Gas Flaring

Syngenik, in cooperation with other oil firms has been involved in detailed engineering and procurement for the Kuwait LNG liquefaction train.

The plant, town of AhmadiKuwait, will utilize Optimized Cascade(SM) LNG process and will produce LNG; LPGs, such as propane and butane; condensate; and domestic pipeline gas.

The Kuwait LNG project is an integrated gas utilization project encompassing offshore and onshore operations to monetize gas resources from blocks located in Kuwait.  The project will reduce natural gas flaring and greenhouse gas emissions from offshore oil producing areas, facilitate continued offshore oil field development, and contribute to the development of a future natural gas-based industry within Kuwait. Syngenik engineering, procurement, and construction contract covers the onshore portion of this project.

Syngenik is committed to managing our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by improving
energy efficiency, reducing flaring and venting and fixing methane leaks when they occur.
We are also investing in carbon dioxide injection projects.

Since 2013, we have reduced flaring by 26.2 percent. We have developed internal country-specific plans to minimize gas flaring, and we will soon join the World Bank–led Global Gas Flaring Reduction Partnership. Syngenik flares natural gas when required for safety and operational purposes and in areas where pipelines or other gas transportation alternatives
do not exist.

One of Syngenik business interest is to minimize fugitive methane and to maximize the
volume of natural gas that we commercialize. We
monitor and verify the integrity of our wells and production equipment with regular inspections and safety tests. To more efficiently track fugitive emissions, we use infrared cameras in select oil and gas operations around the globe to help pinpoint and remedy leaks. We continue to test and deploy new innovations that will improve detection and
reduction of emissions.

Syngenik continues to manage its emissions profile, and will deploy abatement technologies when they make sense for the business and for the applicable geological settings. For example, the Gorgon carbon dioxide injection project is anticipated to be the
largest greenhouse gas emissions reduction project undertaken by an industry globally. We are amongst the energy companies participating in the Quest project through a joint venture in Alberta, Canada. Our investments in the Quest project estimates $500000 and is expected to reduce GHGs by about  2500 tonnes per year once operational, or an amount similar to the
GHG emissions from the electricity used by approximately 62000 U.S. homes in a year

Syngenik has invested more than $750000 in carbon capture and storage research and development over the last five years. Syngenik also participates in joint-industry research projects to facilitate the
development of CCS technologies that are economical, reliable and safe in a bid to reduce the cost of CO capture through technology improvements and assure the long-term security of geologically stored CO .
Syngenik will join the leadership role on all technical and policy teams of the CO Capture Project, a group of major energy companies working together to advance the technologies that will underpin the deployment of industrial-scale CCS in the oil and gas industry.
