Schlumberger Ltd. and Saudi Aramco plan to collaborate and develop a digital platform that Schlumberger CEO Olivier Le Peuch said will be a “game changer” for the energy and hard-to-abate industrial sectors.
“Aramco and Schlumberger are hoping to draw on our long history of collaboration and partnership to deliver a digital sustainability ecosystem that enables global organizations to manage their carbon emissions and realize ambitious sustainability goals,” Le Peuch commented in a release on Sept. 20. “The sustainability platform will be a game changer for the energy and hard-to-abate industry sectors as they look toward a lower-carbon future.”
The proposed platform will enable companies in industries such as oil and gas, chemicals, utilities, cement and steel to collect, measure, report and verify emissions, while also evaluating different decarbonization pathways. The two global energy companies said this will help their customers manage their carbon footprints more effectively by increasing the availability and visibility of relevant data in a transparent and flexible solution.
“This collaboration represents an unprecedented opportunity for both companies to leverage digitalization to tackle one of the most critical challenges of our generation. At the same time, it would expand digital capabilities within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and harness Schlumberger’s global reach to potentially deliver a worldwide impact,” added Ahmad A. Al-Sa’adi, senior vice president of technical services at Aramco, in the Schlumberger release.
Building on an open architecture, the platform will be extendable into other aspects of the industries’ sustainability efforts, both current and future, according to the release. Ultimately, the platform will include workflows such as water sustainability and management, methane emissions measurement, flaring reduction and prevention, and carbon capture and storage.
