The Sniffers &Kayrros join for methane detection system

09 February 2021

The Sniffers, the leading international environmental and integrity service provider, and Kayrros, the leading global carbon tracking company, are joining forces to provide a methane monitoring solution for gas and energy companies worldwide.

The Sniffers conducts in-depth surveys of oil and gas facilities to identify and quantify methane emissions from installations directly at their sources. Kayrros leverages satellite imagery from the European Space Agency Copernicus satellite constellation and applies artificial intelligence to detect, measure and attribute methane emissions to their sources in a global approach that continuously monitors large-scale methane leaks around the world in near real-time. The two complementary approaches can help companies reduce their methane footprints in a transparent and cost-effective manner.

"Our new partnership will allow global gas- and energy companies to monitor their methane emissions using both a top-down and bottom-up approach, leaving them with a complete and credible picture of their methane footprints. We look forward to working with Kayrros on helping clients reach their objectives in reducing their methane emissions," said Bart Wauterickx, CEO The Sniffers.

Antoine Rostand, CEO Kayrros, commented, "This partnership presents an excellent opportunity for companies to decarbonize their portfolios from the ground up, demonstrate their progress in doing so and move methane from the cost center to the profit center. Our combined technology enables an unprecedented level of granularity in tackling methane emissions."
