Schlumberger Launches Dedicated Business to Eliminate Oil and Gas Industry’s Methane and Routine Flare Emissions
Schlumberger announced today the launch of Schlumberger End-to-end Emissions Solutions (SEES). The business offers a comprehensive set of services and cutting-edge technologies designed to give operators a robust and scalable solution for measuring, monitoring, reporting and, ultimately, eliminating methane and routine flare emissions from their operations. SEES launches at a critical time in the industry—today we witnessed leadership from Oil and Gas Climate Initiative (OGCI) members who announced their aim for zero methane gas emissions in oil and gas operations by 2030. Methane and flare emissions currently account for more than 60% of direct (Scope 1 and 2) greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the industry.
Schlumberger Chief Technology Officer Demos Pafitis commented: “We have created SEES specifically to help our customers deal with one of the most pressing issues of climate change: the urgent need to cut methane emissions. Due to its potency as a GHG and its major share of the industry’s overall operational emissions, tackling methane emissions will make a significant impact.”
As energy companies seek to operate in a more sustainable manner, they will need to more reliably report and reduce their methane emissions and flaring activity. Currently, when looking for answers and partners to address this challenge, they are faced with a patchwork of disparate offerings—SEES changes that.
SEES delivers a holistic approach to enable operators to develop a successful methane emissions elimination strategy from the outset. The approach builds on three pillars—plan, measure, and act—that are all underpinned by the industry’s first methane emissions digital platform, accessible in the DELFI* cognitive E&P environment, to provide a comprehensive and differentiated path for operators to achieve their decarbonization objectives:
- Plan: Schlumberger screens a wide array of measurement and abatement solutions to identify the most cost-effective technology mix for any operator’s specific assets.
- Measure: Schlumberger uniquely provides operators access to the full range of curated, best-in-class third party and in-house solutions, after rigorous evaluation of 97 methane measurement technologies.
- Act: Though other service providers can inform an operator where emissions are occurring, Schlumberger—through its end-to-end offering—first finds the emissions and then takes remedial action to eliminate them.
In addition, robust data and a digital foundation will enable customers to have a secure, reliable single place for integrating multi-source emissions data with advice, plans and insights.
Kahina Abdeli-Galinier, Schlumberger emissions business director, commented: “The urgency of methane and flare challenges means emission detection, measurement, reporting and abatement approaches need to mature rapidly. To benefit the industry, SEES aspires to become the trusted partner for operators looking to reduce their emissions footprint quickly, credibly, and in the right way. To benefit the planet, our objective is to work with our customers to eliminate 1% of all anthropogenic GHG emissions by 2030.”
SEES combines Schlumberger’s extensive measurement and planning experience with the ability to assess and implement emerging technology, foundational data, AI, and digital capabilities, and the means to scale and deploy anywhere in the world. The business has also developed extensive knowledge and expertise in international reporting and certification standards related to GHG emissions. Recent customer engagements include building a digital platform to support a multi-sensor, multi-operator monitoring program, and entering into a consulting contract with an IOC to enable them to comply with the Oil and Gas Methane Partnership (OGMP) 2.0 framework for methane.

Emendo Biotherapeutics’ next generation CRISPR gene editing technologies achieve breakthrough results with allele-specific approach for ELANE -related Severe Congenital Neutropenia as presented at ASGCT Annual Meeting17.5.2022 22:15:00 CEST | Press release
Emendo Biotherapeutics presented the results of its next generation CRISPR-based gene editing approaches for several indications in an oral presentation and three posters at the 25th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy (ASGCT) held May 16-19, 2022, in Washington, D.C. Emendo presented pre-clinical data for the treatment of ELANE-related Severe Congenital Neutropenia using an allele-specific editing approach, demonstrating the power of Emendo’s dual technology platforms that enable the development of a highly specific editing composition that demonstrates no off-targets and complete allele specificity. Significantly, the lack of off-target achieved by Emendo’s engineered and optimized OMNI nuclease also eliminated any translocations. Edited patient derived CD34+ cells differentiated normally into neutrophils both in-vitro and in-vivo, showing full engraftment and reconstitution of all blood lineages, as required for the desired therapeutic effect. “ELANE-based
