Course Credit: 0.15 CEU, 1.5 PDH

Advancement in management of methane emissions, is discussed in two parts: measurement and detection technology and design-emissions-out approach to new facilities installations.

There is currently available a multitude of technology solutions capable of detecting and quantifying methane emissions emitted from facilities – and these solutions are evolving rapidly.

New energy production facilities will have to go beyond the current responsive approach to locating and fixing fugitive emissions. New facilities merit a more innovative approach in “design-emissions-out” in equipment selection and specification. This involves incremental upfront capital investments for infrastructure, such as power supply, electrification of actuators and rotating equipment, and automation.

Join our panelists and moderator as we discuss our present state of methane emissions management and exchange ideas for best future facility design practices as well as the role of the Regulators as facilitators and in leveling the playing fields.

After moving from Houston to Colorado Springs, Colorado, Jim established the Reflections Data Consulting LLC to continue his work in the area of data management and analytics for Exploration and Production industry.

Jim was a Distinguished Lecturer for the Society of Petroleum Engineers in 2010-2011, speaking on the topic of “Putting the Focus on Data.” He is a frequent speaker at SPE webinars and conferences on Digital Oilfield/Intelligent Energy and the Data Foundation. His most recent topics include “Measure what Matters” (regarding to methane emissions management) and “The Digital Oilfield” (on recent technology advances in upstream oil and gas production operations). His interests lie in the full spectrum of the information value chain from data capture, data management, data visualization (telling stories with data), data access, modeling and analytics, simulations, and cybersecurity.
