VIDEO: Innovative challenge to improve methane detection

Alberta Methane Field Challenge an opportunity for innovators to test new detection technologies to help lower oil and natural gas methane emissions.


The Alberta Methane Field Challenge is an international competition to test emerging methane detection technologies in a real-world setting. Methane is a greenhouse gas and Canadian oil and natural gas producers have committed to a 45 percent reduction in emissions at oil and gas production sites. Innovations like improvements in methane detection technologies will enable producers to meet this target.
