Methane emissions detection technology for the entire oil and natural gas supply chain.
The oil & gas industry is under tremendous pressure to reduce methane emissions. This pressure has put the industry in an untenable position, as no viable technology has existed to image and quantify this invisible gas in a reliable, sensitive, and cost-effective manner—until now.
Bridger Photonics’ Gas Mapping LiDAR™ makes it simple and cost-effective for the oil & gas industry to reduce methane emissions and improve overall safety. Gas Mapping LiDAR scans oil & gas infrastructures from the air, pinpoints the leaking equipment and quantifies the emission rate. This process creates a map that images each plume, eliminating the need to visit each site, so operators only need to deploy field crews when a leak is detected.
Detecting >90% of Production Basin Emissions
Our unmatched sensitivity helps detect and locate leaks and identifies the sites you need to visit, which piece of equipment is leaking, and the associated leak rate, helping you reduce unnecessary site visits by 60 to 90%.
Meet Regulatory Compliance with Verifiable Data
Efficiently navigate to leak sources and avoid deploying for leaks off your right-of-way using our aerial methane plume imagery with GPS coordinates. We filter out interfering off-site emissions through proprietary analytics, greatly increasing the efficiency of your operations.
Keep Workers and Communities Safe
Gas Mapping LiDAR™ makes your service area safer, uncovering the most dangerous methane leaks while reducing false positives. Our technology directly images the plume location and quantifies the leak rates of all your emissions, including underground and roof-top emissions.
Accurately Quantify Methane Emissions
Our technology reveals methane hot spots and whole site emissions, providing accurate emissions profiles and enabling targeted emission mitigation.

HOW IT WORKS
Laser Methane Detection Technology
- LASER TECHNOLOGY
Bridger uses a form of laser technology called LiDAR, which stands for light detection and ranging. Learn more about LiDAR here.
- METHANE LEAK DETECTION
Our state of the art sensors transmit continuous wave lasers at a frequency that is known to be absorbed by methane.
- AERIAL LDAR
Gas Mapping LiDAR is attached to an aircraft and scans the laser beam across the ground to capture data.
WHAT WE DO
Analyze & Refine Aerial Scan Data
- DATA CAPTURE & PHOTOGRAPHY
During aerial scans, our state-of-the-art Gas Mapping LiDAR scanner captures data and imagery in real-time.
- ANALYTICS & ALGORITHMS
After the scan, the accumulated data is processed through proprietary algorithms before being analyzed by Bridger's data technicians.
- PROCESSING & PREPARATION
Skilled data technicians leverage data outputs to quantify and classify emissions,, prepare reports, and quality check all data products.
