Methane detection

Field research

At the Newell County Facility, CMC works with industry, tech developers and researchers focused on emissions. We test leak detection and quantification technologies and work with academia to do field research on methods and instruments like optical gas imaging.


Alberta program

CMC, together with the Sundre Petroleum Operators Group, was selected as delivery agents for a three-year, $17.6 million funding initiative to support the development of Alternative Fugitive Emissions Management Programs (Alt-FEMPs) and new methane detection technologies.

Funded by the Government of Alberta through the Technology Innovation and Emissions Reduction (TIER) fund, the program is intended to reduce methane emissions in the oil and gas sector. It will also support regulatory reviews, improve understanding of emissions sources, reduce the costs to the industry and assure best practices for methane detection and management.
