Topic: Project Canary: A Case Study in ‘Management By Exception’
A practical approach to real time monitoring for fugitive gas emissions
Speaker: David Armitage, CEO, Cartasite
Methane is not something we want to release into the atmosphere. The industry would rather sell it and see that CH4 help power tomorrow’s energy economy.
Fugitive gas emissions are a hot button issue for the industry. Today, the best practice is to send a field worker out in a pickup with a $100K FLIR camera to randomly inspect each well. This best practice doesn’t scale well. There are over 780,000 producing properties in the US. It would be vastly better if we could figure out which wells are leaking gas and then dispatch someone to find and fix. The problem is methane is lighter than air. And it is really hard to detect.
Management by exception is everyone’s focal point these days. So far, no one has come up with a way to cost effectively, remotely monitor for fugitive gas emissions. Perhaps it is time to do some out of the box thinking. Mr. Armitage will share a new best practice approach for real time well site monitoring.

The 6th biennial NGSTech Conference is presented in association with Natural Gas Sampling Technology, Inc., an emerging non-profit industry association dedicated to providing educational opportunities to the energy industry in the science and advancement of hydrocarbon sampling. The NGSTech Conference is an educational and informational forum in which energy industry professionals share the latest in hydrocarbon sampling research, technological developments, processes, and applications. The conference will feature presentations and discussions related to the sampling and analysis of natural gas, gas condensate, liquefied natural gas and petroleum liquids, as well as other important associated topics. Manufacturers of equipment, as well as service specialists will be on hand to exhibit the systems and services that can enable participants to achieve their sampling and analytical objectives. NGSTech is a unique opportunity for energy industry professionals to participate in the world’s first, one-of-a-kind petroleum sampling and technology conference.
1st Quarter 2018 Luncheon – February 15
Topic: Our Gas Energy Future – Xcel Energy
Speaker: Cheryl Campbell, Senior Vice President, Gas Operations, Xcel Energy
With the push to renewable energy, what is the future for the gas industry? What are the risks and how can companies mitigate those risks?
Date & Time: Thursday, February 15 (11:45 AM to 1:15 PM)
Topic: Oil and Gas Measurement at the Office of Natural Resources Revenue
Speaker: Kelly Miller, Office of Natural Resources Revenue
The Office of Natural Resources Revenue (ONRR) in the U.S. Department of the Interior is responsible for collecting, verifying, and distributing proceeds from oil and gas production on Federal and American Indian lands. Accurate measurement of oil and gas is crucial for ensuring that proper royalties are paid. This talk gives an overview of ONRR’s production and royalty verification efforts, paying particular attention to measurement issues.
