February 20, 2019: University of Texas to Conduct Methane Emissions Studies
An interesting development from the Collaboratory to Advance Methane Science caught my eye this week.
The group announced that it has awarded its first research project to the University of Texas-Austin to study spatial and temporal methane emissions profiles across various oil and gas basins and develop a publicly available tool to model emissions inventories from oil and gas production.
The particulars of the study are available on the website – but will be conducted in conjunction with Colorado State University and SLR Consulting, and will develop libraries of emissions data sets and activity factors. The model will have the flexibility to select custom emissions and activity factors from these libraries or utilize data provided by the user.
I know we at ONE Future will be awaiting the results with interest!
