Hot topics for oil & gas
- Problem: Myriad threats.
- Solution: Use one set of data to address multiple threats.
- Benefit: Save money, reduce risk.
Our business development team is fortunate to hear questions and interests from innovative leaders at oil & gas companies who are seeking new tools to assess the state of their infrastructure and environment. We listen intently to these questions because they drive us to continuously improve the accuracy of our targeting of industry’s most pressing challenges.
Here is what we have been hearing from our existing and potential oil & gas customers about the challenges they need help addressing:
With the ESG pressures that are dominating the industry today, it is not surprising that the ability to detect and quantify methane leaks is usually the first question we receive. We are the only company able to detect and quantify leaks with enough specificity (within 4 meters) to address operational challenges from satellite data. Our methane algorithm works on land or water and the quantification piece is useful for compliance and reporting. We are also seeing interest in using the methane tool to drive some of the certification processes for delivering certified gas sales to distributors.
Liquid Leak Detection
Satelytics’ Constant Vigilance™ suite of algorithms can identify liquid hydrocarbon and produced water leaks on facilities and flow line networks. Our upstream customers are using our liquid leak detection tools to drive their daily operations and limit loss of product.
Encroachments and Damage Prevention
This is the bread and butter of what Satelytics does and the number one area of interest we hear from prospective customers. “Can you notify us of illegal construction, digging, or other encroachments, near our infrastructure?” Satelytics uses high-resolution imagery (0.5-meter or better) to identify encroachments with specificity. The follow-on question is then, “How soon can you get us these alerts?” Our algorithms process on the cloud and analytics are ready for viewing in a matter of hours after satellite overpass.
Forestry and Carbon Uptake
Again, in the ESG space we are hearing increased interest in our forestry metrics for verifying carbon uptake and offsetting programs. This could be for direct management of lands or 3rd-party contracted forestry and carbon programs.
