Twin Eagle Consulting partnered with Pixel Velocity to develop an efficient leak-detection solution to monitor fugitive emissions and hydrocarbon leaks 24/7.

Fugitive emissions and hydrocarbon leaks at an oil and gas site can cause devastating explosions if they’re not caught early. It’s not only a risk to the facility, but the surrounding community. That’s why an upstream oil and gas company in the Denver-Julesburg (DJ) Basin of Colorado demanded an efficient and remote way to monitor their oil pads 24/7. The company drills on approximately 300 oil pads in the DJ Basin, all located in populated areas near homes and schools. If they missed a leak at one of their oil pads or caught it too late, the company would be forced to evacuate thousands of people.
