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.
