Recognizing the importance of addressing climate risk, Rystad Energy has developed a comprehensive, field-level oil and gas emissions database over the past decade. The database encompasses currently producing fields, fields under development, and non-sanctioned discoveries. It provides a crucial tool for industry stakeholders, enabling them to analyze the carbon performance of companies and portfolios in detail. Additionally, Rystad Energy utilizes monitoring technology, including satellite images, to track flaring activity. Here are some of the highlights designed to meet your workflows.

Key highlights

Emissions Solution: Compare and benchmark emission footprint from various gas supply sources, both pipelines and LNG in different markets

This tool provides emission assessments throughout the natural gas value chain. You can conduct trade route feasibility studies by connecting with existing infrastructure, identifying future industrial opportunities and assessing new facilities at a field and facility level

North America Sustainability Solution: Upstream CO2 and CH4 emissions on an asset/basin level in North America

Combines regional intelligence on upstream emissions, standardized ESG benchmarking for public companies, validated gas flaring trends based on reported and satellite data, and analytical insights into these key topics

CCUS Solution: New project risk assessment scorecard

Our new project risk assessment scorecard provides users understanding of risk associated to current projectd in the pipeline  based on 11 parameters which includes funding, lifecycle, licensing, end use of CO2, distance between capture and storage etc.

Our experts views

Climate risk is increasingly seen as an important factor when assessing future investment risk. Governments, industry players, investors, banks, insurance companies and other stakeholders are becoming more and more focused on all elements of the energy transition and the associated risks – including carbon emissions from different sectors’ value chains. The oil and gas sector, which accounts for over half of global anthropogenic CO2 emissions, has come under substantial pressure to be more transparent on emissions and to implement measures to reduce its carbon footprint. While the transparency is still low in many regions, the trend is positive – more exploration and production (E&P) companies are reporting emissions data and are committed to cutting emissions through portfolio optimization, operational efficiency gains, carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS), and other decarbonization efforts. Over the past couple of years, E&P companies have stepped up efforts to reshape their strategies for energy transition, including investments into low-carbon segments (diversification), decarbonization commitments, and emission reduction targets. Europe has been in the forefront of this development, followed by North America.
