Our EverGreen™ suite of environmental solutions reinforces our longstanding commitment to operating efficiently and with environmental stewardship dating back to the 1990’s when we ran our first grid powered drilling rig. Precision recognizes the importance on driving towards net zero and the necessity of a global energy transition, and we are highly motivated to execute our vital role in the energy value chain with the lowest possible environment impact.
Current fuel consumption and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions tracking practices at the wellsite are inaccurate and do not provide granularity necessary to quantify the emissions of a drilling rig nor does it deliver an accurate baseline to apply or quantify carbon footprint reductions.
Precision’s EverGreen™ solution utilizes the latest sensor technology and a local data hub to aggregate data and transmits to the Precision Cloud, enabling real-time monitoring and a digital data set.
Sensors Measure fuel consumption at the generator intake and digitally transforms into real-time visualization of GHG emissions.
Leverage Alpha™ technologies to integrate power consumption to assess how engine load, engine configuration and well design affect energy consumption. Sensors can also be added to fuel tanks, boilers and other ancillary equipment for a comprehensive well construction environmental footprint.
NATURAL GAS SENSORS
Natural gas meters are installed at the engine complex and to the boilers to track bulk natural gas volumes.
Positive displacement flow meters are installed on individual engines and boilers. Fuel sensors are installed on the fuel tank eliminating the need to calculate fuel inventory from delivery invoices and manual tank measurements.
Leveraging Precision’s Alpha™ technologies allows us to layer in power consumption by operating classification (drilling, tripping, casing, etc.) to analyze how load, engine configuration and well design affect GHG emissions. Power data from Battery Energy Storage Systems can also be aggregated into the digital dataset.
With newly designed and digitally enabled drilling rigs, access to oilfield data and analytical tools, technological and process improvements have decreased drilling time and increased efficiency tremendously over the past decade. Highly efficient and faster wells undoubtedly reduce drilling GHG emissions, the next step change in emissions reductions is through onsite power generation, displacing diesel fuel as the primary fuel source for drilling operations.

Dynamic Gas Blending (DGB)
Automatically adjusts to changes in incoming fuel quality and pressure allowing your engines to run on a wide variety of fuels, from associated gas to gasified LNG.
A local data hub aggregates sensor and power data and transmits to the Precision Cloud, enabling real-time monitoring and a digital data set.
Integrated Natural Gas Generators
Natural gas engines designed for maximum performance on low pressure pipeline gas with leading edge technology for lower emissions and improved engine efficiency.
Smart Engine Management (SEMS)
SEMS works by continuously monitoring rig power demand and transient spikes versus available engine power. Depending on the power demand and availability, engines are added or dropped automatically for efficient operation.
Grid-tie technology allows the rig to accept high-voltage line power from a utility provider or local power generation station. Optional micro grid generation capabilities available.
LED Rig Lighting
Designed to reduce industry emissions by displacing conventional standalone diesel-powered light towers and increase visual acuity during 24-hour operations.
Battery Energy Storage System (BESS)
Smart battery bank purposed to handle large transient rig loads from generators. Battery backup can double as a temporary engine replacement, allowing one less engine to be online.
THE SOLUTION -
THE CHALLENGE -
Hydrogen will play a key role in reducing wellsite GHG emissions and we are currently exploring technologies and partnerships in this area. Hydrogen technologies, such as fuel cells that convert hydrogen into a clean and efficient source of electricity or blending green hydrogen into existing diesel or natural gas generators, will increase efficiency and reduce GHG emissions.
Current fuel consumption and GHG emissions tracking practices are inaccurate and do not provide granularity necessary to quantify drilling emissions nor does it deliver an accurate baseline to apply or quantify carbon footprint reductions. Precision’s cloud-based solution that utilizes the latest sensor technology to monitor fuel consumption (diesel and natural gas), power generation KPIs, and GHG emissions in real time.
The energy consumed in oil and gas drilling operations is one of the largest cost and emissions drivers for our customers. This creates a natural alignment to work together to minimize environmental impact. Our EverGreenEnergy™ offerings are centered around displacing diesel fuel as the primary fuel source for drilling operations.
