Dril-Quip Sets Decarbonization Targets

Dril-Quip Sets Decarbonization Targets
Dril-Quip has set its decarbonization targets to align with a 1.5°C global warming pathway and the ambitions of the Paris Agreement.

U.S. offshore drilling and production equipment manufacturer Dril-Quip has set its decarbonization targets to align with a 1.5°C global warming pathway and the ambitions of the Paris Agreement, which seeks to limit global warming to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels.

Dril-Quip is targeting the reduction of its combined Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by more than 50 percent between 2021 and the target year 2030.

Decarbonization actions include switching to renewable electricity at certain manufacturing sites, rightsizing facilities, investing in infrastructure to reduce emissions, reducing vehicle fleet, and evaluating electrification opportunities.

Dril-Quip is not only committed to driving environmental stewardship throughout its organization but also through the broader energy industry. More than an estimated 75 percent of Dril-Quip's Scope 3 emissions are attributable to machinery, products, and services purchased by Dril-Quip and the use of Dril-Quip’s equipment leased by customers.

Because of this, Dril-Quip is working closely with suppliers and customers to find avenues to decarbonize their operations further and help them set their targets aligned with the 1.5°C global warming pathway to reduce emissions across the entire value chain.

Dril-Quip is engaging with key suppliers to reduce upstream emissions in sourcing activity to help them reduce their carbon footprint and commit to long-term GHG emission targets. The Company is also partnering with customers to develop engineered solutions to reduce emissions during product fitting and installation by aligning their solutions with their long-term decarbonization goals.

“We are proud to take these additional steps on our ESG journey, particularly establishing decarbonization targets to align with a 1.5°C global warming pathway. I am thankful for the efforts of our internal team members and advisors who assisted in assessing our carbon footprint and identifying actions to reduce our emissions and who have worked with other parties in our supply and delivery chain to reduce emissions,” Jeff Bird, Dril-Quip's Chief Executive Officer, said.

“Additionally, Dril-Quip continues investing in technologies and services that reduce carbon and environmental impact through both internal R&D efforts and collaborations. This is evidenced by our innovative e-Series products that help our customers reduce their carbon footprint, and our recently announced collaboration with Aker Solutions to provide an optimal carbon capture, utilization, and storage solution for customers,” he added.
