Crew is committed to reducing our emissions. From local contaminants such as NOx, SOx, VOC, and particulate matter (“PM”), to GHG emissions, which contribute to global climate change, Crew is taking concrete actions to reduce and eliminate our emissions.
A reduction in the use of diesel is key to reducing GHGs, SO2, and NOx emissions. Please refer to the GHG emission strategy section to learn more about Crew’s initiatives to use bi-fuel frac pumps and boilers.
Crew has also seen a reduction in flaring since 2017, which supports the reduction in SO2 emissions. The main drivers for the decrease include reduced venting, fugitive emissions monitoring and leak repair, and use of bi-fuel (natural gas) instead of diesel as fuel for drilling and completions operations.
Crew has reduced air contaminants by 70% since 2017 on an overall tonnage basis.
As a fundamental principle, the quality of air we breathe must be kept free from as many contaminants as possible. Crew has taken significant steps to minimize these contaminants, focusing to primarily reduce NOx, SOx, volatile organic compounds (“VOCs”), and particulate matter (“PM”).
