New Technologies for Flaring Elimination & Methane Emissions Measurement

Course Credit: 0.15 CEU, 1.5 PDH

This webinar will discuss the current state of two key technologies for oilfield methane management—flaring elimination and remote sensing. The regulatory and business implications of these technology developments will be discussed from both the Operators and Regulators perspectives.

New flaring reduction technologies that are more efficient and cost-effective—such as incineration, gas injection, and on-site power generation—promise dramatic reductions in waste gas emissions from oil and gas production.
How can Operators & Regulators facilitate and encourage the adoption of improved or new technologies?
Could collaborative efforts reduce the unit costs & accelerate adoption?
How should we manage the rollout of such technologies?
Remote monitoring and measurement of methane emissions via satellite, aerial, and site-based equipment promise improved leak detection, real-time emissions monitoring, and more accurate quantification of methane emissions.
What are the current technological limitations (e.g. accuracy, resolution)?
How can these new technologies be deployed for more effective, accurate reporting? How will these new tools fit with—or replace—current standards for testing/monitoring (e.g. EPA NSP Standards)?
