Kayrros Methane Watch
is an automated emissions surveillance system using data from the European Space Agency’s Sentinel-5P satellite. Unique Kayrros algorithms detect, quantify and attribute emissions directly to their sources. Abnormal concentrations of methane are linked to assets such as oil wells or gas compression stations based on local information and satellite imagery resolution.
Kayrros provides traders with data to quantify portfolio footprints and assess trades and counterparties.
Kayrros Methane Watch data are based on real-world measurements not desktop assumptions.
Worldwide onshore sources of emissions are revisited with an average frequency of 3-4 days depending on weather conditions
Methane Watch sources data from the Sentinel-5P satellite, part of the Copernicus network of satellites operated by the European Space Agency. Abnormal concentrations of methane are automatically detected by Kayrros proprietary algorithms, which apply meteorological models to determine source flow rates and locations taking wind direction and other local factors into account. Methane hotspots can be attributed to specific assets, such as oil wells or gas compressor stations, based on local information including flaring and venting data and the use of high-resolution images where needed.
