NNPC Ltd, US Govt., Deloitte Collaborate on Greenhouse Gas emission reduction from OML 34

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC Ltd) is working in collaboration with the United States Department of State and international management consultancy firm, Deloitte, to meet its net-zero carbon goals.

This is expected to be carried out by embarking on a project aimed at reducing the emission of methane and other greenhouse gases from its upstream operations.

The project, at its conceptual stage, was the focus of a three-day Technical Assistance on Oil & Gas Sector Global Methane Abatement and Decarbonisation Workshop held at the PTDF Tower, in Abuja, recently.

According to a statement from the Chief Corporate Communications Officer NNPC Ltd., Olufemi O. Soneye, the workshop, which was a follow-up to an earlier one held in July 2023, was, amongst other things, aimed at defining the critical success elements of the project.

the statement read in part: “Some critical elements of the project tabled at the workshop include: determining the scope of the project, establishing a baseline for methane and carbon emissions from the selected operation sites, collecting relevant data on the selected sites, and helping the Deloitte consultants understand the operations and expectations of NNPC Ltd.

“Participants at the workshop unanimously selected OML 34 located onshore in the Western Niger Delta which has the Utorogu and Ughelli Fields as the operation site for the pilot stage of the project.

“Participants were drawn from relevant NNPC Ltd.’s subsidiaries and Departments such as Exploration & Production; New Energy; Gas Infrastructure; Health, Safety, and Environment, as well as Federal Government agencies like the National Council on Climate Change.”

The project is sponsored by the United States Department of State Bureau of Energy Resources, Energy and Mineral Governance Programme (EMGP).
