Industry Brief

University of Adelaide researchers in Australia are developing a new type of laser system that will monitor methane levels across large areas in order to monitor emissions of the greenhouse gas. The system has the potential to detect methane leaks from long-distance underground gas pipelines and gas fields, including coal seam gas extraction operations, and to measure methane emissions from animal production, the university said. “We hope to accurately measure methane concentrations up to a distance of 5 kilometers,” said project leader David Ottaway, senior lecturer in the university’s School of Chemistry and Physics. “This will give us an ability to map methane over an area as large as 25 square kilometers in a very short time. At the moment current technology only allows detection at a single point source as it blows past the detector.”

NGVs Analyzed for Stirring NatGas Demand

With 35 states having created various levels of incentives for using natural gas in transportation and the Energy Information Administration (EIA) predicting gas use in transportation will grow 100% by 2017, the latest Barclays analysis of U.S. gas broke down some of the metrics and concluded that natural gas vehicles (NGV) on the road will have to swell 12-fold between 2011 and 2017 to meet the EIA prediction.
