The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will hold a workshop Aug. 23 & 24, 2021 on innovative technologies for detecting methane emissions from oil and natural gas operations. The workshop will focus on methane-sensing technologies that are not currently approved for use in EPA’s New Source Performance Standards for the oil and natural gas industry and how those technologies could be applied in the oil and gas sector.
Over the course of the two days, technology end-users and evaluators will provide presentations, each approximately 20 minutes in length, describing their experiences with innovative technologies. A short question and answer session will follow each presentation; audience members will have a chance to submit questions to the presenters.
Additionally, the workshop will include a virtual exhibit hall where innovative technology vendors will provide short presentations focusing on technology capability, applicability, and data quality.
EPA encourages anyone who is interested in developments in methane detection technology to attend the workshop. Ordering a ticket through this page constitutes an event registration. All participants (including panelists and members of the public) are required to register. The link to the live event will be sent to attendees prior to the workshop.
