Oil & Gas Emissions Monitoring

Between vents, continuous emissions, flares and fugitive leaks, the worldwide oil and gas industry is estimated to have emitted around 82 million tonnes of methane in 20191. While this figure is huge, it also presents major opportunities for emissions reduction, and many oil and gas majors are pledging to focus on methane as part of achieving Net Zero targets by the middle of the decade.

To effectively mitigate emissions from oil and gas processing facilities, operators need more effective information than that provided by slow, labour-intensive, intermittent surveys. A continuous solution that not only informs of leaks as they occur, but quantifies the size and scale of individual emissions as part of an accurate methane budget, will enable compliance with monitoring standards, and measurable demonstration of emissions reduction.

The quantum gas camera from QLM is the only solution that offers this in an industrially scalable, affordable package.
