Shale oil producer partners with Environmental intelligence platform
A new contract will connect the world’s largest shale oil producer with a real-time environmental technology platform, designed to help emissions forecasting and lessen environmental impacts.
Environmental intelligence technology company Envirosuite Limited (Envirosuite) will be deploying its Industrial environmental intelligence platform Omnis under a three-year contract to Viru Keemia Grupp (VKG).
As a market leader, VKG has prioritised environmental stewardship and integrated it directly into its processes. VKG said it is continuously committed to responsible, sustainable and efficient operations that work transparently with nearby communities.
Omnis will be deployed at VKG’s facility near Kohtla-Järve in Estonia. The platform will provide VKG with an integrated real-time and forecasting air quality system. Operators will be empowered with situational awareness of their emissions both inside and outside their facility, allowing them to optimise operations to mitigate emissions risks.
Users at the facility will be able to pinpoint emissions events with a high degree of confidence to take prompt mitigation action when necessary. Hyperlocal weather and emissions forecasts will also enhance operational planning at VKG’s facility by empowering their team to identify low-risk windows and schedule activities with minimum impact.
Martin Sikk, Safety and Environmental Manager of the Group’s subsidiary VKG Oil, said that an integrated environmental intelligence platform is another step towards improving the Group´s efforts and commitment to reduce environmental impacts, particularly odour, on the local community.
“As a large industrial company, one of our goals is to minimise possible environmental impacts and continuously improve air quality in the nearby areas.
“Envirosuite’s Omnis platform will be the heart of the Group’s air quality monitoring network. We believe that Omnis will provide us with the tools to gain actionable real-time information, including modelling and forecasting of air quality in our production area and in the local community, to better analyse our impact and plan the day-to-day operations of our production facilities, which will help us improve environmental performance.”
Jason Cooper, Envirosuite CEO said, “We are excited to collaborate with Viru Keemia Grupp in their dedication to sustainability. Our team has made significant advancements in Omnis to provide unparalleled accuracy in our powerful modelling engine.
“This particularly enhances our hyperlocal meteorology and odour forecasting capabilities. The team at VKG will be able to understand how weather affects their operations at a high resolution, but also proactively manage their air quality impact and remain responsible neighbours to their community.
“It always makes us proud to see companies like VKG utilising Omnis to minimise their environmental impact and showcase responsible, effective operations.”
