Reducing Emissions Offshore
In 2018 we undertook a significant capital investment project to reduce air emissions on our Tamar gas production platform. This project will become operational in 2019 and is projected to reduce methane emissions by approximately 93 percent and non-methane VOC emissions by approximately 98 percent. Additionally, we are implementing process improvements on the platform to contribute to emissions reductions offshore Israel. During the year, we reduced use of fuel gas and optimized our heaters by lowering temperatures at Tamar. Also, we implemented LDAR practices across our operated assets to reduced fugitive emission.
