Environmental, Social, and Governance

PAXON’s Research and Development department is heavily focused on successfully collaborating with utilities and gas operators in designing and executing tangible solutions to capture carbon during project execution, so it can be recycled and reused and, most importantly, kept out of the atmosphere. As Such, Paxon Partners with clients to help them meet their ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) goals by Providing CROSS COMPRESSION or CARBON CAPTURE services during NATURAL GAS pipeline repairs, installations, maintenance, and integrity testing procedures.

 

What is Carbon Capture or Cross Compression? Cross Compression or Recompression is an innovative method that eliminates methane emissions that otherwise would have been vented, flared, or blown down into the atmosphere during pipeline installation, repair, or other integrity management related activities. Paxon’s sustainable innovative technologies equips the energy companies with new methods that eliminates their methane footprint of voluntary release from natural gas pipelines.

 

How does it work? Paxon’s operating procedures are tested with proven technologies that allow for capturing methane at large scales. Our recompression system has the capability of moving gas safely from one pipeline (Recompression) and then (Compression) to another gas pipeline WITHOUT the need to vent into the atmosphere; thus resulting in

 

  • 99% quality gas recovered from the atmosphere
  • Minimum greenhouse gases (Methane) emissions
  • Minimum spark hazards at work site
  • Prevents flammable / explosive fuel-air cloud formation
  • Significant Environmental Stewardship to the community

Project Applications

How does this help the energy companies achieve their ESG goals? By reducing and/or eliminating methane emissions at mass scales, Paxon and its clients are directly affecting the people, communities, and the environment. since 2018, PAXON has helped recover 16 million standard Cubic feet of methane during natural gas pipeline maintenance projects through utilizing of its innovative Zero Emissions recompression technologies.

 

This innovation is a significant step in controlled gas recovery to avoid emitting methane (CH4) into the atmosphere. Climate experts believe that reducing methane emissions will yield immediate benefits to the climate. As a result, the policy makers (i.e. the EPA, has proposed a rule that would require the regulations of hundreds of thousands of existing methane emissions sources for the pipeline industry).  PAXON’s R&D department has been recognized as a trendsetter in the oil and gas industry and has received numerous awards and recognitions for its work.
