Methane, a potent greenhouse gas, is a major concern, especially in the oil and gas industry, due to emissions across the extraction and transportation stages. GHGWATCH provides advanced monitoring solutions for methane emissions. By utilising this technology, companies can mitigate environmental impact, improve operational efficiency, and promote sustainability.


In response to increasing methane emissions, the Global Methane Pledge was introduced during COP26 in November 2021 to spur action towards reducing methane emissions. The International Energy Agency (IEA) and government commitments have been inspiring efforts to advance technologies for monitoring and mitigating methane, leading to a renewed surge for innovations in methane detection and reduction.
