Presentation Contents

  • Qatar, and Global Emissions

  • El-Shaheen Gas Flare Reduction and Gathering (GFR&G) Project

  • Lesson Learned for other GFR&G projects

  • Conclusions


Qatar co 2 emissions

Qatar & CO2 Emissions

  • In 2002, Qatar emitted 28 million tons of CO2

  • Only 0.13% Global emissions...

  • ...but about 37 t per capita compared with...

    • 27 t per capita in USA

    • ...or roughly 10 t in UK and Denmark

    • ...or roughly 2.5 t in China

Qatar Takes this Seriously!


Qatar s actions

Qatar’s Actions

  • Qatar acceeded to the Kyoto Protocol on 11 January, 2005

  • HSE Regulation Authority designated as National Authority...

  • ...to deal with Kyoto compliance...

  • ...sustainable developments making use of...

  • ...the clean development mechanisms


Even prior to kyoto accession

Even Prior to Kyoto Accession

  • Qatar made a major investment at Al-shaheen

  • The $300 + million project was started in 2002 and completed during 2004

    between 2004 and 2020....

  • ...32 million tonnes of high quality hydrocarbons will be exported to processing plants in Qatar’s industrial complex

    • Equivalent to 230 million barrels of oil

  • ...84 million tonnes of CO2 emissions will be avoided at El-Shaheen oil production operations

Project will cap El-Shaheen’s CO2 emissions and will avoid almost 4 years of National emissions at 2002 levels

Of which 32 million t was before 2005


Economic benefits

Economic Benefits

1.23 Mt gas saved during 2005

was worth $369 million

At $42/b oil equivalent

Lifetime revenue addition will be over $10 billion

at $42/boe


Low cost of co 2 avoidance by gas flare reduction at shaheen

Low Cost of CO2 Avoidance by Gas Flare reduction at Shaheen

CO2 avoidance costs in Annex I countries are high

EU ETS at € 23/t

Al-Shaheen GFR cost $350M/84M = $4.17/t CO2


Additional economic benefits qatar can trade this advantage

Additional Economic BenefitsQatar can trade this advantage

  • Most industialized nations cannot meet their Kyoto obligations from reductions within their borders

  • Such reductions are costly for highly industrialized nations

  • The Kyoto process makes it attractive for Annex I countries to purchase less costly Certified Emission Reductions from Annex II countries, like Qatar

Qatar can benefit from these trades


Al shaheen experience shows that gas flaring

Al-Shaheen Experience Shows that Gas Flaring...

  • ...in a hydrocarbon constrained Globe

  • ...wastes valuable resources – and money!

    Gas Flare reduction & gathering...

  • …increases hydrocarbon reserves

  • …pays off the investment rapidly

  • …reduces CO2 emissions at low cost

Further GFR projects are also likely to benefit Qatar & the Environment


Co 2 is a vital resource for qatar s hydrocarbon future

CO2 is a vital resource for Qatar’s Hydrocarbon Future

  • When hydrocarbons are transformed or burned, CO2 is formed

  • CO2 released into the environment increases already high atmospheric concentration

  • CO2 captured from industrial processes in Qatar can be returned to the oil or gas reservoir ....

  • ...to enhance the recovery and increase the reserves of Qatar’s valuable hydrocarbons

Mostly in the Gulf


Potential for qatar

Potential for Qatar

  • Qatar’s proven oil reserves are ~ 15 billion barrels (OPEC Annual Report, 2004)

  • Probable Original Oil in Place, 37 billion barrels (speculative)

  • Experience in carbonate reservoirs of the West Texas Permian indicates that recoverable oil reserves can be boosted by between 5 and 20%...

  • …or in Qatar by between 1.8 and 7.5 billion CO2 -incremental barrels…

  • …thereby extending Qatar’s oil production life by between 5 and 20 years (at today’s rate of 1 million bbls/day)


How much co 2 is needed

How much CO2 is needed?

  • At an industry average of 3 barrels of incremental oil from 1 ton of CO2 injected & permanently sequestered...

  • ...Qatar will therefore need to supply its oil fields with between 600 and 2000 million tons of CO2 over the lifetime of EOR

  • …thus taking a Globally significant quantity of CO2 from the atmosphere

Global Emissions of CO2 during 2003 were ~ 24,000 million tons


Where will the co 2 come from

Where will the CO2 Come from?

  • Sour gas production & treatment

  • Gas to Liquid industries

  • LNG plants

  • Ammonia and hydrogen production

  • Other petrochemicals

  • Oil refining

  • Cement and other manufacturing plants

  • Power generation & water desalination

  • Other industries and possibly imports


Next steps

Next Steps

  • Strengthen the National Regulation Authority in Qatar to..

  • ..develop a CO2 reduction strategy taking into account

    • Qatar’s economic interests

    • Economic and environmental interest’s of Qatar’s many Global trading partners

    • Growing need for energy efficiency

    • Longer term diversification of energy resources

  • Development of a National CO2 inventory for Qatar...

    • ...listed according to cost and feasibility of capture

  • Development of an inventory of CO2 sinks

    • Listed acording to suitability for EOR or EGR (enhanced gas recovery)
