Decarbonising Downstream Production Processes

A downstream oil and gas refinery is the final link in turning hydrocarbons into the products we depend on in everyday life. Integral to downstream production processes is purifying and refining crude oil into valuable goods, like naphtha or LPG, so that they can enter the distribution channel.

Downstream processing relies on a vast range of equipment, varying in size and complexity in order to accommodate different production scales. Much of this equipment, like fractional distillation systems, is energy intensive, producing high levels of CO2 emissions as a result.

Key fact: Downstream emissions are responsible for 70-90% of lifecycle emissions from oil products, and 60-85% of lifecycle emissions from natural gas

Downstream oil and gas companies can maintain operational efficiency while working towards net zero targets by implementing sustainable solutions.

Efforts towards achieving decarbonisation in downstream operations can be achieved with the use of low-carbon liquid fuels, zero-carbon emitting hydrogen, renewable electricity sources, and automation.

Key fact: Switching from coal to gas for electricity production reduces emission from power generation by 50%

Benefits

  • Reduces emissions from purifying and processing hydrocarbons

  • Promotes higher degree of efficiency in the value chain

  • Maintains operational efficiency at a lower cost
