A new partnership between Fluenta and SEGITEC will potentially help North African operators reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions

Fluenta, which provides ultrasonic sensing technology to measure flare gas, has been appointed official distributor for SEGITEC, a North Africa-focused integrator of control and instrumentation solutions. Fluenta's solutions and SEGITEC's established distribution network in North Africa will facilitate accurate and reliable flare gas measurement for operators, which is essential for emissions control, demonstrating environmental commitment, complying with regulatory requirements and ensuring safety.

Emissions reduction priority

Reducing emissions and minimising environmental impact are top priorities for oil, gas and petrochemicals companies worldwide. In North Africa, Algeria has committed to reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 22% by 2030, Tunisia has set a conditional emissions reduction target of 45% below 2010 levels by 2030, and Gabon is aiming for a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2025. More than 50 oil and gas companies committed to ending routine flaring by 2030 at COP28, as well as to increasing transparency on GHG emissions.

Julian Dudley-Smith, Fluenta 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."

Omar Ben Ayed, SEGITEC's CEO, said, "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."

SEGITEC and Fluenta will be showcasing at this year’s NAPEC event on 14-16 October in Algeria.
