The patent-pending Kathairos™ System eliminates methane emissions from pneumatic devices at remote oil and gas facilities at a low cost. The solution uses liquid nitrogen to replace methane as the operating gas for pressurized devices, delivering a zero-emission result reliably with no maintenance or operator input required. Once the system is installed on site, there is no maintenance and the warranty is life-of-well, driven by a low cost ‘propane model’ whereby the operator pays a low fixed rental fee and a variable fee based on the nitrogen used. Carbon credits are easily calculated since the operator will know the volume of nitrogen used.

NEXT Compression provides flare gas reduction and vapor recovery compression technology to help gas plants and refineries reduce and/or eliminate fugitive methane emissions. Waste gas is a by-product of the oil extraction process, which is often burned or flared-off into the atmosphere and is thus referred to as flare gas. Instead of flaring off the gas (burning the gas into the atmosphere), the flare gas is captured, treated and converted into usable electricity and is either used on site or sold into the grid. NEXT Vapor Recovery Units (VRU) provide similar technology.
