Call for emissions measuring and monitoring technologies to shape groundbreaking roadmap

The Net Zero Technology Centre (NZTC) and North Sea Transition Authority (NSTA) have today [4th October] launched a call for emissions measuring and monitoring technologies, giving companies the opportunity to have their technology featured in a new roadmap.

The roadmap, developed as a collaborative initiative between NZTC and NSTA, will provide asset operators of both fixed and floating installations and onshore terminals with data on the emissions measuring and monitoring technologies currently available and on the horizon. It will also include readiness of technologies, modification requirements, and indicative implementation costs.

Technology developers with solutions focusing on power generation, flaring, and venting, that are nearing deployment capability or already deployed are encouraged to apply. Submissions will be evaluated for suitability in the roadmap against a range of criteria including suitability for offshore application, scale of modifications needed, and measurement accuracy.

Rebecca Allison, Chief Operating Officer, NZTC said: “The technology landscape is a rapidly evolving space. Understanding the solutions available, their potential, and how to implement them is key and this roadmap will provide an invaluable resource for operators. Through our latest call, we will identify the emissions measuring and monitoring technologies that are going to drive progress, fill the gaps identified by industry, and encourage wider adoption.”

Doug Griffin, NSTA Measurement and Allocation Manager, said: “The roadmap will play a key role in ensuring the best technologies for measuring and monitoring emissions are widely adopted. This will improve the reliability of operators’ estimates of greenhouse gas emissions from their upstream activities on the UKCS.”

Companies have until Friday 3rd November to submit their technology for consideration and can apply on
