Methane Abatement is a Critical Lever to Reduce GHG Emissions
Methane emissions reduction is one of the fastest, most cost-effective ways to achieve the target limit of 1.5°C. Benefits of methane abatement are realized more quickly because methane has a strong global warming potential, ~84 times more powerful over a 20-year period, relative to CO2.
Moreover, more than 60% of targeted measures to reduce methane emissions have low mitigation costs and roughly half of those can be profitable, as methane leaks account for ~3-4% of total gas production, or up to $27 billion in lost revenue each year from the oil and gas industry.
The sector will require systematic monitoring, measuring and mitigation to limit methane emissions and meet decarbonization goals. John Crane is working with Smiths Digital Forge to meet this need by delivering technology and services to detect and monitor methane leaks over time from sources in remote and/or dangerous locations with affordable technology, providing customers with valuable data and enabling them to make informed decisions and take corrective actions to control emissions in a timely and cost-effective manner.
Proven Leak Prevention Experts
For more than 100 years, John Crane sealing solutions have kept process fluids and gases within systems and out of the environment. The dry gas seal, invented by John Crane, has prevented millions of tonnes of greenhouse gases from leaking into the atmosphere.
Broad Portfolio Range
Our portfolio consists of a wide range of enabling technologies providing mission-critical products and services that improve energy efficiency, process reliability, and emissions reduction including gas and wet seals, systems, filtration, coupling and asset integrity and reliability services.
Investing in New Technologies
John Crane’s new solutions go beyond preventing leaks to reduce emissions; separation seals lower nitrogen consumption while seal gas recovery systems take compressor gas leakage out of the flare and inject it back into productive use.
John Crane’s long successful track record and world class technology are positioned to play a leading role in methane emissions reduction.
We have over 100 years of proven experience preventing and repairing leaks with world class sealing technology
We have more than 200 facilities worldwide which allow us to respond quickly to issues anytime, anywhere
Our Aura Zero-Emissions seal eliminates nearly all emissions from seals. We have experience in overhauling complex pump and compressor systems
Enabling Industries to Reduce Methane Emissions with Cost-effective Solutions
Our mission is to enable industries like the oil and gas sector to reduce their methane emissions. We believe this can be achieved by helping companies identify the sources of methane emissions and providing them with cost-effective solutions to reduce or eliminate emissions and maximize efficiency.
Combining Technologies to Offer a Uniquely Holistic Solution
Once emissions have been identified, quantified and ranked using various measurement modalities, we work with our customers on proprietary sustainable remediation plans. These evergreen programs are tailored to individual customer needs, designed to enhance efficiency and cost-savings, and are well-suited to adaptation as the emissions reduction progress continues and needs change accordingly. Operators prioritize remediation work with John Crane across their “well to wheels” infrastructure.
Seal reliability depends upon a continuous supply of clean, dry gas. Our specially designed filters minimize emissions by removing liquid and particle contamination to maximize reliable seal operation.FCF Seal Gas Filtration Fuel Gas Filtration Liquid Filtration Replacement Filter Elements
