Bridger Photonics and Natural Gas Differentiation
The natural gas industry is feeling increased pressure from investors and end-users to adopt responsible operating practices and reduce methane emissions. Voluntary initiatives have been developed to allow companies to differentiate their product by highlighting their leading methane emissions management programs. Initiatives can focus solely on methane emissions and methane intensities or can include additional environmental, social, and governance (ESG) metrics.
Across certification and differentiated natural gas programs, Bridger Photonics’ Gas Mapping LiDAR™ (GML) helps companies throughout the natural gas supply chain meet the most stringent requirements for gas differentiation.

Differentiate Your Gas
Oil and gas operators have the choice of numerous gas differentiation initiatives that they can pursue. Below are several popular options.
The Oil and Gas Methane Partnership (OGMP) 2.0 is a voluntary initiative of the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) to increase the accuracy and transparency of methane emissions reporting. Partner companies commit to attaining reduced emission levels while progressively increasing the rigor of their emissions reporting methodology. Excellence as an OGMP 2.0 partner is recognized by “Gold Standard” attribution. GML technology can help operators comprehensively measure their emissions for OGMP 2.0 reporting.
The Veritas protocol is a set of guidance documents for calculating methane emissions inventories using direct measurement data. The protocol covers best practices and discusses pitfalls in emissions measurement and reporting. GML technology can be used for calculating total methane emissions under the Veritas protocol.
MiQ is a voluntary certification program created to facilitate a rapid reduction in methane emissions from the oil and gas sector. The MiQ certification process evaluates operators based on reported methane emission levels in addition to the policies and practices in place to minimize emissions. Bridger Photonics’ GML technology provides emissions monitoring and quantification for the certification.
EO100™ is a voluntary certification program based on the EO100 Standard for Responsible Energy Development that allows energy companies to publicly demonstrate their commitment ESG performance and to reducing methane emissions. Deploying GML can improve the certification grade of operators seeking EO100 certification.
