As methane emissions have received more attention, new techniques and technologies are being developed to measure and quantify emissions. A significant amount of research on the detection capabilities of the different solutions has been done and numerous commercial solutions now exist for methane detection and measurement.
Most of the available solutions are developed for use on land. However, there are few studies on the new technologies’ applicability offshore. The purpose of this report was to systematically assess the newer developments of methane detection and measurement technology and their potential for use on Norwegian offshore oil and gas installations.
