TotalEnergies is partnering with GHGSat to develop a satellite imaging technology to monitor potential methane leak occurrences at offshore facilities.
he technology, known as “Glint Mode”, annuls interference effects on data acquisition by observing sun glint on the ocean surface.
This satellite imaging can be combined with local measurements for which TotalEnergies has developed the ultra-light AUSEA1 drone-mounted spectrometer.
TotalEnergies and GHGSat will also be conducting six satellite observations in Glint Mode of TotalEnergies offshore sites.
As part of a continuous improvement program, TotalEnergies has decided to initiate a new stage in its collaboration with GHGSat to develop an innovative satellite mapping technology suited to offshore infrastructure
said Marie-Noëlle Séméria, Chief Technology Officer at TotalEnergies.
This partnership builds on TotalEnergies’ commitment within the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) Oil and Gas Methane Partnership (OGMP) to reduce the industry’s methane emissions.
