GHGSat has partnered with COSIA, Schlumberger, Encana, GreenPath, and others in Alberta to develop and demonstrate a Calgary-based Aircraft-Satellite hybrid methane detection and quantification system.

The two-tiered satellite/aircraft approach will enable screening and detection of large leaks from diffuse or point sources from orbit, followed by more detailed imaging and quantification by aircraft surveys that can enable directed repair of methane leaks.
