For more than twenty years, Emisoft has been meeting the needs of one of the world’s most carbon-efficient oil and gas producers.
On the sustainability page of their website, Statoil boldly asks “Can an oil and gas company be part of a sustainable energy future?” Clearly, they believe the answer is yes. Every element of production and innovation at the Norway-based energy producing company is designed and executed with an eye on sustainability—and Emisoft has been helping Statoil to manage and report on their environmental performance since 1993.
Norway introduced its carbon tax in 1991, becoming one of the first countries to do so and affecting both upstream production and the cost of producing oil and gas. The following year, laboratory testing of chemicals used in offshore energy production became a requirement for upstream of oil and gas companies. Like most companies, Statoil relied on a complex system of linked spreadsheets to comply with regulations and monitor environmental performance.
They recognised that Emisoft could provide a more robust and efficient system.
Written as part of the Emisoft rebranding project, this case study highlights the close, long-standing partnership between Emisoft and Statoil (known today as Equinor), Norway’s primary oil and gas producer, with a particular focus on how Emisoft’s advanced solution for environmental reporting has helped keep Statoil at the top of list of the world’s most sustainable producers.
