Methane Emissions Reduction – Reporting and Related Software Services
Canadian UAVs (CUAVs) provides aerial surveillance and monitoring technologies that allow companies to determine where emissions are propagating, and then devise a means to reduce their impact. Its Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) fly further and lower than manned aircraft, allowing it to gather more data in a very cost and time efficient manner. Using CUAVs services, operators can implement a thorough and frequent investigation of their assets to understand what level of emissions they are contributing. CUAVs services provide insight for a client’s reporting and mitigation effort and are a tool for producers and operators to execute on their net-zero emission commitments.
With flight safety a first priority, Canadian UAVS also provides solutions for a range of applications. Canadian UAVS provides GIS, risk and insurance mitigation, iterative automated topographical data acquisition, mining, energy, and asset security solutions.

LCO Technologies is a green technology innovator and distributor of PANAM Engineers high quality, low cost instrumentation Hand Valves, Manifolds, and Tube Fittings. In 2016, LCO established itself as one of Alberta’s leading oil and gas innovators with the invention of an orbital drive system for chemical injection or instrument air compression, called the Crossfire.
The Crossfire is an ultra-high efficiency drive system used as a configurable common platform to perform specific tasks that reduce or eliminate methane venting. One Crossfire, configured as a chemical injection pump with 4 heads, can replace 4 pneumatic pumps. Configured as an instrument air compressor, the Crossfire eliminates methane venting from instrumentation. Configured as a vapour recovery unit (VRU), the Crossfire can capture tank vent gas and re-compress it for destruction. Modbus communication protocol and data logging provides information on everything from operating parameters to data for carbon credits.
