Harbour Energy has signed up to the World Bank’s ‘Zero Routine Flaring by 2030’ initiative.
The scheme brings governments, oil companies and NGOs together to work to eliminate routine flaring no later than 2030.
Harbour Energy said it was taking steps to become net zero for scope one and two emissions by 2035.
Initiatives include upgrades to gas turbines, reducing fuel and power consumption, exploring options for low or zero carbon energy to power platforms and exploring opportunities for CO2 capture and storage.
Harbour Energy said it would continue to report emissions, including a breakdown of flaring, on an annual basis.
Chief executive Linda Cook said: “Our purpose is to play a significant role in meeting the world’s energy needs through the safe and efficient production of hydrocarbons, while creating value for our shareholders.
“By endorsing this important initiative, we are reinforcing our commitment to responsible operations as we target net zero emissions by 2035.”
