Gas Leak Avoidance

Reducing highly potent methane gas from warming the atmosphere.

Already, we have repaired nearly 40,000 methane gas leaks preventing 39 million Tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere. The impact on reducing the warming of the planet is immediate and significant.

How big is the problem we’re solving?

It’s crucial in changing the warming effect on our planet. During the first 20 years of its release, methane is more than 80 times as powerful as CO2 at warming the climate. Over 100 years, methane is up to 28 times more potent than CO2 at trapping heat in the atmosphere.

In least developed countries (LDCs), above-ground gas distribution networks accessed by low-income families are typically repaired only on an emergency basis, mainly when the public reports larger leaks. This means that tens of thousands of small and medium-sized leaks can go undetected.

A valuable resource is wasted when leaks are prevalent throughout a gas transmission and delivery system, and potent methane gases are released into the atmosphere.

How we’re solving it

Gas leakages are reduced by implementing advanced leak detection and repair (LDAR) procedures utilizing state-of-the-art technology and equipment. Our programs provide the equipment and training to walk the gas lines to locate and repair leaks.

The people get:

Reliable gas pressure reducing burns and unnecessary exposure to a harmful gas

Increased public health and safety by averting leaks that lead to explosions

Improved infrastructure and adoption of cleaner technologies

Employment for 100+ local people and provides knowledge transfer

Increased economic value and retention of a valuable resource

The planet gets:

Reduction of methane released into the atmosphere avoiding significant warming impacts

High impact fully verified.
