The online Ipieca-IOGP database provides an introduction to energy efficiency measures for oil and gas facilities, and aims to raise awareness and uptake of such technologies and practices across the industry.
The examples are based largely on existing documentation, and accompanying case studies are provided where possible. Whilst there are existing sources of information on upstream and downstream energy efficiency and GHG emissions reductions for the industry, these are not always easy to locate or freely available. This database seeks to resolve that by providing a single central resource.
The 2022 updated energy efficiency technologies and good practices are:
- Alternative thermodynamic cycles
- Combined-cycle gas turbines
- Combined heat and power
- Cooling systems
- Energy-efficient design for carbon dioxide reduction
- Energy performance monitoring and optimization
- Fuel-fired furnaces and boilers
- Heat exchangers
- Open-cycle gas turbines
- Pinch analysis
The 16 other energy efficiency technologies and practices originally produced in 2013 will be updated throughout the course of 2023.
