WATCH: Fugitive emissions

Meeting the challenge

In its unburnt form, raw methane is 45 times more greenhouse gas intensive than when burnt. This is a serious and growing concern for the oil and gas industry, particularly with the growth and popularity of natural gas in recent years. Understanding where gas leaks are occurring, and being able to see and quantify them, is a growing challenge for operators. Until now, methods of detecting and measuring fugitive emissions have been based on gas concentrations, which is a qualitative and costly approach. Utilizing the latest artificial intelligence and object recognition technology, tech company Advisian Digital’s fugitive emissions platform provides a more accurate and quantifiable option for leak identification and monitoring, helping minimize loss of production, reduce total emissions costs, prioritize leak repairs and ensure regulatory compliance.
