It’s important to choose the right technology in order to achieve your emissions reduction goals. Bridger Photonics is the industry leader in sensitive methane detection at an actionable scale. We have developed proprietary LiDAR-based instrumentation, Gas Mapping LiDAR™ (GML), with the industry's best aerial emission rate detection sensitivity. We’ve worked hard to ensure our solution is simple and actionable for oil and gas operators, and to assemble a world-class team to support our clients.
WHAT WE DO
Why Gas Mapping LiDAR?
Our technology strikes the balance of consistently detecting methane leaks of a meaningful size, without burying the operator with repairs. The sensitivity, actionability, and efficiency of GML are second to none.
Sensitive Methane Detection
Gas Mapping LiDAR operates with an unmatched aerial emission rate detection sensitivity of 3 kg/hr with a 90% Probability of Detection (PoD) in typical production basins. For the distribution sector, we adjust parameters to achieve a detection sensitivity of 0.5 kg/hr with 90% PoD in typical operating conditions to ensure we find important leaks for utilities.
Actionable Emissions Data
The data we provide with Gas Mapping LiDAR is immediately useful and actionable for our clients. There are several pieces of data we can include regarding each methane emission source — here are a few of them:
Gas Mapping LiDAR data includes GPS pinpoints of the emitter source, down to the equipment level, directly from measured gas plume imagery. No need to guess or estimate where an emission could be coming from. This means that crews can be directed to specific repair locations.
Methane Emission Rate Quantification
We quantify every emission source with an emission rate (sometimes called flux rate), as well as a maximum path-integrated concentration so that your team can prioritize repairs and accurately track emissions for your total emissions inventory.
Visual Plume Imagery
Methane plume imagery provides a powerful visual that shows where leaks are coming from on each site that creates urgency for repairs. The plume imagery, when overlaid onto aerial or satellite imagery of the site, provides context of the emission beyond just GPS coordinates.
Our scans cover up to hundreds of production facilities per day, or up to hundreds of miles of pipeline per day. Because we collect data aerially, we don’t require site access. Your team simply provides your GIS information, and we handle all of the scanning logistics and provide you with the emissions data.
