Bridger Photonics works with operators throughout the oil and natural gas production sector to help ensure they can reach their emissions reduction goals. Our innovative Gas Mapping LiDAR™ technology assists producers in reducing their methane emissions efficiently by identifying leaks quickly and accurately. Our sensitive methane detection technology is able to detect more than 90% of typical production basin emissions that are at or above 3 kg/hr, with the potential to help operators meet U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) methane emission regulations and even recover revenue via recaptured gas.
What's it Like to Work with Bridger Photonics?
Gas Mapping LiDAR uses laser technology to detect gas leaks for efficient and effective methane emissions reduction. To begin the process, operators provide Bridger Photonics with their geographic production facility data. The Bridger team will plan, schedule, and coordinate scans of the assets via aircraft, ensuring frequency requirements and client goals are met. Information on leak location and rate is recorded, and high-resolution aerial photography and GPS coordinates are also captured during the flyover.
After the scan is completed, the data is analyzed by our experienced technicians. They prepare detailed reports that include emission rates and specific geographic locations of the leaks, max path concentration, aerial imagery, and the date and time of the scan for every single emission. This actionable data can help companies comply with upcoming methane regulations, reach their safety and environmental goals, and meet natural gas certification standards.
Why Gas Mapping LiDAR?
The companies that call on Bridger include many of the biggest names in the oil and gas industry, and they count on Gas Mapping LiDAR to help them detect and reduce their emissions. Gas Mapping LiDAR provides sensitive methane detection and actionable data that is helping companies efficiently reduce methane emissions.
Unmatched Aerial Methane Detection Sensitivity
Bridger provides strong detection sensitivity within the production sector, operating with a sensitivity of 3 kg/hr with >90% probability of detection, helping operators feel confident in meaningful emissions reduction. This emission rate detection sensitivity is unmatched for aerial methane detection and helps companies reach meaningful emissions reduction. Learn more about why detection sensitivity matters here.
Actionable and Impactful Emissions Data
The data provided by Gas Mapping LiDAR is actionable and impactful for operators looking to reduce their methane emissions. GML data helps ground crews prioritize repairs and more efficiently locate them once on site. Ground crews can arrive at sites prepared with GML’s data of where and what may be leaking. Air Quality and EHS teams can use this data to have a better understanding of their full emissions inventory, as well as potentially see patterns that require infrastructure updates.
Reach Certification and Simplify Compliance
Gas Mapping LiDAR is being used to help a number of companies meet natural gas certification requirements of several of the current standards. Gas Mapping LiDAR was also included in the first ever AMEL under the EPA’s Quad Oa rule and is on track to meet the requirements in the latest proposed EPA methane regulations.
