Demand for electric systems and sensors in the O&G sector is increasing to drive down methane emissions, increase well productivity and safety, and decrease maintenance costs, ADVENT’s M-ZERØ™ Family of Products aims to Drop Wellhead Methane Emissions to Zero in Well Sites.
The M-ZERØ™ family of products includes the M-ZERØ™ 50W and 150W models with plans for power levels up to 400W by 2022. The M-ZERØ™ 50-400 systems include advanced features from UltraCell’s new RMFC (Reformed Methanol Fuel Cell) technology, which allows
REDUCE METHANE EMISSIONS TO ZERO
Reduce O&G well site emissions up to 40 Mt carbon dioxide per year
The implementation of the M-ZERØ™ Advent Solution will result in fast decarbonization of the Oil & Gas industry by mitigating the methane emission problem.
Fuel cells powering 185,000 oil & gas wellheads in the US and Canada will reduce emissions of up to 40 million tons of carbon dioxide per year, which is equivalent to the carbon footprint of more than eight million passenger cars.
M-ZERØ™ is fueled by technical grade methanol, which is widely available at wellheads, being used as an anti-freeze. There is no need for expensive imported proprietary methanol blends.
Up to 10x higher efficiency than thermoelectric generators and 5x more efficient than internal combustion engine generators.
With electrification, instead of emitting methane, the methane is used to power the fuel cells, therefore emitting zero pollution into the environment.
Success in Extreme Conditions
Based on a military-specified design, the M-ZERØ™ can be quickly transported and deployed wherever necessary, including under rough oil and natural gas field conditions.
Significantly Lower Total Cost of Ownership than that of Thermoelectric Generators
50%+ savings at scale due to lower fuel costs (including 90% fuel savings relative to thermoelectric generators), lower installation costs and reduced maintenance costs.
10x less greenhouse gas emitted vs. traditional combustion generators, including zero nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides and particulate emissions.
Compelling Financial Model
50%+ product gross margins at scale.
A Tested Solution
Executed agreements to trial 18 50W systems In Alberta, Canada with oil & gas majors.
Works seamlessly in parallel with solar panels, providing wellhead power during low solar load northern winters and/or bad weather.
