Every year industry leaders, prominent subject experts and decision makers meet at the the Asian Oil, Gas & Petrochemical Engineering Exhibition (OGA) in Malaysia.
Fluenta will display its ultrasonic measurement technology to educate companies on how to effectively monitor and report flare gas emissions. This year marks the first OGA exhibition since the opening of Fluenta’s new office in Kuala Lumpur to serve the Asian market.
Gas flaring in Malaysia
In 2016, a historic agreement was reached in Paris under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Governments from countries across the globe agreed stronger and more ambitious climate action was urgently required. Among them was Malaysia which agreed to play a role in implementing the newly formed Paris Agreement and reducing global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
As a significant contributor to global CO2 emissions, gas flaring is a process that quickly drew attention. While failing to capture gas is not a significant issue in Malaysia, as a major oil and gas producer gas flaring remains a routine process. When there is no infrastructure in place for oil and gas companies to manage excess natural gas, operators are forced to vent or flare it for safety reasons. This reliance on flaring causes CO2 to be regularly released into the atmosphere and contribute to the country’s GHG emissions.
Peer reviews of Malaysia’s energy efficiency initiatives commend the country’s recent efforts. Emissions are already down from eight metric tonnes per capita in 2014 – despite increasing energy demand – and the country is aiming to reduce emission intensity by 35 per cent by 2030.
A critical part of Malaysia’s reduction of emissions will be the monitoring and measurement of natural gas. Accurate measurement allows operators to better identify the processes that result in the most gas flaring and will help with emissions reporting to effectively meet new targets.
Fluenta’s FGM 160 meter uses an ultrasonic measurement technique to measure gas flow, complemented by ultrasonic transducers that cover a wide range of gas temperatures and pressures. Fluenta’s non-intrusive transducers do not interrupt gas flow and can be used across a wide range of pipe diameters – from 6 to 72 inches. The FGM 160 achieves pinpoint accuracy across a varied flow and temperature range by deploying both wide band and dual frequency techniques.
Join us at the Asian Oil, Gas & Petrochemical Engineering Exhibition (OGA) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (booth 1308 in hall one) to find out how Fluenta can help your company maintain regulatory compliance with trusted and accurate flare gas measurement.
