EVALUATION OF INNOVATIVE METHANE DETECTION TECHNOLOGIES
Interstate Technology & Regulatory Council (ITRC), Web-based document, 2018

Methane is the primary component in natural gas. The purpose of this document is to provide an overview of existing and emerging methane detection and quantification technologies, as well as performance characteristics and parameters to consider in technology evaluation. Regulatory barriers to the use and adoption of new or innovative technologies that have the potential to reduce methane emissions are identified. The guide is intended to enable regulators, facility owners and operators, and other users to evaluate, compare, and select suitable technologies that detect and quantify methane emissions from various segments of the oil and gas supply chain for compliance with existing and forthcoming methane emission (leak) regulations, as well as to monitor inventories and enhance workforce and public safety. https://methane-1.itrcweb.org/
