World Bank’s Zero Routine Flaring by 2030 initiative.
The initiative brings together governments, companies and development institutions to eliminate routine gas flaring in oil production no later than 2030.
Eliminating the routine flaring of gas is a significant and necessary step towards reducing emissions and ensuring valuable energy resources are not wasted.
Neptune Energy’s VP Operations Europe, Pete Jones, said: "Neptune has set ambitious emissions reduction targets across our operations, with our endorsement of World Bank’s Zero Routine Flaring by 2030 initiative further demonstrating our commitment.
"We already have one of the lowest methane intensities in the industry at 0.02%. But we want to go further, which is why we are supporting this initiative.
"This commitment is in line with our broader decarbonisation initiatives, which include ambitious targets to achieve a carbon intensity of 6 kg CO2/boe and net zero methane emissions by 2030. To achieve these targets, Neptune is deploying a full range of initiatives which include using best available technologies to eliminate routine flaring, upgrading equipment and improving energy efficiency.”
Neptune will report annually on its flaring and progress towards meeting the initiative’s objective.
