Calgary, Alberta – Kelt Exploration Ltd. (TSX: KEL) (“Kelt” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the release of its inaugural ESG Report, dated January 7, 2021, as part of its ongoing commitment to health and safety, responsible and sustainable resource development, good governance practices and community engagement.
The ESG Report highlights many of the Company’s achievements, including a 25% reduction in injury-related incidents in 2019, compared to the previous year; a 25% reduction in carbon emissions by switching the fuel source for drilling and frac operations to displace carbon-intensive diesel; limiting gas flaring from newly drilled wells; capturing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by using vapor recovery units that direct tank vapors into a natural gas sales line; and construction of low GHG emission well site facilities by replacing higher methane emission natural gas-driven pneumatic pumps with electric-powered pumps and installing solar panels on-site to provide a zero-emission renewable energy source.
