Natural gas distribution utilities help power homes throughout the U.S., but utilities face a unique challenge: unlike other sectors in the industry, the infrastructure for natural gas methane distribution is very close to neighborhoods, commercial buildings, schools, and other places where people gather. This proximity is why Gas Mapping LiDAR is ideal for distribution utilities. GML streamlines emissions detection by flying over distribution networks to detect and locate emissions, helping them be mitigated quickly and safely.
How Gas Mapping LiDAR Works
Gas Mapping LiDAR uses a high-tech laser sensor attached to an aircraft. As it flies over a natural gas distribution system, it sensitively detects, locates, and quantifies methane emissions.
Once a scan is completed, our experienced data technicians analyze the results and compile a comprehensive report that provides details about where plumes have been detected, their size, and their maximum concentrations. High-resolution imagery is also collected, so emissions can be mapped and mitigated quickly and efficiently. When used as a methane gas detector, Bridger’s technology can help improve safety for distribution utilities.
Why Bridger Photonics?
At Bridger, our mission is to enable clean, safe, and streamlined oil and gas operations by providing actionable data for methane emissions reduction. We arrange all logistical aspects of sensor deployment and data processing and provide the client with data via reports and GIS files in their preferred format. Our state-of-the-art technology, sensors, and analytics help some of the biggest names in the industry reduce their emissions and improve their safety. With our help, natural gas companies streamline their leak detection and provide safer distribution in communities.
