Greenhouse gases are those that absorb and emit radiation, thereby trapping and retaining heat in the atmosphere. The primary greenhouse gases in the Earth's atmosphere are water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and ozone.
In any industry, large trucks or heavy machinery cause greenhouse gas emission challenges, and the oil and gas industry is no exception. Trican continually looks for ways to reduce the volume and impact of emissions from our fleet of vehicles and machinery, including ensuring our vehicles are well maintained and equipped with the latest in emission reducing technology. As expected, emissions are based on fuel usage, which is directly related to activity levels.
Natural gas is by far the cleanest burning fossil fuel, so Trican is also increasingly equipping pumpers with systems capable of utilizing natural gas in addition to diesel. These dual fuel units are capable of burning up to 70% natural gas over diesel.
Trican participates in the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) program and will use the data to track our emissions and make improvements where possible. The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) is run by an organization that works with corporations around the world to disclose carbon emissions information to the public.
Trican abides by all environmental parameters set out by the jurisdictions in which we operate, whether it be by following operational regulations and guidelines, or through the purchase and use of equipment that meets environmental standards. At every opportunity, Trican selects equipment that requires less fuel and is more efficient.
