Quantification of total site emissions from a natural gas facility in Spain

By August 5, 2023February 6th, 2024News

In August 2023, our partner ReSource Sweden was sent for the second time to Spain for a methane quantification project for a high-profile customer. This a great news for GASTRAQ, as we have now deployed the method in most European countries (from Iceland to Spain to Hungary).

Despite many years of evidence in the scientific community, very little care has been taken to tackle fugitive site emissions in the oil and gas industry. As a consequence of global initiatives such as Oil and Gas Methane Partnership 2.0 and IMEO, the commitment of gas operators has become more than a clever marketing strategy.

The reality of losses of marketable products is increasingly becoming a source of concern for gas operators and their investors. However, more needs to be done regularly in order to harness as much energy as possible to avoid waste of resources. Methane measurements and greenhouse gas monitoring will be the talk of the town for many years to come. Spending time and resources on field measurements and methane data capture is the necessary basis for more targeted methane reduction strategies.

GASTRAQ method can be used by operators to quantify methane losses based on a strong scientific approach.
