Quantification protocol for greenhouse gas emission reductions from pneumatic devices (version 2.0)

Description

This quantification protocol is written for the oil and gas industry where natural gas is used to provide pneumatic power for automated process control and operational devices. Some familiarity and understanding of gas and/or oil production operations and pneumatic devices is required. Oil and gas wells and processing facilities often use pneumatic power for operational devices and process controls. Pneumatic devices may be powered by compressed air, natural gas or propane. Propane is typically delivered to site by truck and compressed air requires the installation of a compressed air system. Readily available pressurized natural gas is always on site and this has made it a very common pneumatic power source in industry. Devices that may be powered by natural gas include pressure controllers, temperature controllers, transducers, liquid level controllers, flow rate regulators and chemical pumps.
