Statistical Study of Carbon Intensities in the GOM and PB

In addressing carbon emissions as the primary contributor to climate change, a study was conducted to examine the total carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emitted into the atmosphere from the production of crude oil and gas in the two largest producing regions of the U.S: the Permian Basin (PB) and the Gulf of Mexico (GOM). The objective of this report is not to compare the carbon intensities between PB and GOM, but rather to understand the causes of deviations observed between the two Basins, particularly in the years 2016 to 2018. This report details the initiative, including the research of emissions and production data from three federal agencies: the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM).

Environmental Reporting App

Environmental Reporting App is a tool to digitize the federally regulated environmental reporting on carbon and waste generated on offshore rigs, as well as seismic vessels, helicopters, and support vessels. Additionally, the app is used to assist with voluntary industry reporting for worldwide operations.

ESG Scope 3 CO 2 Emissions for Business Travel: A Comparison of Static and Dynamic Models

The energy industry comprises 76% of the United States total anthropogenic emissions profile, of which oil and gas producers are the largest emitters. Because climate change is a complex and global problem, the Paris Agreement and the concept of ‘net zero emissions’ have driven the recognition that emissions (including scope 3) have to be viewed in the context of their systems or value chains.


With the rising concerns over climate change, the question that has risen to popularity is “what is my carbon footprint?” People want to know what the carbon footprint of the clothes they choose to wear is, what the carbon footprint of the electronics they us, the products they use and even the food they eat. It is well documented that the carbon footprint of producing meat for consumption is considerably higher compared to that of a vegetarian diet.

This article dives into the carbon footprint of America’s staple food: a burger. The scope of this article was to determine carbon emissions based on beef and veggie burgers consumed in an average year. The emissions factors used in the study are based on life cycle analysis of the main ingredients used for veggie patties and a life cycle analysis of producing beef.

Production Maintenance

Digital maintenance is the answer if you are looking to manage large-scale operations at oil fields. This article explains how Production Maintenance Tracker trumps manual management of extraction at oil wells.
