Explore the methane detection and quantification technology filtering tool
Welcome to the methane detection and quantification technology filtering tool – your comprehensive resource for mitigating methane emissions. Developed by the International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (IOGP), OGCI, and Ipieca, this online technology filtering tool features detailed technology data sheets covering over 50 technologies, and decision trees to guide technology deployment.
We have released this database tool, and a recommended practices guide, to help operators select and deploy methane detection and quantification technologies.
The three organizations collaborated on the project having recognized that eliminating methane emissions from the upstream oil and gas industry represents one of the best short-term opportunities for contributing to climate change mitigation and for advancing the goals of the Paris Agreement.
IOGP-Ipieca-OGCI Report 661 – Recommended practices for methane emissions detection and quantification technologies – upstream explains the criteria that oil and gas operating companies should consider in selecting technology, guidance on technology deployment, and examples of operators’ experiences with different technology combinations.
✅ Comprehensive database: Access a vast collection of methane emission reduction technologies, solutions, and practices from around the world.
✅ Advanced filters: Easily find the right technology for your industry and specific needs using filters like area characteristics, aim of deployment, and operator preferences.
✅ Detailed profiles: Each technology is accompanied by a detailed data sheet.
✅ Real-world impact: Each technology can make a positive impact by reducing methane emissions in various applications.
How to use the methane detection and quantification technology filtering tool
- Select preliminary preferences
The goal of step 1 is to filter technologies based on preliminary aspects, crucial for the operator to consider while filtering suitable technologies
- Select area characteristics
In step 2, it is crucial to understand the facilities area and location – such as usual cloud coverage, precipitation and so on. The technologies will be filtered based on their suitability in different weather conditions.
- Aim of deployment
In step 3, technologies are filtered based on the operators aim for deployment. Technologies vary in their detection and quantification characteristics, which are filtered in this step
- Finalizing technology aspects
In step 4, operators can refine the technology characteristics and select the level of some criteria selected in step 3.
- Access the detailed technology datasheets
For the final step, choose a technology from the list of detailed technology datasheets
Working together for methane reduction
The methane detection and quantification technology filtering tool is a collaborative effort by IOGP, OGCI, and Ipieca to collectively make a significant impact on methane emissions.
