BEACH ENERGY IS COMMITTED TO REDUCING ITS EMISSIONS
Beach Energy has an aspiration to reach net zero emissions by 2050. As part of that aspiration, Beach is taking steps to reduce Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 25% by 2025, on 2018 levels.
This target will be achieved through several projects that reduce flaring, fugitive emissions, improve energy efficiency and incorporate renewable energy at Beach facilities.
Beach is also a participant in the proposed Moomba Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) project, where with operator Santos we continue to progress the planning phases for this potentially nation-leading initiative.
As at the end of FY21 Beach’s emissions were down ~12% on FY18.
PROJECTS TO ACHIEVE OUR EMISSIONS REDUCTION GOALs
The Bauer Hybrid Renewable Project will deliver energy supply to the field through a combination of Wind, Solar, Battery and Diesel generation.
A number of Fuel Flare and Vent Management initiatives have been undertaken at Beach’s gas plants, including the installation of a Mercury Removal Facility at the Otway Gas Plant, new start-up procedures at Bass Gas, and efficiency initiatives at Kupe.
The Leak Detection and Repair initiative was expanded to include all Beach gas assets. This project monitors gas infrastructure to identify fugitive methane leak sources.
