Emission reduction measures undertaken/to be undertaken at a facility (if applicable)

BHP has a focus on ongoing emissions minimisation and sets a voluntary, business-wide GHG emissions reduction target every five years. Pyrenees is included in this process and is required to review its operations and identify cost-effective emissions reduction projects.

The primary opportunity for ongoing emissions reduction is through minimisation of unprocessed gas flaring. To this end, Pyrenees has developed a facility specific Flare and Vent Management Plan which covers the following:

  • Overarching flare management strategies - Specified to minimise flaring during both normal operational mode and planned and unplanned outages
  • Annual flare targets - Based on estimates applied for this forecast to set the minimum safe levels of flaring required while maintaining optimal crude production rates
  • Benchmarking reviews against industry peers - Both for flaring per unit hydrocarbon produced and GHG emissions per unit hydrocarbon produced. Pyrenees average flaring rates have been found to align with regional averages.
  • Monitoring and reporting requirements - To track performance and provide visibility in weekly and monthly reports.
​​​​​​​​​​The potential for other emissions reduction opportunities is regularly reviewed through the annual internal GHG emissions reduction target data collection process.
