Cenovus Energy Inc. is a Canadian integrated oil company. Operations include oil sands projects in northern Alberta, which use specialized methods to drill and pump the oil to the surface, and established natural gas and oil production in Alberta and Saskatchewan.
Cenovus staff identified two technologies that could be used in their operations to increase energy efficiency and reduce methane emissions. The energy efficiency project involved installing two distinct efficiency technologies in select gas compressor sites across Alberta: the REMVue air/fuel ratio controllers and the Slipstream vent-gas injection controller. Combined, the technologies significantly reduce fuel usage, natural gas and GHG emissions.
