Sensirion Connected Solutions, a provider of sensor-based monitoring solutions, and Intero - The Sniffers, an environmental and integrity service provider, have partnered to help the oil and gas industry reduce methane emissions and comply with voluntary initiatives and new standards, Intero - The Sniffers announced through a press release on Thursday, March 16.
Intero - The Sniffers has experience conducting VOC and methane emission measurements and integrity surveys for global oil and gas players. Sensirion Connected Solutions complements this expertise by developing a ground-based methane emissions monitoring solution called Nubo Sphere.
Nubo Sphere is a reliable IoT solution that detects, locates, and quantifies methane emissions across various industries. The deployment of real-time, continuous methane concentration data enables the detection, localization, and quantification of emissions much earlier than was previously possible through human interaction alone, leading to increased safety and reduced environmental burden through fast, accurate, and cost-saving damage control via rapid incident response actions.
“The energy industry is increasingly focused on reducing methane emissions, and therefore our partnership with Intero - The Sniffers is an ideal fit and comes at the perfect time. With our combined service offering, we have all the necessary tools to assist customers in reducing their methane emissions and meeting the highest reporting standards, both voluntary and regulatory,” said Marnix Valkeniers, Regional Sales Manager at Sensirion Connected Solutions.
The partnership offers a wide range of proven technologies to detect and quantify methane emissions and helps customers understand and improve their emissions situation. With companies continuing to join the voluntary Oil and Gas Methane Partnership (OGMP 2.0), which the upcoming European Methane Regulation builds upon, the timing of this partnership is just right.
“We see that the reduction of methane emissions is at the top of our clients’ environmental agendas these days.
The industry is working heavily on improving their understanding of their greenhouse gases and on reducing their carbon footprint. With Sensirion Connected Solutions, both our client portfolios can now benefit from proven technologies to detect and quantify methane emissions,” said Philippe Guldemont, Managing Director of Intero - The Sniffers.
