Full Agenda

London
The Geological Society

The oil and gas industry is under pressure to demonstrate that the methane leaks from gas wells and processing facilities are low – in order to show that electricity from gas generation is better in global warming terms than electricity from coal. Environmental groups have been claiming that methane leaks are so big it is scarcely better.

Measuring methane emissions from an entire facility is very hard because it involves either finding, assessing every leak (including guessing when the leak started), or analysing methane in the air above the whole facility by satellite or laser (which also leads to more questions).

But the task proves a great match for the oil and gas geophysicist’s skillset, including physics understanding of how the various sensors work and what they tell you (sniffer, ultrasonic, gas imaging, different types of laser), the ability to put data together to create a facility-wide picture using geographical positioning and data management techniques.

Also – the big one – filling in the data gaps with sensible estimates.

We’ll review some of the technological and data management methods to do this at our Nov 13 Finding Petroleum carbon forum in London.

If you are involved in running a gas well or facility and interested in getting a better picture of methane leaks (or being better able to prove that the emission level is very low), this event will provide you with an opportunity to understand the various methods, what they can offer, how their data contributes to an overall picture.

This event could also provide a geophysicist with a new consulting avenue, helping companies prove low emission levels.
