Methane slip from LNG is now on the COP26 agenda
-Crude oil VOC from Cargo tanks left unattended although solutions are readily available
Methane is harmful – to say the least
VOC has a high concentration of Methane which itself is a highly potent GHG and over 20-year and 100-year time horizons, methane is respectively 86 times and 36 times more potent a GHG than CO2 and according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Methane accounts for about a quarter of all the heat trapped in the atmosphere since the pre-industrial era accounting for 0.3 degr. C of the 1.1 degr. C that the world has already warmed.
The overlooked problem
Around 70 million barrels of hydrocarbons are lost yearly due to evaporation of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) during loading, storage and transportation of crude oil on ships.
ROI is potent – to say the least
Furthermore, the lost amount of VOC represents a value of 3.0 to 3.5 billion USD annually, and if only a few percent of this is used for investments in VOC handling systems you can actively help reduce the harmful effect on the planet.
