Emissions critical: Flaring, methane, and the cost of looming Permian gas takeaway constraints
In recent years, the combination of slower production growth and the in-service of major gas pipeline projects have kept Permian flaring in check. However, current rig counts now signal a pace of production growth that may exceed gas takeaway capacity at times in the coming years.
Meanwhile, ongoing gas takeaway expansion projects and a new pipeline will not come soon enough to avoid increased flaring, sharper deceleration in supply growth, or both. In a new report, industry experts from Validere and East Daley Analytics take a closer look at flaring, methane, and the cost of looming Permian gas midstream constraints, including:
- Production, pipelines, processing, and flaring expectations in the Permian through 2026
- Methane emissions risks as gas bottlenecks drive increased flaring
- How operators can catch flaring issues and methane risks before third parties do
