Global emission monitoring startup receives $3.3m to monitor oil and gas in British Columbia

Montreal-based GHGSat, which builds global emissions monitoring solutions, has received $3.3 million from Sustainable Development Technology Canada.

GHGSat is using the funding on a project that measures emissions of oil and gas facilities in British Columbia’s Montney region.

The goal of the project is to demonstrate that a tiered monitoring system, using GHGSat’s satellites and aircraft instruments, can detect more leaks quicker and at a lower cost than the regulatory standard, which is based on optical gas imaging cameras.

The project has a total value of $9.8 million CAD and will have field operations beginning in early 2020.
