Decarbonizing the Energy Industry


We are committed to developing new paradigms using artificial intelligence and robotics products that increase profits and lower the carbon footprint of existing and future operations.

A major energy transition from dependence on fossil fuels to other, lower-carbon forms of energy is underway but will take many decades. There is intense pressure, from consumers, governments, activists, and others, to wean the world of its fossil fuel dependence to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that are said to contribute to global warming. This has led in some cases to advocate dramatic shifts away from fossil fuels in favor of carbon-free renewable energy (mainly wind and solar). In turn, this will require some restructuring within the hydrocarbon industry itself as executive management working with their boards of directors seek to find a transition path.

Despite these transition pressures, the mainstream prognosis suggests that driven by population and economic growth and the relentless pursuit of prosperity in developing countries, the demand for hydrocarbon fuels will, of necessity, continue to grow. With the continuing reliance on fossil fuels, there will be no less a demand that Oil and Gas companies make every effort to reduce the carbon footprint of their operations. To do so will require paradigm shifts in operational performance and applications of technology that were looked upon as “out of the box” but are now within the realm of possibility.

Illustration of IMARC Robotics Impact on Carbon Footprint


For the purposes of illustrating a typical example of carbon footprint reduction (i.e. measured in absolute emissions) that could be achieved by IMARC Robotics technology, a comparison has been made of the processes involved in a typical CONVENTIONAL offshore slickline sleeve shifting operation, using a BP Platform as the case study.

Based on current methods such an operation would typically involve some twenty distinct processes or events in getting the job done, each of which will involve a certain amount of (mostly diesel-based) carbon emissions. These process events are estimated to collectively result in about 69,000 Lbs of carbon emissions.

In comparison to the methods used today, IMARC Robotic technologies achieve the same sleeve-shifting operation on the same BP platform using only nine process events, whose cumulative emissions would likely be no greater than some 4,400 Lbs of carbon. That is more than a 15-fold decrease in the footprint.

Moreover, along with these benefits would come also substantial savings in both time and safety. It is clear that IMARC’s nine process events can be executed in far less time than today’s twenty processes, which implies major improvement in efficiency and substantial cost savings in fuels and labor.

Further, the switch to robotics would have huge safety improvements, bearing in mind that helicopter delivery of robots and tools directly onto the platform deck will avoid all ship-to-platform off-loading of heavy rigs and equipment which are hazardous when seas are heavy.
