Enhancing Sustainability of Mature Oil and Gas Fields

XP launched its latest Sustainability Report, detailing the achievements in enhancing the sustainability of mature oil and gas fields.

In 2023, XP issued the first Methane Emissions Report for its 2022 activity based on OGMP level 2 guidelines, together with a comprehensive 4-year roadmap aimed at achieving the highest levels of accuracy and accountability under the OGMP framework and an aggressive reduction target of reaching 0.20% methane intensity in 2025. This work was honoured by OGMP (Oil & Gas Methane Partnership) with a Gold Standard, reflecting the commitment to achieving the highest level in methane emissions monitoring. Building on this, XP’s 2023 report adopts OGMP level 3 guidelines, enhancing the accuracy of the emissions inventory and enabling to address more leaks effectively.

Another important contribution in mitigating Climate Change is reducing the energy intensity of the company’s own operations. In 2023 XP had a further improvement of 12% in Energy Intensity compared to 2022. Also, in the last 10 years XP has reduced the Energy intensity of its operations by more than 85%.
