TotalEnergies to reduce methane emissions on its Barnett field

TotalEnergies announces deployment of an innovative technology developed by Qnergy, to significantly reduce methane emissions related to its operations on the Barnett gas field in the United States.

An innovative and efficient technology

The solution proposed by Qnergy uses a technology allowing to convert methane powered instrumentation to compressed air powered instrumentation, thus eliminating the release of methane to the atmosphere during the process. During a successful pilot project at the Barnett site in March 2021, Qnergy’s technology proved to be reliable, simple to install and easy to operate, allowing to eliminate up to 98% of the methane venting emissions related to instruments using natural gas. Following successful additional tests, TotalEnergies has decided to install this new technology by deploying 100 units on the Barnett field in 2021 and 2022. The deployment of 300 additional units throughout the field will reduce methane venting emissions from pneumatic devices by approximately 7,000 tons a year by end 2024.

From now on, new developments on the Barnett field and across the Company will be designed without instruments using natural gas.
