Reducing methane emissions in oil and gas operations is an important way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Advances in technology can help detect and identify the sources, and improve the ability to respond quickly. But there’s no one-size-fits-all solution.
That’s why ExxonMobil is leading testing for the most promising next-generation methane detection technologies, such as those at 1,000 sites in Texas and New Mexico, with the aim of identifying effective, scalable solutions.
Here’s a look at what ExxonMobil is working on – from outer space to on the ground – as well as providing a roadmap for the industry to zero in on and stop methane leaks and reduce emissions.
