Sus Planet Decarbonise

Our decarbonisation thinking

The world’s global energy system emits in the region of 33GT of CO2 emissions each year. Around 20GT of this comes from the use of hydrocarbons. Clearly this sector has a very large part to play in achieving net zero by 2050. But the world needs oil and gas in the energy system for another 20-30 years for all the wonderful things humans achieve on a daily basis. Denying that truth doesn’t make it go away.

At Kent, we know the greatest change accelerators deal with the truth of today and change it, whilst also building a better tomorrow. And that’s what our decarbonisation philosophy is built around.


We work across the entire decarbonisation landscape

In asset decarbonisation we use our own digital decarbonisation solutions to maximise efficiency and output from the OEM’s, platform analytics and operations data to reduce emissions. These technically led tools including flare relief and management, inspection reduction and management, digital twins, and process modelling. Other, more operationally focused tools aim to reduce either the need for or level of activity and management of data to assess risk management of the asset.

We bring innovative ideas and approaches to our customer’s projects to enhance energy efficiency and look at introducing hydrogen into the combustion cycle. Electrification of production assets and integration into renewable energy sources will also be a key element of decarbonisation and we are helping clients figure how we get this done.

As well as our work in CCUS, we help customers craft carbon reduction master plans. We help to engineer projects that have real carbon reduction impact such as Boundary Dam in Canada where we engineered, constructed, and commissioned the world’s first commercial scale carbon capture and sequestration facility for a coal fire-powered fire station. We executed site works on the Jetty Boil-Off Gas Recovery Project for Qatargas, helping to deliver elimination of 11 million tonnes of emissions per year. Reduction of methane leaks and flare gas are also critical to achieve recent COP26 commitments.
