To reduce greenhouse gas emissions, society needs to switch from fossil fuel energy to alternative forms. In 2020, only 17% of the world’s energy came from non-fossil sources, 31% came from oil, 25% from gas, and 27% from coal. At 56% of the energy mix, oil and gas are still essential. Whilst oil and coal use are in decline, gas use is trending up.
Gas is the cleanest burning fossil fuel, but with the increase in use comes the risk of methane leaks in production and storage wells. Since methane is 80x more potent as a greenhouse gas than CO2, the integrity of producing and storage wells is essential in enabling cleaner energy solutions. Used proactively, TGT’s True Integrity diagnostics can be used routinely to validate seals in gas producing and storage wells, and assure methane containment.
