    Project Canary | Methane Quantification: The Technology & Policy Opportunities Moving Toward Differentiated Gas

    Presentation Carbon Management/Decarbonization

    Project Canary has been applying a newly reformed quantification algorithm to more accurately predict total site emissions. Leveraging a new machine learning model, customers can analyze trends in large data sets to detect and quantify all operational and fugitive emissions, regardless of size. An enhanced emission detection algorithm can confidently exclude offsite emissions sources, ensuring that emission numbers calculated are only for a specific pad. These strides in accuracy and quantification will continue to mitigate risk and drive operators toward their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals.
