Ecopetrol CEO Felipe Bayón told Energy Analytics Institute (EAI) in Houston, Texas during CERAWeek by S&P Global that his co. has “pledged to have net zero CO2 emissions by 2050, reduce emissions 100% for Scope 1 and 2 and 50% for Scope 3.” The executive added that Ecopetrol was “already reducing flaring and venting and was working with fugitive emissions… the use of technology and ensuring that from an operations point of view, people say, wow, this is relevant.” By YE:21, Ecopetrol closed north of 700 identified leaking sources in the operation. “The good news is you know where to go, and you go and do it, you deal with it. And at the end of the day, it’s gas that instead of going into the atmosphere stays in the pipeline and you can sell it or you can use it,” Bayón concluded.
