Permian Basin Survey: An array of aerial surveys in the Permian Basin to acquire the baseline distribution of methane emission rates and sources

AUGUST 2021
A Scientific Insights article highlights results from a study aimed at identifying and statistically analyzing leaks and leak rates in the Permian Basin by type of equipment. Read the CAMS white paper to learn more about the results and efforts to assess capabilities of an airborne LiDAR technology for detecting and quantifying methane leaks in the Permian.

The Methane Emission Estimation Tool: A Model for Developing Fine Scale Spatial and Temporal Methane Emission Estimates for Oil and Gas Basins

JUNE 2021
A Scientific Insights article describes the Methane Emission Estimation Tool (MEET), a community modeling tool developed with the support of CAMS by researchers at the University of Texas and Colorado State University for constructing inventories of methane emissions from oil and gas operations.

A Searchable Database for Prediction of Emission Compositions from Upstream Oil and Gas Sources

FEBRUARY 2021 | Environmental Science & Technology
A peer-reviewed article by University of Texas researchers published in Environmental Science & Technology (ES&T) presents a database tool that can be used to estimate emissions compositions at oil and gas production sites. Funding to perform this work was provided by CAMS.
