Innovations provider Fluenta has partnered with control and instrumentation solutions integrator SEGITEC to introduce its ultrasonic sensing technology for flare gas control to operators from North Africa

With a well-established presence in the North African market, the deal makes SEGITEC the region's official distributor of Fluenta's services. Fluenta's advanced flare management services have been installed in Nigeria's Dangote Refinery as well

"We are excited to partner with Fluenta, a company that shares our vision for a sustainable future," said Omar Ben Ayed, SEGITEC's CEO. "This partnership is a significant milestone, as it allows us to offer energy companies in North Africa and Gabon the best-in-class solutions to meet tightening environmental standards. Together, we are committed to empowering the region's oil, gas, and petrochemical industries to achieve their environmental goals while maintaining operational excellence."

Supporting operators

In line with the Paris Agreement, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and minimising environmental impact are top priorities for petrochemical and oil and gas companies, and flare management forms a significant part of it. Majors such as BakerHughes and bp had introduced the flare.IQ technology earlier this year to monitor emissions from flares

Algeria has committed to reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 22% by 2030, Tunisia increased its ambition in the revised National Determined Contribution (NDC) by setting a conditional emissions reduction target of 45% below 2010 levels by 2030, and Gabon included a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2025. 

Fluenta's technology is capable of further complementing these goals with its real-time data configuration for prompt identification and action to block emmissions. It supports operators with regulatory compliance, operational optimisation, and safety. 

Julian Dudley-SmithFluenta managing director said, "Fluenta's mission to help operators comply with environmental regulations is complemented by SEGITEC's expertise in providing value-added services, which include project management, engineering, commissioning, operations, and maintenance. The partnership will support operators' decarbonisation plans, enhance environmental credentials, and ensure compliance with regulations and safety standards."

SEGITEC and Fluenta will be displaying at NAPEC 2024 from 14-16 October in Algeria.
