DHAHRAN, Saudi ArabiaSaudi Aramco is joining the World Bank Initiative: ‘Zero Routine Flaring by 2030.’

The company says it is strongly committed to reducing flaring, which accounted for less than 1% of its total raw gas production during the first half of this year.

Ahmad A. Al-Saadi, senior vice president Technical Services said the company had already invested in a range of flaring reduction technologies and programs to achieve the reduction.

“Beyond this initiative, we are also investing in advanced technologies to enable greater efficiency and lower emissions in transport, carbon-free hydrogen fuels, and carbon capture, utilization and storage.”

The company claimed its 2018 upstream carbon intensity figure was among the lowest worldwide at 10.2 kg of CO2 equivalent per boe.
