BAKU, Azerbaijan, Nov.9
By Leman Zeynalova – Trend:
Fluxys company, headquartered in Belgium, wants to have its greenhouse gas emissions cut by 50% on 2017 levels by 2025, Trend reports citing the company.
“During certain types of work on the grid, Fluxys must isolate pipe sections and remove the residual gas in the pipe section to be able to work safely. To avoid releasing this gas into the atmosphere, our teams in the field are increasingly using mobile recompression units. These remove the residual gas from the pipe section undergoing maintenance and then recompress the gas to re-inject it elsewhere in the grid,” said the company.
Recently Fluxys once again used mobile recompressors during maintenance work on the Loenhout-Lillo pipeline. As a result, the venting of nearly 100,000 cubic metres of natural gas into the atmosphere could be avoided, an emissions reduction of about 1,650 tonnes of CO2. The latter corresponds to the carbon output of a car driving 360 times around the world (115 g CO2/km).
Fluxys is a fully independent gas infrastructure group headquartered in Belgium. It holds 19 percent share in the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) project, which envisages transportation of Azerbaijani gas to Europe.
Through its assets and partnerships in key European gas infrastructure the company offers gas delivery capacity in all directions to end user markets across the East/West and North/South supply routes.
Fluxys says it is committed to bring the energy transition forward.
