Chevron has made clear strides in recent years in methane detection: The US supermajor has deployed ground-level sensors, is deploying aircraft and is teaming up with others to pinpoint emissions sources via satellite data. While that detection has improved, however, quantification has emerged as the latest challenge, Vice President of Strategy & Sustainability Bruce Niemeyer tells Energy Intelligence. “The sensor detects the presence of something, which is methane,” he said on the sidelines of the Reuters Global Energy Transition conference in New York. “And then the question is, how much? And the challenge is, the sensor can't tell how much.”
