How Submetering Can Benefit The Oil and Gas Industry

 June 5, 2018  9:54 AM

While submetering is traditionally used for mixed-use residential and business high-rises, or large blocks of commercial businesses, managed under a single property manager, there’s an important Albertan industry that is rarely in the same conversation as submetering, but could heavily benefit from it: the oil and gas industry.

Cost Control in Oil and Gas

At any resource meter, including electric, gas, water, and thermal, Hamdon Submetering is able to track, evaluate and provide a detailed report about usage. This could benefit the oil and gas industry in a variety of ways, but probably the most appealing, and most readily evident, would be the cost savings. Whether you’re metering, tracking, and evaluating the energy usage at your well sites, individual tenants at a northern work camp, or an office building in Calgary or Edmonton, there’s an opportunity to see where you’re being inefficient with your energy usage and improve it.

“If sub-metering were deployed in all currently bulk-metered, multi-residential buildings the annual potential electricity savings following complete deployment over five years could be 3.3 terawatt-hours annually – more than all of the electricity produced from Ontario’s wind power facilities in 2010,” according to one study.

Stand Out From The Pack With Corporate Responsibility

In the corporate world, image is an increasingly important factor, and in an industry like oil and gas, there’s a perceived notion that most companies do not care about the environment, which simply isn’t true. However, proving it to the general population, if you’re not tracking and evaluating where your energy is going, is hard to do. Submetering allows visibility into how and when energy is consumed, resulting in reduced energy usage and a lower environmental impact.
