The independent said it would deploy another 500 methane emissions detection devices to its field operations team, building upon a 100-unit pilot project it has conducted in the region.

The pilot project “proved to be effective in identifying small emissions for trained well tenders to eliminate at little-to-no incremental cost,” stated Diversified. The firm said the portable detection devices enable its skilled personnel to identify and remediate methane emissions otherwise undetectable with traditional Audio, Visual and Olfactory (AVO) techniques.
