Methane Emissions Reduction – Research and Testing Facilities
Arolytics has developed AROViz, a cloud-based software that optimizes energy sector emissions management using proprietary algorithms and emissions models. The platform seamlessly tracks, manages, and reports greenhouse gas emissions for compliance and ESG disclosure purposes, providing all methane metrics at your fingertips. Arolytics has developed an emissions simulation model which can save companies on their emissions measurement costs through the modelling and creation of an optimized leak detection program.
Arolytics develops custom, cost-effective fugitive leak detection programs, and provides support from the initial planning stages to regulatory reporting.
Clearstone provides methane emissions reduction services, from identification through to the evaluation and implementation of cost-effective methane mitigation opportunities. It provides assessments of baseline emissions and emission reductions using state-of-the-art measurement techniques and engineering estimation tools, along with the development of emission factors and inventories.

CMC Research Institutes provides a facility for the development, testing and demonstration of methane detection and monitoring technologies. It provides controlled and calibrated releases of methane, natural gas and carbon dioxide for the calibration and validation of methane detection and monitoring technologies. This allows technology developers to determine how well detection and monitoring technologies work, and the variation or dependence of their performance as a function of methane release rate and environmental conditions.
Durlon 9000 PTFE’s tight sealing characteristics is commonly used in process piping and equipment in chemical, pulp & paper, food & beverage, and other general industrial applications where resistance to highly aggressive chemicals is required. Durlon’s product specifications ensure, safety, reliability, and assurance of a significant reduction in overall fugitive emissions. In a low carbon world, tighter sealing is the difference between an unplanned release and zero emissions.
Energy & Emissions Research Lab (EERL) specializes in data analytics, field measurements, research study design and coordination, technoeconomic assessment, inventory development, ethane survey analytics, airborne measurement coordination, liquid storage tank emission quantification, and flare emissions measurement. It specializes in complex problems and getting detailed answers at the highest standards of scientific rigour, filling knowledge gaps and providing information to enable mitigation and set informed environmental policy.
Eosense designs, develops and manufactures instruments for measuring and monitoring environmental gas emissions from soil and water.
Eosense offers methane monitoring tools and instrumentation. It provides stationary and semi-stationary continuous monitoring tools to support methane management programs. It provides tools to improve site understanding, enabling companies to manage what they can measure. Eosense’s mobile tool enables asset screening to happen alongside regular site activities, allowing more sites to be visited while labour-intensive tools are used only as needed. Eosense reduces the cost of methane monitoring programs by screening assets so that resources can be better allocated.
Gaspro Compression builds, services and sells casing gas compressors that are used to capture the otherwise vented casing gas on oil wells. It also builds, sells and services Vapour Recovery Unit (VRU) packages used to capture the vapors off of storage tanks. Gaspro Compression has a 100% (zero emission) BTEX recovery package that has been recognized by Canadian regulators as an approved product for this application. Gaspro Compression has focused on small emission capture and has developed the most cost-effective product for each application, assisting its clients to stay compliant with ever-tightening restrictions on emissions in the oil and gas industry.
Gas Recon Inc (GRI) offers foot-based and Utility Terrain Vehicle (UTV)-based laser methane detection, GIS tagged data and a software suite. Its leak detection and repair (LDAR) capability utilizes laser and Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) sensors, while its Surface Emissions Mapping uses UTV system for large area surveys, including well sites. All data is GIS tagged, can use client secure servers for data delivery, and has rapid area surveys with UTVs. GRI also completes surveys on high and low pressure pipeline systems. The benefits come in recovered gas, increased safety and integrity of pipeline system, and leak identification and pinpoint.
GreenPath Energy Ltd. is an emission management service and solution provider for the oil and gas industry. It specializes in equipment inventory collection, leak detection and repair (LDAR) for fugitive emissions, and methane emission reduction project development. GreenPath provides fugitive and vented emission detection and measurement; data management and reporting, including ESG and GHG reporting and regulatory compliance; alt-FEMP program design, implementation and execution; and identification of emission reductions opportunities.

Modern West Advisory is a strategic consulting firm working with oil and gas industry, government, and clean technology providers on emission reduction and management activities. It provides four core services: Corporate emissions compliance; Carbon offset project development; Environment, Social, Governance (ESG) strategy and report writing, and applied research. Its work identifies emission reduction projects and has resulted in over 400,000 tCO2e reduction over the past four years.
Montrose offers Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) fugitive emissions testing, pneumatic/equipment inventory, and compressor seal and stack testing. This testing results with the detection and quantification of undesirable gases emitted into the atmosphere. Efficiently detecting these gases allows operators to complete their required repairs to reduce or eliminate the leaks, resulting in less pollution and wasted saleable methane.
Questor provides specialized patented waste gas incineration products that destroy harmful pollutants in any waste gas stream, allowing clients to meet emission regulations, eliminate methane emissions, address community concerns and improve safety at industrial sites. Questor’s clean combustion equipment is currently used in multiple segments of the energy infrastructure industry including drilling, completions, production, midstream, downstream, and transportation and distribution.
Telops offers the Hyper-Cam and the Hyper-Cam Mini, both passive infrared hyperspectral imaging systems that combines high spatial and spectral resolution. They provide real-time radiometrically calibrated data for gas and solid detection and identification. The Hyper-Cam and Hyper-Cam Mini can detect and quantify gaseous emissions, such as methane. They offer the best spectral resolution on the market, have a weatherproof enclosure ideal for field measurements, and are dual-use: they both can be used on the ground or in an airplane.
