Nowadays the decarbonisation of hard-to-abate sectors is a key topic in the agendas of Governments, financial institutions as well as large cooperations. As in other energy-intensive industries, the oil & gas sector (O&G) is looking at solutions aimed to reduce their carbon footprint while maintaining competitiveness. The conversion of waste heat into useful power represents a viable and profitable energy efficiency improvement to hit these targets. In this framework, Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) technology represents a feasible option to exploit waste heat and boost the overall efficiency of the O&G sector with minimum impact on the existing facilities.
This webinar brings to light the latest developments of the ORC-based heat recovery solutions for the oil & gas industry, with a focus on the US northeast natural gas transportation system; specifically, this webinar analyses the waste heat exploitation within Gas Compressor Stations (GCS).
In order to have a more practical view of the waste heat recovery potential in GCS, the webinar presented a specific project case underlining the results achieved with a particular focus on the green energy produced per year and the related CO2 savings.
In addition, this webinar took a closer look at the US incentives dedicated to these decarbonisation technologies; specifically the REC (Renewable Energy Credits) and the ITC (Investment Tax Credit).
