Department Winner: Safaniyah Onshore Producing Department
Department recognized for saving energy while maintaining production.
Significant energy savings — while still maintaining production levels — characterized the performance achieved by the Safaniyah Onshore Producing Department.
Included in their 2020 scorecard was a 2% improvement in overall energy intensity, a 20% average monthly power consumption drop against 2019 levels, and a 9% reduction in fuel gas consumption.
The Safinyah onshore facility is designed to operate with all furnaces running, however, with the 2020 decrease in production demand, different heat and materials balance combinations were investigated, which resulted in two furnaces being switched off for a combined 250 days, saving 215 MMBtu/h of energy during the course of the year.
