Petromall Insights Sept 18: Managing methane leaks in oil and gas

September 2018

The oil and gas industry is under pressure to demonstrate that the methane emissions from its operations are low, amid claims
that methane leaks are so high that gas is barely better than coal for power generation. But providing a solid number is very
difficult and expensive to do.

This issue of Petromall Insights looks at the various technologies and methods available to quantify methane emissions from a facility, from detectors of gas molecules to laser systems which monitor an entire facility at once. As you might expect, they come with strengths and weaknesses - in cost and coverage

  • Measuring individual leaks vs overall emissions
  • Quick sensors overview
  • Ultrasonic gas leak detectors
  • Quantitative optical gas imaging
  • Laser scanning for methane by drone
  • Laser scanning via DIAL
